They may want to consider a reshoot of the ending.
Chadwick Boseman had been heavily favored to win in the best actor category for his role as a troubled trumpet player in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”
The Oscar instead went to Sir Anthony Hopkins for his performance as a man battling dementia in the film, “The Father.”
Had he won posthumously, it would have been Boseman’s first and last acting Oscar as the film was his final on-screen work.
Other award shows had already recognized his performance.
The star also won a Golden Globe, a Critic’s Choice Award and an NAACP Image Award for the role.
And while Hopkins at 83 years young is now the oldest performer to win an Oscar in an acting category, his triumph landed with a resounding thud on social media given the love for Boseman and the hope that he would be honored.
