Cillian Murphy amazed by his Oscar for Best Actor for Oppenheimer

“I’m a little in shock,” he admitted as he took the stage at the Dolby Theater.

It was for him this year, but that didn't stop him from being surprised. After winning the Golden Globe, the BAFTA for the SAG Award for Best Actor in recent weeks, for his incarnation of J. Robert Oppenheimer in the biopic of Christopher Nolan, Cillian Murphy won the statuette last night during the Oscars 2024. He was crowned Best Actor ahead of Paul Giamatti, considered his main rival (for Winter Break).

This is the first Oscar for the 47-year-old Irish actor, revealed in 28 days later And Batman Begins and became a star thanks to the series Peaky Blinders.

When he took the stage at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles last night, after his name was mentioned by Brendan Fraser (winner last year for The Whale), Cillian Murphy said he was “in shock” and appeared amazed by a success that had been written for a long time. And he first particularly thanked Christopher Nolan and his wife, Emma Thomas, who have had the actor in films for two decades:

“I'm a little overwhelmed… Thank you to the Academy, Chris Nolan and producer Emma Thomas. You have taken me on the craziest, most exhilarating and most creative journey in the last 20 years. I owe you more than I can say. Thank you to every member of the team, every member of the Oppenheimer cast, you supported me. All my fellow nominees, I remain in awe of you guys. Truly. .. I am a very proud Irishman standing here tonight. We made a film about the man who created the atomic bomb and, for better or worse, we all live in Oppenheimer's world, so I would really like to dedicate this Oscar to peacemakers around the world.”
