Another highlight of the night came in the form of Wayne's World reuniting to introduce the Bohemian Rhapsody film.

Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, who played the titular Wayne and his best friend Garth, reprised their famous roles on stage at the Academy Awards, where they brought back their iconic lines including: "We are not worthy! We are not worthy!".

The film is most know for its famous car scene, where Wayne and Garth head-bang along to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody single in a car.
