Rami Malek nabbed Best Actor Oscar Sunday night at the 91st Academy Awards for his performance in the Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” but it was his fall off stage that has everyone talking.
The 37-year-old actor must have been overwhelmed by his win for his role as the late legendary Queen singer Freddie Mercury, because at the end of the show, he slipped right off the stage and fell to the ground, according to TMZ Monday.

In the clip, we can hear the “Mr. Robot” star hit the ground hard and other people around him react, asking if he is okay. He was treated by paramedics and is said to be doing just fine, despite possibly being a bit embarrassed.
The show was without a host this year after Kevin Hart backed out of doing the job over past tweets that were deemed homophobic. So instead, the night kicked off with the hit song by Queen, “We Will Rock You,” sung by Adam Lambert.
