Chadwick Boseman Fans Furious on Twitter After Shocking Oscars Loss
Chadwick Boseman fans were furious after the later actor was snubbed from receiving the Best Actor award.
Typically the ceremony ends with the announcement of best picture, but this year, the award for best actor was moved to the end. The restructuring seemed to suggest that Boseman, who picked up a Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award and Critics Choice Award for his performance as Levee in "Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom," had also earned an Oscar.
Anthony Hopkins won the prestigious award for his role in the drama “The Father.”However, the 83-year-old actor was unable to attend the ceremony itself despite winning the honor, over Boseman, who passed away from cancer at 43 in August.
One fan tweeted, “Chadwick Boseman didn’t win the award for the best actor in a leading role even though he gave one of the best performances last year… #Oscars.
Another wrote, “Chadwick boseman DESERVED the best actor award. his performance as levee in ma rainey’s is the epitome of what an actor should be im so upset wtf."
One fan chimed in, “You’re telling me they ended the show with best actor that should’ve gone to Chadwick and they gave it to Anthony Hopkins WHO WASNT EVEN THERE?!?!?”
“Are you serious #Oscars ? You had one thing to do this year, which was to honor Chadwick Boseman with Best Actor. The only sure thing this year, and you gave his Best Actor trophy to Anthony Hopkins for a movie NO ONE saw.. and Hopkins didn’t even show up?! Ridiculous #Oscars2021.."
