Sunday's Golden Globes were a big night for Rami Malek. He won the award for Best Actor - Drama, and his film Bohemian Rhapsody won the award for Best Picture as well. He also used the amazing Golden Globes experience to meet Lady Gaga, in the most adorable way possible. Unfortunately, not every attempt that Malek made to meet famous people worked out on Sunday. He was also caught on camera trying to introduce himself to Nicole Kidman. Unfortunately, that one didn't work out quite as well, though it was no less cute. Check it out.
Man, we've all been there, haven't we?
Nicole Kidman had the honor of announcing the Best Picture award that was taken home by Bohemian Rhapsody. Everybody ended up on stage to accept the award and as people were on their way off, Malek is seen trying to get through the last few people in the crowd to say something to Kidman. Unfortunately, she turns away without noticing that he was there, leading to him trying to help her off stage before just being forced to give up on the entire thing.
Rami Malek became a social media star on Sunday night after a video of him introducing himself to Lady Gaga went viral. While the clip contains no audio, it's clear that he's trying to be as polite and unobtrusive as possible, shaking her hand and even giving her a slight bow as he excuses himself. Twitter fell in love with Rami Malek on Sunday, if they didn't love him already, and this is just another example of a classy guy being classy.
The guy wants to meet Nicole Kidman, because of course he does, who among us wouldn't try to do the same in his position? At the same time, if you get pushy about it then you're not going to make the impression you want to make. As this particular Twitter user put it, it's like trying to talk to your crush. You want to make it happen, but you don't want it to look like you're trying to make it happen, which means sometimes it doesn't happen.
Odds are Rami Malek will have other opportunities to meet Nicole Kidman, and many other celebrities, over the next couple months. There are going to be many more awards shows and considering Malek's performance as Freddie Mercury is pretty well regarded, that means he's likely to be nominated for many more awards. There's even a decent chance that next potential meeting could take place at the Academy Awards. Malek's win at the Golden Globes will certainly make him a stronger part of that conversation going forward.
If he continues to win those awards, then there's a pretty good chance other people are going to try to find polite ways to shake his hand.
