Talking on the Oscars red carpet the Bohemian Rhapsody cast are surprised with how much the film has exposed Queen's music to a new audience.

Besides best picture and best actor nomination recognition, "Bohemian Rhapsody" has also been nominated at the 91st annual Academy Awards in the Best Film Editing (John Ottman), Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing categories.
