      Traditionally, the Best Picture award is announced at the end of the Academy Awards ceremony but this year, the producers decided to announce the Best Actor as the last category. After building the anticipation for the final award of the night, fans were highly disappointed when Anthony Hopkins was announced as the winner.

      Veteran actor Anthony Hopkins won the Best Actor award at Oscars 2021, among other nominees like Gary Oldman for Mank, Riz Ahmed for Sound of Metal, Steven Yeun for Minari, and Chadwick Boseman for Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

      The award presenter- last year's winner Joaquin Phoenix (Joker) ended up accepting the honour as Hopkins was not present at the ceremony. This was his second award after receiving an Oscar for Best Actor back in 1992 for The Silence of the Lambs.
