Fans can’t get over one word Cillian Murphy keeps using in award acceptance speeches

Fans can’t get over one word Cillian Murphy keeps using in award acceptance speeches

The Oppenheimer actor loves to heap praise on his co-stars during his speeches.

Cillian Murphy is cleaning up at award shows this year, so he's had to have quite a few acceptance speeches on hand.

Although each one varies, the sentiment remains the same - and the Oppenheimer star, 47, has also kept one running theme going throughout his monologues.

Things weren't any different on Saturday at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, as he kept the gag going when he headed on stage to collect his award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.

Murphy's work on Christopher Nolan's biographical thriller - which is centred around American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and the creation of the first atomic bomb - has earned him plenty of accolades so far throughout the award season, including at the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and the AACTA International Awards.

He's going to need to make a fair bit of room on his mantlepiece.

Despite the fact we are all buzzing to see him get the recognition he deserves, we all know that the Peaky Blinders actor is more modest than most.

Murphy cleaned up again at the SAG Awards.

So during his various speeches, he has taken the opportunity to thank and praise his co-stars, production and every member of the team who worked so hard on Oppenheimer.

But Murphy would be there all day if he personally listed everyone, so he has a special phrase that he uses while referring to his pals on set - 'Oppenhomies'.

It's also the name of the all-star cast's group chat, which was created by actor Jack Quaid who starred as Richard Feynman in the three hour film.

While picking up his SAG award last night, Murphy said: "Oh my goodness. This is extremely, extremely special to me, because it comes from you guys.

"My Oppenheimer crew, my Oppenheimer family...just an FYI on the exquisite moniker, 'Oppenhomies'.

"That was actually invented by the great Olivia Thirlby, so Olivia, I think you should immediately trademark that and start merching the s**t out of it, because someone else will.

"Seriously, they were the greatest group of actors I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I've never felt so looked after, or cared for by a group of actors.

"Everyday, looking at your names on the call sheet just made me brave, guys. So thank you, thank you, thank you."

Thirlby, who he credited with coining the nickname, played Czech-American scientist Lilli Hornig in Oppenheimer alongside the actor as well as Robert Downey Jr, Florence Pugh, Emily Blunt, Josh Hartnett and Matt Damon.

Murphy first used the brilliant phrase she came up with during his acceptance speech for Best Actor at the BAFTAs and fans heaped praise on him on social media for utilising the witty play on words.

One said: "So happy for Cillian Murphy and the Oppenhomies!"

Another wrote: "One thing about Cillian is he WILL reference the Oppenhomies in an acceptance speech."

A third added: "Hearing Cillian say Oppenhomies always tickles me lol."

A fourth commented: "Cillian's right, Oppenhomies needs to be merched tf out!"

Oppenheimer also scooped the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, while Downey Jr bagged best supporting actor at the SAG Awards.
