Following His Best Actor Win Best actor winner, Rami Malek took a tumble, off the Dolby Theater stage. Malek had already received his Academy Award.
The ceremony was over; and, he took a seat in the front row, as paramedics tended to him. Unfortunately, Malek didn’t get to capture his Oscar win in a photo, with fellow winners, Regina King, Mahershala Ali and Olivia Coleman – because he was treated for possible injuries, backstage.
Malek’s acceptance speech was dedicated to immigrants, and people who struggle with their identity, “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.”
