Irish actor Cillian Murphy set to make history as he lands Oscar nomination for Oppenheimer

Cillian Murphy has received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in Oppenheimer.

The Irish actor has won critical acclaim for his role as Robert J. Oppenheimer in Christopher Nolan’s biopic about the nuclear physicist.

The Cork native is now being tipped to make history as the first Irish-born actor to ever claim the award.

After his Best Actor win at the Golden Globe Awards on January 8th, Cillian is seen as the favourite to bag the award on March 10th.

The 47-year-old was previously nominated for the same award in 2006 for his role as Patrick in Breakfast on Pluto, but lost out to Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Cillian will go up against Bradley Cooper, Colman Domingo, Paul Giamatti and Jeffrey Wright, who are also nominated in the same category.

The others have been nominated for their respective roles in Maestro, Rustin, The Holdovers and American Fiction.

Oppenheimer led the field in this year’s Academy Awards, taking home 13 Oscar nominations.

Cillian’s co-stars Emily Blunt and Robert Downey Jr were also nominated for acting prizes, as well as Christopher Nolan for Best Director.

Falling behind Oppenheimer is the Irish-produced film Poor Things with 11 nominations, Killers of the Flower Moon with 10 nominations, and Barbie with 8 nominations.

The nominations for the 96th Academy Awards were announced today.

The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 10th, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
