Executive producers Graham King and Jim Beach accepted the award, telling the audience what Mercury and the iconic band he fronted meant to them.

"The power of movies is that it brings us all together," King said.

"Freddie Mercury and Queen did that so successfully through their music and that's what we always wanted to accomplish in the cinemas. To see that magic come alive and to see the incredible response of this film has been truly humbling to everyone."

Rami Malek also scooped up the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

In Malek's acceptance speech, he dedicated his award to the man he played on screen, saying: "Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime. I love you, you beautiful man. This is for and because of you, gorgeous."

The 37-year-old also paid tribute to the other members of Queen - guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor - who he sat with for the ceremony, thanking them 'for ensuring that authenticity and inclusivity exists in music and in the world and all of us'.
