The 59-year-old actor won the Oscar for best actor for his outstanding performance as Winston Churchill in the Second World War drama Darkest Hour.

In his speech, he recalled that “the movies, such is their power, captivated a young man from south London, and gave him a dream.”

Moreover, On his transformation that required  five hours in makeup per day, the actor said, “People would stare at me because the makeup was so good you could stand an inch from me and you couldn’t tell I was wearing any.”

Rejoicing the past moments, Oldman said, “It was fascinating to people. It was really like being the prime minister for a few months.”

Expressing his gratitude towards his mother, he said, “Put the kettle on, I’m bringing Oscar home.”
