Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is the worst-rated film to win a Best Picture award at the Golden Globes since 1986.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, which assembles critical reviews from certified reviewers and publications and decides if the review deems the movie as Rotten or Fresh, Bohemian Rhapsody holds the lowest percentage of positive Fresh reviews of all Best Picture winners at the Globes in over three decades.
The film is nominated for Best British Film at the BAFTAs, while Rami Malek is up for the Best Actor gong.
Queen member Brian May spoke to Deadline on the topic of negative critical reviews, and he offered his explanation for the mixed reception.
“The mistake that critics made was reviewing the trailer instead of reviewing the film,” he said.
“They jumped to conclusions. Once people stake their claim, it’s hard for them to withdraw.”
The film is still in cinemas.
