On Sunday, the Red Eye actor earned his first Academy Award for best actor thanks to his performance as J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb, in the best director winner Christopher Nolan-directed biopic.

In his acceptance speech, Murphy thanked Nolan, 53, the Academy and more, explaining he felt "a little overwhelmed" at the honor.

"It's been the wildest, most exhilarating, most creatively satisfying journey you've taken me on over the last 20 years. I owe you more than I can say," he continued. "Thank you so much [to] 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. Truly."

Murphy then shared his gratitude for his "incredible team" and his family, including wife of nearly 20 years Yvonne McGuinness and their sons Malachy, 18, and Aran, 16, who were in the audience. "I love you so much, and I'm a very proud Irish man standing here tonight," he said.

Murphy continued, "We made a film about the man who created the atomic bomb. And for better or for worse, we're all living in Oppenheimer's world, so I would really like to dedicate this to the peacemakers everywhere."
