Was Cillian Murphy’s Golden Globe Speech Censored?! Oppenheimer Star Reveals Behind The Scenes Secrets!

MOVIE NEWS – Oppenheimer actor Cillian Murphy has apparently confirmed, among other things, that Christopher Nolan does not keep chairs on the set…



Cillian Murphy isn’t done dropping bombs – I mean his Irish “F-bombs!” The actor won the Best Actor in a Drama award at the Golden Globes on Sunday for his performance in Oppenheimer. Viewers at home missed a crucial part of his speech due to censored profanity. “I’m the luckiest fecking man alive,” he said in a line from his speech that did not air.

The Oppenheimer nomination marks Murphy’s first win and second Globe nomination, following his 2005 nomination for Breakfast on Pluto.

When accepting the award, the actor also praised his old colleague Christopher Nolan (who won the Globe for best director). “I knew the first time I walked on a Christopher Nolan set that it was different,” he said. “I could tell by the level of rigor, the level of focus, the level of dedication, the complete lack of any seating options for actors that I was in the hands of the visionary director and master.”

The latter comment seemed to confirm (jokingly or seriously) Anne Hathaway’s claim that the director does not allow chairs on the set.

Later in his speech, Murphy said: “I want to thank Chris and Emma [Thomas] for having the faith in me for 20 years. Thanks so much.” He also shouted out his co-stars: “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. Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Gary Oldman. Thank you for carrying me and holding me through this movie.”

Murphy’s co-star Robert Downey Jr. won Best Supporting Actor earlier in the evening. Downey has previously won three Globes – one in 2004 as an ensemble member of Short Cuts, one for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie for Ally McBeal in 2001, and a third in 2010 for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture musical or comedy – for Sherlock Holmes.
