I told you this morning Anthony Hopkins wasn’t coming to the Oscars,
He won anyway.
But as I reported this morning he was in Wales, where he’s been on holiday. This morning he visited his father’s grave.
He’s been blissfully oblivious to the Oscars.
Everyone thought Chadwick Boseman would win posthumously for “Ma Rainey.” But in the, Hopkins’ tour de force performance was too much to overcome. Boseman will always be remembered in this highest regard.
The Oscar producers assumed Boseman would win, and changed the order of the show. They made Best Actor last , hoping to get a huge standing ovation for the late actor. But it backfired. And the final award had no winner present.
Next year, back to the old order, please.
Richard Hopkins, my beloved father, resting in eternal peace… 🏴
