Bohemian Rhapsody: Brian May slams THIS snub – 'People don't understand what was achieved'
The Queen biopic – which celebrates the life and work of Freddie Mercury – had seven nominations when the shortlists were announced on Wednesday, including Outstanding British Film and Best Actor for frontman Rami Malek. But it’s not up for Best Film, despite winning the prestigious top honour at the Golden Globes over the weekend. And there’s one other cast member, too, who May thinks deserves more recognition.
Taking to Instagram, he wrote: “Nominated for BAFTA(s)! Hoorah !”
After acknowledging everyone who had been shortlisted in categories such as Sound, Costume Design, Make-up and Hair and Cinematography, he went on to say that Lucy Boynton should have been given a Supporting Actress or even Leading Actress nod.
“Omissions – very strange to me that Lucy Boynton is ignored as either leading or support actress,” he said.
“And I’m disappointed not to see a nomination for special effects. I can only conclude that these people don’t really understand what was achieved by our team.
“There are no explosions or rocket ships, but the re-creation of Wembley Stadium as it was in 1985 is a massive triumph.
“I see people are already saying that Bohemian Rhapsody not even being included in the nominations for best film is …. weird !
“Well, maybe it says more about the panel than the film ! Actually, I think the people have already spoken. A million thanks, folks.”
With Ladbrokes he is the 4/7 tip, with Christian Bale on 3/1, Bradley Cooper on 4/1 and Viggo Mortensen on 25/1.
Meanwhile it is the fourth favourite to win the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Its competition at this stage is believed to be Green Book, A Star Is Born and Roma.
The BAFTAs take place on February 10, 2019.
