Two ‘Queens’ Reigned Supreme at the BAFTAS
Safe to say the ‘Queens’ made the right move and they took home the wins at the 2019 BAFTAS. We are, of course, referring to Olivia Colman who played Queen Anne in The Favourite, and Rami Malek who transformed into Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. In a night where many expected to be surprised with the results, the winners turned out to be those who most people were rooting for. It was truly a night celebrating two queens, and to top it off, Colman and Malek had the pleasure of meeting the future king and queen of Britain – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – after the award ceremonies.
Olivia Colman is not an actress who came out of nowhere, her talent has been noticed by fans and critics alike, ever since her appearance as Sophie Chapman in TV comedy Peep Show. Furthermore, her Best Actress BAFTA Award is not her first award recognition, she has won in the past for the television shows Twenty Twelve, Broadchurch, and The Night Manager.
As she is set to appear as the second Queen Elizabeth in the third season of The Crown, we can’t help but expect more television awards to come her way in the coming years. Playing Queen Anne in The Favourite can be considered as the best role the actress has played yet, one that she portrayed with a mixture of eeriness, poignancy, and lots of humor.
Rami Malek can be called a dark horse in the best actor race, since it’s his first motion picture award nomination. Nonetheless, there have been numerous times newcomers have won in the past, so why shouldn’t Malek win? His transformation from his normal self to a living and breathing replica of Freddie Mercury was remarkable – appearance wise – and to say he’s incredibly reenacted each and every mannerism of the iconic singer is an understatement. It was a win that we can really say was well-deserved, and we will definitely be expecting more from him!
