Actor Rami Malek is officially a Golden Globe winner, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to awkward moments.
On Sunday’s award show, Rami Malek was awarded Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. The film went on to win Best Motion Picture – Drama.
When the cast and creatives stormed the stage after Nicole Kidman announced their win, a hilariously awkward moment was captured.
Rami attempted to greet Nicole two different times, but she did not appear to notice.
Being the Golden Globe winner that he now is, Malek was featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Jimmy, of course, had to show the uncomfortable clip to Rami and his reaction was priceless.
Malek had no idea the interaction was caught on camera, so he is completely (and adorably) flustered by the footage.
Malek went on to tell Kimmel that he’s actually known Nicole Kidman for “many years.”
He also joked:
“I have a feeling that this is probably haunting me on the internet.”
The actor did clarify that he did “get love” from Keith Urban, Kidman’s husband, later that night.
The internet is obsessed with Rami’s endearing reaction.
