After securing a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, a Critics’ Choice Award, Oppenheimer even went on to register a Grammy on its name for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media. Christopher Nolan honored Cillian Murphy in his acceptance speech during the DGA Awards. He said-

“I can’t believe its 20 years since we started on this journey together, which means it’s about 15 years since I woke up a little hungover and said to [my wife] Emma, ‘Did I go up to Cillian last night and say, You’re the best actor ever?’ The DGA awards are such a special event, I think not least because uniquely this event acknowledges and understands that nobody gets up here on their own.”

Cillian Murphy Has A Fantastic Business Idea For His Oppenheimer Co-star

Cillian Murphy introduced a business idea while giving his acceptance speech during the SAG Awards. While talking about Olivia Thirlby, the mastermind behind the nickname Oppenhomies, the Peaky Blinders actor said-

“Oh, my goodness. 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, 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.”

“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.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.”

Christopher Nolan’s biographical saga has left behind Greta Gerwig’s fantasy doll drama. Barbie easily made its way to the billion-dollar club within the first few months of its release but stands nowhere close to Oppenheimer during the awards season.
