Apart from chatting with Nicole, which was definitely one of the highlights of the award night, Rami was also over the moon to be one of the nominees at the ceremony.
"I think what I try to do and going into every one of these moments is appreciate that I am here and nominated and that our film did well enough to put us in this position as it is," he shared.
Unfortunately, the 'Mr. Robot' actor did not go home with the award for Best Actor, Christian Bale won instead, but Rami had a positive outlook on losing out to stars like Bale.
The 37-year-old also shared that he is "thrilled" to be this year's winner at the Golden Globes and that it was "such an honour and so cool to have had that in my hand and to share it with everybody that worked on this film."
Rami celebrated his win with his friends and family by having a celebratory drink and eating burgers and fries. However, he revealed that he went easy on the alcoholic drinks so that he "could remember the whole thing as well."
After Nicole presented Bohemian Rhapsody with the final award of the night at the Golden Globes- best motion picture, drama- Malek, who has portrayed Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the film, was on stage to accept the award. He was then caught on camera attempting to say hello to Kidman, even reaching out and placing his hand on her back and Nicole accidentally snubbed Rami at the awards.
