The actor, who has had quite a successful career in Hollywood, was taken aback by the honor. During his speech, the actor struggled to hold back tears.

“This movie, The Whale, it’s about love, it’s about redemption. It’s about finding the light in a dark place and I’m so lucky to have worked with an ensemble that is incredible.”

“Darren Aronofsky, I was in the wilderness, and I probably should have left a trail of breadcrumbs, but you’ve found me,” he noted. “And like all the best directors, you merely just showed me where to go to get to where I needed to be.”

He went on to close his speech, saying, “If you, like a guy like Charlie, who I played in this movie, in any way, struggle with obesity, or you just feel like you’re in a dark sea. I want you to know that if you too, can have the strength to just get to your feet and go to the light. Good things will happen.”

The Critics’ Choice Awards, which are presented annually by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, are widely considered to be one of the most prestigious awards in the entertainment industry. Fraser’s win is a testament to his talent and dedication as an actor.
