37-year-old Rami Malek - who picked up the prestigious accolade on Sunday (24.02.19) for his performance of late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in 'Bohemian Rhapsody' - tumbled off the stage at Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre and into the audience area after the ceremony concluded.
According to People magazine, Rami did his best to hold his statue aloft and appeared surprised as he hit the ground before being helped up by those around him.
Paramedics were then called to treat the 'Mr. Robot' star, who was initially taken to a chair in the front row and then moved to a more private area backstage.
A spokesperson for the actor has yet to comment so it is unknown if he sustained any injuries in the fall.
Rami gave a passionate speech about finding his identity as he picked up the Best Actor Oscar on Sunday (Feb 24).
He admitted his younger self would have had his "mind blown" if he'd realised he would one day be picking up the coveted statuette and hoped the movie would pave the way for more stories about proud outsiders.
He said: "I think about what it would have been like to tell little bubba Rami that one day this might happen to him and I think his curly-haired little mind would be blown.
"That kid was struggling with his identity, and I think anyone struggling with theirs and trying to find their voice, a film about a gay man an immigrant who lived his life unapologetically and the fact I'm celebrating him and his story is proof we are longing for stories like this.
