The grandeur of the 96th Academy Awards unfolded just hours ago at the esteemed Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, with the affable Jimmy Kimmel reprising his role as the host. Amidst the dazzling spectacle, Robert Downey Jr. emerged triumphant, being honored as the Best Supporting Actor for his exceptional performance in Oppenheimer. Taking to the stage, he graciously accepted the award, delivering a heartfelt acceptance speech.

In his address, he humorously remarked, “I’d like to thank my terrible childhood and the Academy, in that order.” With heartfelt warmth, he extended gratitude to his wife Susan, jokingly stating, “I’d like to thank my veterinarian – I meant wife – Susan Downey over there. She found me, a snarling rescue pet, and loved me back to life. That’s why I am here. Thank you.”

Expressing appreciation for the entire cast and crew of Oppenheimer, Robert candidly revealed, “Here’s my little secret. I needed this job more than it needed me. Chris knew it.” Holding his trophy aloft, he descended to the floor, showering heartfelt appreciation upon his three children.

Robert’s triumph at the Oscars adds yet another feather to his illustrious cap, having previously secured the Golden Globe Award and Critics’ Choice Award for the same role. This victory marks a poignant milestone in his career, triumphing in three Oscar nominations spanning over three decades. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to him. Stay tuned as we bring you the comprehensive list of Academy Awards recipients.
