Twitter and celebrities feel like the Academy got it wrong in overlooking Chadwick Boseman‘s performance. The late actor was believed to be a shoe-in to win Best Actor for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, but Anthony Hopkins won instead for The Father.
TMZ asked The United States Vs. Billie Holiday star Andra Day, Evan Ross and Minnie Harlow if he was snubbed, and they said “he was.”
Boseman’s family is cool with it though. His brother Derrick Boseman told TMZ that he doesn’t see the loss as a snub, adding that he wishes all the best for Hopkins because “I’m sure Anthony would if Chad won.”
