During his acceptance speech, Rami got candid about his life-changing role as Freddie Mercury. "I may not have been the obvious choice, but I guess it worked out," he said. "Thank you, Queen, thank you, guys, for allowing me to be the tiniest part of your phenomenal, extraordinary legacy. I am forever in your debt."

"I think about what it would have been like to tell little bubba Rami that one day this might happen to him," he continued. "And I think his curly-haired little mind would be blown. He was struggling with his identity, trying to figure himself out. And I think to anyone struggling with theirs, and trying to discover their voice, listen, we made a film about a gay man, an immigrant, who lived his life just unapologetically himself."

Like Freddie Mercury, Rami is the child of immigrants, and he discussed what his win meant for people with families like his. "The fact that I'm celebrating Freddie and this story with you tonight is proof that we're longing for stories like this,” he explained. "I am the son of immigrants from Egypt, a first-generation American. And part of my story is being written right now. And I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you, and everyone who believed in me for this moment.
