Lenny Abrahamson has revealed that he won’t have an Oscar winning speech prepared for Sunday night.
The Dubliner was honoured at the Oscar Wilde Awards, which celebrates Irish and honorary Irish talent in film over in the US, and admitted that he isn’t quite prepared to take home an Academy Award.
When asked if he’ll have a speech ready for Sunday night, he said: “No. I should probably, in the unlikely event.
“I should do that and send in the thank-you list because they run them along the screen.

“I don’t think I will have to use it but I don’t want to be the one person who goes up and says he was so shocked he didn’t write anything,” he told the Press Association.
Lenny’s latest film Room is nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Picture, and he admitted that he’s worried what life will be like once the Oscar buzz has worn off.
“I’m worried what’s going to happen when it’s over, like when you study really hard and then collapse after the exam, but I’m starting something else immediately after,” he explained.
