Chadwick Boseman was a big favorite for the Best Actor award at the 2021 Oscar due to his performance in ‘The Supreme Voice of the Blues’.
However, the award went to Anthony Hopkins, protagonist of the lauded drama “My Father”.
As a result, several fans have taken to social media to protest the choice, saying Boseman should be the legitimate winner of the night in honor of his latest and grand performance.
Some even said the category prize was left last just to win an audience, as organizers knew the audience expected Boseman to be chosen.
Check out the reactions:
Anthony Hopkins deserved a lot, but they missed the chance to honor Chadwick Boseman one last time, and even changed the order of performances to create expectations that he would be the winner for Best Actor. Anyway #oscars

No need to call Chadwick Boseman’s wife to suggest that a tribute would be paid to her husband. Even less change the order of awards and leave the category of best actor to the end to strengthen the idea of tribute …

I lost the urge to see the # Oscar2021 rerun without Viola Davis winning Best Actress and Chadwick Boseman being honored as he deserves.

This year it was from Chadwick Boseman, I respect Anthony Hopkins’ work and his history in the movies, but Boseman won almost everything before the Oscar (only Bafta who doesn’t), if it was to surprise and not giving the prize to Boseman, it was also a great performance for Riz Ahmed.

I don’t think Chadwick Boseman didn’t win the Oscar for Best Actor… they missed the opportunity for a perfect tribute to his legacy 🙁

Holding audiences at the Oscars was so dirty that they went down to the last category for Best Actor, knowing that people would be waiting for Chadwick Boseman to win … being traditional to finish Best Picture

Still thinking that Chadwick Boseman didn’t win the “Best Actor” award yesterday… # Oscars

Oscar for Anthony Hopkins was well deserved, but reversing the order of the awards and leaving best actor for last was awesome, everyone thought it would be for Chadwick Boseman

Chadwick Boseman not to have won a best actor is a huge injustice!

Now I’ve read that they called Chadwick Boseman’s family, changed the order of the Oscars, and put the best actor in the final and didn’t give him the award. What a fucking disrespect.
