Fans Furious As Chadwick Boseman Shockingly Snubbed at 2021 Oscars

Anthony Hopkins on Sunday won the Oscar for best actor for his acclaimed role as a dementia patient in the film “The Father.”
Hopkins, who at 83 is the oldest actor to win a competitive Oscar, bested the late Chadwick Boseman, whose poignant role in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” had won him praise and a Golden Globe just months after he died of cancer at age 43.

Many thought the ceremony’s producers were purposely saving Best Actor as the last category, with the assumption that Chadwick Boseman would receive a posthumous win for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

But in a move, many are calling an upset, Anthony Hopkins who was absent was awarded his second Oscar over nominees Gary Oldman (Mank), Steven Yeun (Minari), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal), and Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom).

Many fans took to Twitter to express their anger and sadness over the “Black Panther” star’s shocking loss.
