In related news, Briefly News reported that fans of late actor Chadwick Boseman have been displeased by his snub at the 93rd Oscar Awards show. This comes after 83-year-old legendary actor Anthony Hopkins was awarded an Oscar for Best Actor in the movie The Father.

Many expected that Boseman would outrightly be the winner for his last film Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, in which he took part while suffering from cancer.

The award was given at the end of the show, which seemed befitting for a star who gave his all to film, hence closing the night.

However, when it turned out the winner was Hopkins, fans immediately went on Twitter to air their frustrations at Boseman being 'robbed'.

One tweep noted that the issue was not Boseman failing to win but how the Academy used his image to boost views, switched the categories, and even made it seem like he was to win, only for them to go another route.
