So many racist people wanted someone else to win based off skin color. The racist left hates straight white men that succeed.

Not skin color, rather because Chadwick passed away. I don’t agree with them, but that’s the main reason.

You are all a bunch of sensationalist babies. I know that gossip and celebrity culture might even be intrinsic to our society, but whenever I stumble upon it, it leaves me with a horrible taste in my mouth. I can't believe people take this as seriously as they do. There were two possible outcomes. 1) Hopkins wins, and if his performance is indeed better than Chadwick's, then the Oscars would be attempting to actually do what they set out to do in the first place, which is to recognize excelence, and lose the chance to weaponize their platform to further their current marketing campaign. 2) Chadwick wins, and if his performance is better, refer to number 1), if his performance is worse then all you have is the Oscars showing themselves as the faux political weapon that they actually are. And I say "faux" because I strongly believe that the main reason the Oscars have this behavior, is to keep the money coming and to stay culturally relevant. At least get a host next time so we can get the cringe factor a little closer to the goal.

Calling an Anthony Hopkins win the worst thing to ever happen at the Oscars ... It's so evident that some people are completely disinterested in the art of performance but rather interested in their own performance towards the general public.

Why would they be shocked? Not because Chadwick died doesn't mean the person with the best performance won't win. Even Chadwick wouldn't want that. Many people said Sir Anthony Hopkins deserved it. I don't like it when the media say people were "outraged".

It's a shame that ALL of the performances for Lead Actor were overshadowed by The Academy's own incompetency. It felt like The Academy ignored the genuinely brilliant performances from Steven, Riz, and Gary, intentionally reorganized the ceremony to celebrate Chadwick's performance (despite rushing the In Memoriam section), and tried to throw Sir Anthony Hopkins under the bus when, in reality, it's their own rules (i.e: not allowing oversea nominees to make a speech via. Zoom) and setup that are at fault. Congrats to Sir Anthony Hopkins on his win!

This movie was incredible......this movie should be seen by everybody to see how this heartbreaking disease affects the patient and the family. It is heartbreaking....Anthony Hopkins has a body of real work....sorry this young man died, but that doesn’t make him deserve it,....oh, so the disease, Alzheimer’s dementia is not touching or heartbreaking....all these ignorant young people should get off their racist horse, and recognize what Anthony Hopkins has brought to the general public. Give him credit with Grace...they are all behaving like Trump when he didn’t win.....these are supposed to be actors on their ability...i as a 24/7 caregiver to my brilliant husband, suffering from this heartbreaking disease was sobbing through this movie, seeing what I go through, ...I am shocked that these other actors showed the lack of class and not recognize what an amazing role he played......why......yes..they all behave like trump after the election, saying Joe stole the election...shameful.

What garbage. It didn't spark any controversy, almost everyone who had seen Anthony Hopkins' heartbreaking performance in 'The Father' had fallen for him. A few people citing their opinion does not make it a controversy, Twitter would have erupted with fans and critics alike even if the late Chadwick Boseman had won (may his soul rest in peace). Also, almost every other winner goes on stage and says, "I didn't expect to win it this year" and even Sir Hopkins were being humble when he said so. I might have been a close contest between Anthony Sir and Mr. Boseman in the end but everyone unanimously loved Anthony Sir and I see no problem with his win.

If you're upset by Anthony Hopkins' Oscar win, you know NOTHING about acting and you know even less about good movies. Chadwick Boseman's legacy is secure and he will be remembered forever. Hopkins simply gave the better performance and if you can't handle it, then don't watch the Oscars. You don't give an Oscar to someone just because they died. You give it to the best performance. My mother died from dementia after a 14 year struggle with the disease. Hopkins nailed the role perfectly and I saw so many things displayed by him that a dementia patient suffers from. Boseman won the Screen Actors Guild Award which many say is MORE prestigious than the Oscar.

Most of the world had either forgotten about the Oscars ceremony or had simply given up on sanctimonious celebrities who fly in on private jets to lecture everyone else on reducing their carbon footprint. Even Anthony Hopkins spent that night having a good sleep in his bed. Tells you everything you need to know.
