“I thought it would be simpler accepting for myself but as a director standing here, I suddenly realise that I can only accept this on behalf of people.

“As directors, we bring people together and try to get the regular vibe to their best,” Nolan said after he was honoured.

Receiving the award, Cillian said, “I knew the first time I walked on Chris Nolan’s set, it was different… I was in the hands of a visionary director and a master.”

Receiving the award, she said, “Playing Bella was unbelievable. I think this is a rom-com. I see this as a rom-com. But in the sense of Bella falling in love with life itself rather than a person and she accepts the good and bad in equal measure and that really makes me look at life differently.”

👏 We can’t clap loud enough! Congratulations Emma Stone on your WIN for Best Female Actor – Motion Picture – Musical/Comedy! 👏 #GoldenGlobes pic.twitter.com/swrlOLz462— Golden Globe Awards (@goldenglobes) January 8, 2024
