Fitting, given the year that's in it.

Bohemian Rhapsody was undeniably one of the biggest movies of 2018.

It has made over $844 million at the box office, and picked up massive wins at the Golden Globes at the BAFTAs.

So it's a fairly reasonable assumption to make that the Queen biopic is going to do fairly well at 2019's Academy Awards.

And even if it doesn't, Queen are going to have a part to play in the ceremony one way or another.

That's because the legendary band will perform at the event, alongside Adam Lambert, who will sing lead vocals in place of Freddie Mercury.

The official Academy account announced the news on Twitter, alongside a video of the band and Lambert performing 'We Will Rock You'.

This 2019 Oscars has been surrounded with controversy and confusion for months now.

Most recently, the Academy announced that some of the biggest awards - Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Live Action Short, and Best Hair & Make-up - wouldn't be shown live during the ceremony.

There was an immediate response,  from within Hollywood, as everyone from Brad Pitt to Martin Scorsese to Emma Stone to Alfonso Cuaron added their names to a list of famous industry folk who were staunchly against the removal of these four awards from the live ceremony.

The Academy then stated "All Academy Awards will be presented without edits, in our traditional format. We look forward to Oscar Sunday, February 24".

Roll on next weekend...
