The 93rd Academy Awards were held on April 25, 2021, and as always, it was a star-studded evening. Despite going through several changes this year owing to the pandemic, the prestigious ceremony was held with equal fervour as they celebrated the best of cinema. Among the big winners of the night was Chloe Zhao's Nomadland which bagged the Best Director, Best Picture and Best Actress honour. One of the biggest honours of the evening, the Best Actor honour was bagged by actor Anthony Hopkins for his performance in The Father.

Anthony Hopkins was competing along with the likes of late actor Chadwick Boseman for Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Riz Ahmed for The Sound of Metal, Steven Yeun for Minari and Gary Oldman for Mank. In the award season that started off with the Golden Globes, actor Chadwick Boseman had swept almost all the major honours that were presented posthumously to him.  Boseman's Oscars loss was taken as a disappointment by netizens, who declared him a winner.

Netizens were quick to respond about Boseman's loss on Twitter as users called the Ma Rainey's Black Bottom star the "real winner" and considered his swansong, deserving for the prestigious award. Chadwick Boseman tragically died in August 2020 after a two-year battle with Cancer.
