Cillian Murphy has dedicated his win for Oppenheimer at the 2024 Golden Globes to director Christopher Nolan.

The actor, who received the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama for his matchless performance in the historical film, praised Nolan during his acceptance speech.

"I knew the first time I walked on a Christopher Nolan set that it was different,” he said as he took to the stage to accept his award.

He further said, "The level, or rigor of the level of dedication, the complete lack of any seating options for actors, I was in the hands of a visionary director, a master."

"One of the most beautiful and vulnerable things about being an actor is that you can't do it on your own, really. We had the most incredible ensemble cast in this movie. It was magic and some of them are here today,” the Peaky Blinders star continued.

“Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Gary Oldman. Thank you for carrying me and holding me through this movie,” Cillian added.

The 27-year-old actor concluded his speech with, "I am the luckiest man and I love you. Thanks so much, guys!"

For those unversed, Oppenheimer was released in cinemas on July 21, 2023, and collected $953.8 million USD at the global box office.

The hit film is based on the inexplicable life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, a physicist who played a crucial role in the making of the atomic bomb during World War II.
