- Posted On:April 25, 2021
The 93rd Academy Awards had tough competition with Anthony Hopkins up against the likes of Chadwick Boseman for his role of Levee in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ and Riz Ahmed for his role of Ruben in ‘Sound of Metal’. Anthony Hopkins beat off the competition to win the best actor academy award for his role in Florian Zeller’s movie about a man with dementia, also starring Olivia Coleman.
‘The Father’, directed by the French novelist and playwright Florian Zeller, who also wrote the acclaimed stage play on which the film was based on, is about an elderly man with dementia played by Anthony Hopkins and marked Anthony Hopkins second Oscar for best actor. He won his first Academy award back in 1992 for his role of Hannibal Lecter in ‘The Silence of the Lambs’.
This award makes Hopkins the oldest ever Oscar winner in this category, an honour previously held by the late Christopher Plummer, who was 82 when he won for Beginners in 2011.
