Dear Cillian Murphy,
You are trully one of the best actors nowadays…too bad not many people see that, but I do. Congratulation for the best actor award at The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards. I know I didn’t see the play (I really really wish I could) but I am sure you are amazing there as many critics said you were.
While everyone seems to pay attention to Oscar, I have my eyes on a different award. I have shared a bit about the award on my previous Monthly Murphy. The result was announced on February 26.
I didn’t share it in my blog straight away because I want it to be in my March Monthly Murphy.
The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards for best actors, the nominees are:
- Cillian Murphy as Thomas Magill in Misterman , written and directed by Enda Walsh, produced by Landmark Productions/Galway Arts Festival

- Paul Reid in Man of Valour , written by Michael West, directed by Annie Ryan and produced by Corn Exchange Theatre Company.

And the winner is:
Cillian Murphy as Thomas Magill in Misterman , written and directed by Enda Walsh, produced by Landmark Productions/Galway Arts Festival.
