Oscar 2021: Why was the Best Actor award left to end? Understand!

Why didn’t the Oscar end with the announcement of the best picture as usual?

This is the question the public asked themselves last night (25), when Anthony Hopkins was chosen as the best actor for his performance in “My Father”.

Contrary to the tradition of previous years, the ceremony has seen some changes in the order of the awards.

However, the decision to replace the main prize with the revelation for the best actor was not very well accepted by the public.

Most spectators found it opportunistic to leave the prize for last, saying organizers had taken advantage of the expectations of Chadwick Boseman supporters who believed in his posthumous victory.

According to Variety, producers Steven Soderbergh, Stacey Sher and Jesse Collins bet on the decision because they wanted to surprise audiences …

This is also the opinion of Rob Mills, executive vice president of alternative and improvised entertainment at Walt Disney Television.

In an interview with the portal, he said that:

“It was great to do something different and not know what was going to happen next – and not have those glassy eyes of ‘God, I knew exactly what was going to happen.’

He continued:

“The point is, sometimes you watch the event thinking, ‘Wow, every year is the same. “This time people spoke up and said, ‘Wow, I really don’t know what’s coming next.’ The important thing was that everyone was talking about it. Some people were upset, some people were upset. loved it, and that’s how you know when your idea works. ”

Another drastic change was the opening, since the ceremony didn’t start with the typical jokes to relax the guests.

Instead, the jokes gave way to the hard-hitting speech by Regina King, Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress in 2019 for “ If Beale Street Could Talk. ”

King, director of “A Night in Miami,” stressed the importance of anti-racist policies in the United States and referred to the death of George Floyd, a black man who was murdered by a white policeman last year.

For Mills, the producers felt that a traditional monologue filled with jokes wouldn’t be an appropriate way to open this year’s Oscar.

“I think there was a dispute over whether to repeat a traditional presentation because we’re still in the middle of a pandemic … Especially in this one which was the toughest Oscar in history. “, explained Mills.

the 93rd edition was so far away that it even had a comedic performance of the “butt dance” promoted by the famous Glenn Close (“Once Upon a Dream”), nominated in the category Best Supporting Actress.
