THE 2021 Oscars ceremony left fans "in shock" after Chadwick Boseman was “robbed” from his win as best actor as Anthony Hopkins scored the trophy.
Viewers of the 93rd annual Academy Awards claimed the late actor "deserved" to win for his role as Levee in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom at the prestigious ceremony.
Chadwick – who tragically passed away from cancer in August 2020 – was favored to win the Best Actor in a Leading Role category for playing Levee in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
However, months after his tragic death, he was beat out by sir Anthony Hopkins – who played a pope in The Father.
Anthony, 83, has been nominated SIX times and scored his second trophy tonight – although he did not attend the ceremony so presenter Joaquin Phoenix accepted on his behalf.
Fans were furious The Black Panther star lost out for his last role before his death as Levee in the film.
One person tweeted: “I can’t get over how anticlimactic that was. Just an absolute miss by the producers.
“They changed the entire format of the show so the end would be a big emotional finale celebrating Chadwick Boseman and then Anthony Hopkins, who wasn’t even there, won. I’m still in shock.”
“As much as i love Anthony Hopkins. I feel my boy Chadwick Boseman was robbed just now,” another mentioned.
A third said: "Chadwick Boseman gave the performance of his career as Levee Green. You could see that he was pushing to do something truly memorable. Almost like he knew it was his last.
“Should he have won at the Oscars? 100%. But nothing changes that mans impact in film history.”
The movie legend showed off her rear as she shook and swiveled her butt as the entire venue cheered her on.
Wearing a floor-length sparkling navy gown, Glenn showed age is just a number as she danced her way to an iconic Oscars moment.
She did the moves to Da Butt – which has become a trend on social media.
Glenn was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for starring in Hillbilly Elegy.
Other big moments of the night included Frances McDormand who scored her FOURTH Academy Award tonight.
The acclaimed actress won for her starring role in Nomadland – though many fans were furious Viola Davis did not score the honor.
Tonight’s biggest award, Best Picture, was between eight incredible films.
Judas and the Black Messiah, Mank, Minari, The Father, Promising Young Woman, Sound of Metal Nomadland and The Trial of the Chicago 7.
Nomadland took home yet another trophy, with director Chloé Zhao and star Frances accepting the honor.
Earlier in the evening, Oscar winner Viola Davis presented Tyler Perry with tonight’s special Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.
Viola noted how the entertainment mogul provided ALL of his staffers with the Covid vaccine as well as helping those facing hardships throughout this past year.
Tyler, 51, used his speech to spotlight the increase in “hate” that’s occurring throughout the country.
Just before his big award, Brad Pitt stunned viewers and audience members alike as he took the stage to present the award for Best Supporting Actress.
Before Brad, 57, even said a word, he received a standing ovation from his A-list peers.
He went on to hand out the Best Supporting Actress trophy, which Minari star Yuh-Jung Youn took home.
The adorable 73-year-old immediately began FLIRTING with Brad on stage, as she called him "extremely handsome.”
"Where were you when we were filming in person?" she cheekily asked.
She then went on to correct him for mispronouncing her name, but added that she has "already forgiven" the heartthrob.
In one of the first awards of the evening for Best Supporting Actor, Daniel Kaluuya was favored to win for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah.
Get Out and Black Panther star Daniel took home the trophy and gave an emotional yet hilarious speech.
As he thanked God, his team and his family, he oddly mentioned that he is grateful that his “mom and dad had sex" – resulting in him "being alive" right now.
The audience appeared confused – as there was an awkward silence before the actor resumed his winners speech.
While his mom and sister appeared mortified, burying their hands in their face.
Regina King kicked off the evening with a dramatic entrance as she walked throughout Union Station – where some of the show is filmed along with taping at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
As she made the long stride to the stage, she tripped in her high heels when walked up the steps.
“Ha, live TV,” she laughed after the brief blunder.
