Last night, the SAG Awards shone brightly for Cillian Murphy, the talented actor from the show “Oppenheimer”. He graciously accepted the award for his remarkable performance by a male actor in a leading role at the 2024 SAG Awards.

Colman Domingo for his portrayal in “Rustin”. Paul Giamatti for his character in “The Holdovers”. Jeffrey Wright for his compelling performance in “American Fiction”

“Oh my goodness,Cillian Murphy began his voice filled with emotion. “This is extremely, extremely special to me, because it comes from you guys.”

“Okay, my Oppenheimer crew, my Oppenheimer family. Just an FYI on that exquisite moniker ‘Oppenhomies,’” Murphy added. “That was actually invented by the great Olivia Thirlby. So, Olivia, I think you should immediately trademark that and start merching the s— out of it because someone else will. Seriously, they were the greatest group of actors I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.”

Murphy continued, “I have never felt so looked after or cared for by a group of actors every day. Looking at your names on the call sheet, just made me brave guys. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

He turned to his fellow nominees and expressed his genuine feelings saying, “I am just bursting with admiration and respect for you all.”

“Chris Nolan and Emma Thomas, as always such a debt of gratitude to you. To my wife, Yvonne and my boys, Malachy and Aran, I adore you,” he declared.

“Twenty-eight years ago when I was trying to become an actor, I was a failed musician and I felt extremely like an interloper. But now looking out and all of you guys here today, I know that I’m part of something truly wonderful. So thank you so much.” he concluded.

The film “Oppenheimer” has garnered immense acclaim, boasting several award-winning performances. Among these, Cillian Murphy, 47, stands out as the central figure. In the movie, he embodies the role of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the brilliant mind behind the development of the atomic bomb during World War II.

Murphy’s portrayal of Oppenheimer’s internal struggles and ethical dilemmas has resonated deeply with audiences and critics alike. His exceptional talent earned him prestigious accolades at the Golden Globes and BAFTAs. Additionally, he received recognition at the Critics Choice Awards and is now a Best Actor nominee for the upcoming Oscars.

In an interview with PEOPLE, Robert Downey Jr., who co-stars in the film as Atomic Energy Commission chairman Lewis Strauss, expressed his admiration for Murphy. Downey remarked, “I have never witnessed a greater sacrifice by a lead actor in my career.” He praised Murphy’s unwavering “commitment” to the monumental task of leading Christopher Nolan’s epic three-hour cinematic journey.

Robert Downey Jr., reflecting on Cillian Murphy’s monumental task, acknowledged that “He knew it was going to be a behemoth ask when Chris called him. But I think he also had the humility that is required to survive playing a role like this.”

Nolan’s cinematic masterpiece, “Oppenheimer”, stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Barbie in terms of SAG nominations this year, both securing four nods. Notably, Robert Downey Jr. and Emily Blunt received well-deserved recognition for their supporting roles, while the ensemble cast is in the running for outstanding performance.
