Anthony Hopkins honors Chadwick Boseman after Oscar win

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Anthony Hopkins has honored the late Chadwick Boseman after winning the best actor Oscar, hailing his fellow performer as a man “taken from us far too early.” The 83-year-old Hopkins took the award for his performance in “The Father,” becoming the oldest actor or actress to win an Oscar. Boseman had been expected to win the award, which, in a very rare move from the academy, was the last to be handed out this year instead of best picture. Hopkins’ win was anticlimactic on a show where he wasn’t present to accept the trophy. He later posted a video thanking the academy.
