BEST ACTOR

The biggest surprise of the night was in the Best Actor category. You could have staked your house on Chadwick Boseman taking home the award. Instead, Sir Anthony Hopkins took the award. The actor himself wasn’t at the ceremony, instead, he was at home in Wales. Asleep. But the 83-year old is the oldest winner of the big acting prize so we can forgive him.

CEREMONY

Of course, this year was a strange affair. No host, the musical numbers were pre-recorded and the various locations that held the ceremony. To be honest, you could call it boring. But that’s this year. After the pandemic, it is amazing we had the Oscars at all. But those in attendance did get to see actress Glenn Close twerk live on TV. And Best Supporting Actress winner Youn Yuh-Jung fawn over Brad Pitt.

Oscars winners

In a rather muted Academy Awards, there were few highlights. But ultimately, the big spectacle was reduced to almost nothing. And in that regard, COVID was the biggest winner of them all on Hollywood’s big night.
