Every single crew member, every single cast member on Oppenheimer, you guys carried me through. All my fellow nominees, I remain in awe of you guys.”

The Oppenheimer actor added, “We created a film about the man who created the atomic bomb. For better or for worse, we are living in Oppenheimer’s world. So I would really like to dedicate this to the peacemakers everywhere.”
