Cillian Murphy celebrated his Oscar nomination with a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
The 47-year-old star has received his first Academy Awards recognition for his portrayal of J. Robert Oppenheimer in 'Oppenheimer' and when he got the news, he enjoyed a low-key moment to toast the news with his parents and his wife Yvonne McGuinness.
He told Variety: "Thankfully, I live in a time zone that I don’t have to get up at 5 am. It was already organised for me.
"We’ve had a few days off and I’ve been at home, which has been very, very pleasant.
"I’m actually in my parents’ house in Cork city. I was with my parents and my wife today. So that was really nice.
“We had a cup of tea and a slice of cake. It was quite nice. My mum made a sponge cake. It was very tasty.”
Cillian joked he will be asking his mother to bake more cake ahead of the Oscars ceremony on 10 March.
Asked if he will take a snack because there is no meal served at the event, he said: "Maybe I’ll bring some of mum’s sponge cake in my wife’s handbag."
