The 37-year-old Bohemian Rhapsody star was caught on camera having an awkward and very relatable moment with veteran actress Nicole Kidman.
Kidman, 51, presented the Bohemian Rhapsody cast with the Best Picture – Drama award at the annual event. When everyone was walking off-stage, fans quickly spotted Malek reaching out to speak to Kidman, even placing his hand momentarily on her back, before smiling and giving up as she walked away without noticing him.
Regardless, it was a big night for the actor! Earlier in the evening, Malek picked up the Best Actor award for his turn as the late Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic.
“I am so lucky to get to do what I do day in and day out and this is icing on top of that massive cake for me,” Malek told ET’s Nancy O’Dell of his trophy after his big win.
He also quipped that he didn’t “remember a single word” from his acceptance speech.
