Oppenheimer became an enormous smash because of its compelling narrative, director, cinematography, music, and acting. Additionally, Cillian and RDJ went on to win other significant honors this year, including Oscars. The actors from Batman Begins, however, are still receiving honors.

During the 21st Irish Film and TV Academy Awards, Cillian Murphy was just given the Best Lead Actor award for Oppenheimer. Feeling content, the Irish actor spoke tenderly about feeling like “home.” “Being in this room is so special—being at home, with people that I love and admire among my fellow nominees and some of my favorite people,” Cillian remarked in his remarks, as Variety noted.
