Mamma Mia, indeed! The 2018 Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has earned five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture.

The film, which has crossed the $800 million mark at the worldwide box office, also earned nominations for Lead Actor (Rami Malek), Film Editing, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing.

After becoming the highest-grossing music biopic (surpassing 2015’s Straight Outta Compton), the movie will be rereleased in select theatres as a singalong version.

Malek has already won the Golden Globe for Best Actor – Drama, and the movie took home the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Drama.

The movie highlights Queen’s origins as well as the band’s rise to stardom, with Malek starring as the late frontman Freddie Mercury.

Other notable musical nominations include Lady Gaga, who is up for Lead Actress for her starring turn in A Star Is Born.

Watch the trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody below. The Academy Awards will air live on Feb. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.
