Cillian Murphy Wins Best Actor At Golden Globes(Video Of Speech)

Share this 🍀😍

Ah, sure, Cillian Murphy(from Cork) taken home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama for his stunner of a role in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. The film itself had a grand night, sweeping up five awards, including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Original Score.

It is an absolutely fantastic film if you have yet to see it. It was so well deserved after years of amazing performances. I hope he wins that Oscar next! 

I found his acceptance speech, which you can watch here: 



Cillian was up against some top-notch talent, including our own Irish lads Barry Keoghan and Andrew Scott, but he clinched it alongside the likes of Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio in the running.

Stepping up to the stage, our Cork-born talent quipped about possibly having lipstick all over his nose before tipping his hat to the “visionary” Nolan and the amazing cast. He didn’t forget to nod to all the nominees, tipping his hat to both the Irish and the non-Irish, calling them all legends.

Murphy wrapped up by thanking his family, calling himself the “luckiest man”. It was not his first time at the rodeo, mind you; he was previously nominated in 2006 for Neil Jordan’s Breakfast on Pluto.

Andrew Scott, another gem, was among those congratulating Murphy. He’s now part of a list of Irish Golden Globe winners, standing shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Daniel Day-Lewis and Saoirse Ronan.

Emma Stone and the film Poor Things had a big win, too, with a nod to our very own Irish cinematographer Robbie Ryan.

Over in telly, Succession ruled the roost, bagging awards left, right, and centre. Aye, the Golden Globes were a night to remember, and now we’re all eyes peeled for the upcoming awards season, with the SAGs, BAFTAs, and Oscars just around the corner. Sláinte to all the winners, and here’s to another year of brilliant filmmaking!
