It was a big night for Bohemian Rhapsody at the Oscars. Rami Malek took home the Best Actor Award for his lead role in the Freddy Mercury biopic.

The 91st Academy Awards was a night filled with historic wins for diversity and representation. The biggest award of the night went to Green Book for best picture — edging out top competitors like Roma and Black Panther.

In addition to a foreign language film, Roma also took home directing and cinematography Oscars for Alfonso Cuaron, while Black Panther surprised with wins in production design, costume design and original score.

Best Actress was taken home by Olivia Colman for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite.

A star-studded list of presenters also took to the stage, including chef Jose Andres, Dana Carvey, Queen Latifah, Congressman John Lewis, Diego Luna, Tom Morello, Mike Myers, Trevor Noah, Amandla Stenberg, Barbra Streisand, and Serena Williams.

The evening also featured musical performances by Queen and Adam Lambert, as well as Jennifer Hudson, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and Bette Midler.

The highlight of the event was when Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper had the mercury rising with their intimate performance of the hit Shallow from their film A Star Is Born.

The pair walked onto the stage from their front row seats, with Cooper tapping into the raspy vocals he cultivated for the film while Gaga delivered her heart-thumping guttural wail.

The emotional performance saw the co-stars of the reimagined classic Hollywood tale finish sitting next to each other at the piano, faces nearly touching, exchanging intimate glances.

Moments later, a tearful Gaga won her first Oscar for best original song for the runaway hit about seeking greater fulfilment from life and love.
