Bohemian Rhapsody was only up for two Golden Globes, and won both of them. The band posted an adorable photo on the official Twitter account of Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor with cast members Rami Malek and Mike Myers. Producers Jim Beach and Graham King are also seen overjoyed in one photo.
In the same post, May and Taylor shared a solo shot with Malek to celebrate his win. They caption the post with a Freddie Mercury quote that made us tear up.
“’We’re family. We believe in each other. That’s everything.’ – Freddie Mercury,” the post reads.

He thanked Mercury and the fellow Queen members in his acceptance speech.
