    Cillian Murphy and Emma Stone win big

    It is Cillian Murphy who took home the Best Actor Award in the Motion Picture, Drama category for his stellar performance in Oppenheimer. He gave a shoutout to director Christopher Nolan in a rather humorous way while receiving the award. Murphy said, “I knew the first time I walked on a Christopher Nolan set that it was different. I could tell by the level of rigor, the level of focus, the level of dedication, and the complete lack of any seating options for actors. That I was in the hands of the visionary director and master.”

    In the Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy category, it was the talented Emma Stone who won big for Poor Things. The movie marked a unique take on Frankenstein. Though the movie could not do wonders at the box office, Stone did full justice to her role.
