In a significant surprise, Emma Stone secured the Best Actress (Musical or Comedy) award, triumphing over Margot Robbie in "Barbie."

With notable appearances in Nolan's previous films such as 'Inception,' 'Batman Begins,' 'The Dark Knight,' 'The Dark Knight Rises,' and 'Dunkirk,' Murphy has been a consistent presence in the director's projects.

The ensemble cast includes Rami Malek, Kenneth Branagh, Benny Safdie, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, Josh Peck, Jason Clarke, David Dastmalchian, Alex Wolff, James D'Arcy, among others. Florence Pugh takes on the role of Jean Tatlock, Emily Blunt as Kitty Oppenheimer, Robert Downey Jr. as Lewis Strauss, and Matt Damon also stars in the film. Released on July 21, the biopic features a star-studded cast.
