Could anyone have imagined Chadwick Boseman being snubbed at the biggest awards night of the year after sweeping all the trophies? The ‘Black Panther’ actor did not win the posthumous Best Actor trophy as it went to British actor Anthony Hopkins. This is his second best actor Academy Award for his role in Florian Zeller’s film ‘The Father’ about a man with dementia. Back in 1994, he won for his role as Hannibal Lecter in ‘The Silence of the Lambs’.

Boseman being robbed for the award did not sit well with fans, and as expected, major outrage poured over social media. Before the Oscars, he had won Best Actor - Motion Picture Drama at the 78th Golden Globe Awards. That was followed by the late actor’s Best Actor win at the Critic’s Choice Award and second-ever NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor along with Outstanding Ensemble for ‘Ma Rainey’ and Outstanding Supporting Actor for Spike Lee’s ‘Da 5 Bloods’.

Viewers couldn't believe the disastrous ending to the night. "So suddenly they decide to put lead actor last not best picture knowing full well people will be thinking Chadwick will win, as deserved, to then rob him of his Oscar and end on someone who was not even there or giving a speech, so disrespectful, bulls**t!" one tweet read.

Another said, "I'm a little surprised, given the diversity of the winners this evening that: Nomadland won best picture & best actress (3rd Oscar for Frances McDormand)... and Chadwick Boseman didn't win best actor (Anthony Hopkins... 2nd Oscar)."



 

 



 

"F**KING BULLSHIT!!!!! I KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO PULL THAT... that’s why I tweeted the s**t. @chadwickboseman was robbed....

Boseman worked until his final days despite his illness and his cancer treatment came as a shock to many. “A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much⁣. He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side,” his family had said in a statement after his death.

According to Forbes, producers of ‘Black Panther’ had spent $200 million to make the movie and another $150 million for its publicity. And when it released in 2018, the report states that it earned  $400 million domestically in the first 10 days ― the second-fastest behind only ‘Jurassic World’. As of August 2020, his net worth, according to Celebrity Net Worth, was $12 million. According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, sources say he was paid $2 million. 

The official Academy Awards preshow, ‘Oscars: Into the Spotlight’ began airing on ABC at 6:30 pm ET. With Ariana DeBose and Lil Rel Howery as hosts, it offered a behind-the-scenes look at the big night with red carpet coverage and interviews. The main ceremony started at 8 PM ET on ABC.
