Cillian Murphy secures the prestigious Best Actor award at the 96th Academy Awards for his portrayal of nuclear physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer in Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer.”

This win marks Murphy’s debut Oscar nomination, yet he emerges as a frontrunner following notable victories at the Baftas and Screen Actors Guild Awards for the same role. Additionally, he claims the Best Actor (Drama) title at the Golden Globes.
