Chadwick Boseman’s family recently spoke out about the upset at the 93rd Academy Awards Sunday night when the late actor did not win the award for Best Actor, losing to Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Boseman’s brother, Derrick Boseman, told TMZ that the actor’s family was not upset that the award didn’t go to Boseman and said that he doesn’t see it as a snub due to the fact that all of the nominated actors were excellent and deserved to win. Derrick told the outlet that the family wishes Hopkins and his family all the best because, as he said, “I”m sure [Anthony] would if Chad won.”
Derrick added that his brother did not put too much value on the Oscars awards, saying that Chadwick “always described them to me as a campaign.” Regardless, Derrick said that an Oscar would have been an accomplishment, but was not an obsession.
At age 83, Hopkins bested actor Christopher Plummer’s 2010 win for “Beginners” by
