Pregnant Emerald Fennell, Daniel Kaluuya and Anthony Hopkins led the triumphant British winners at the 93rd annual Academy Awards at the Union Station in Los Angeles on Sunday night
Emerald, 35, won the Oscar for Best Original Movie Script for Promising Young Woman, Daniel, 32, took house the very best Star In A Supporting Function for Judas And The Black Messiah while Anthony, 83, landed his second Best Actor In A Leading Role for The Father – although he was a no-show and later shared a late acceptance video from Wales
Anthony’s, who confessed he ‘did not expect’ his gong, win marks the star’s second gong after clinching the exact same award in 1992, for his timeless function as flesh-eating serial killer Hannibal Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs.
Chadwick Boseman, the posthumous nominee for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, was thought about the favourite to win at the awards event on Sunday night.
Winners! Emerald Fennell and Daniel Kaluuya (L-R) led the triumphant British winners at the 93rd annual Academy Awards at the Union Station in Los Angeles on Sunday evening.
No-show! Anthony Hopkins, 83, landed his second Best Actor In A Leading Function for The Daddy – although he was a no-show at the occasion and later shared a late approval video from Wales.
To make matters more surprising, Anthony was not even present at the awards show, kept in Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, California, when the prize existed by last year’s winner Joaquin Phoenix.
It follows the actor became the oldest guy in history to be granted Best Leading Star at the 2021 British Academy Movie Awards previously this month although he was again a no-show as he failed to appear at the virtual event and later on exposed he had actually been dealing with a painting in his hotel room in Wales.
The award-winning actor shared a later acceptance video on Monday early morning from Wales as he confessed that he ‘actually did not anticipate’ his win.
Speaking in a short clip surrounding by stretching countryside, Anthony said: ‘Great morning, here I am in my homeland of Wales and at 83-years-of-age I did not expect to get this award. I really didn’t.

Unforgettable: Anthony’s win marks the 83-year-old star’s 2nd gong after clinching the exact same award in 1992, for his timeless role as flesh-eating serial killer Hannibal Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs (visualized).
‘ I am grateful to the Academy and thank you. I want to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman who was taken from us far too early, and once again, thank you all very much. I really did not anticipate this, so I feel very privileged and honoured. Thank you.’.
Anthony once again made history on Sunday night as he became the oldest-ever star to win an Oscar for acting at the star-studded annual event.
That record was formerly held by the late Christopher Plummer, who won his Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for 2011’s Beginners.
In The Daddy, Hopkins depicts an aging man who refuses assistance from his child as he begins to lose his own firm.
The movie was chosen for an overall of six awards on Sunday, also capturing the Best Adjusted Movie script Oscar which went to Christopher Hampton and the film’s co-writer and director, Florian Zeller.
In The Daddy: Hopkins portrays an aging male who refuses support from his daughter as he starts to lose his own agency; seen here in the movie with Olivia Colman.
Hopkins is no stranger to developing buzz on Oscars night, as his victory for Jonathan Demme’s Finest Image winner The Silence Of The Lambs in 1992 produced a little bit of debate as well.
His performance as Lecter, opposite Jodie Foster’s Oscar-winning role as Clarice Starling, delights in not even a half hour of screen time in the film.
At 24 minutes and 52 seconds, Hopkins’ performance tracks just another– David Niven’s function in 1958’s Different Tables– as the shortest to win an Oscar.
Second-shortest function ever to win an Oscar: His performance as Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs enjoyed not even a half hour of screen time in the movie.
The 93rd Academy Awards marked the first time Tinseltown’s finest assembled in over a year, for a three-hour program that co-producer Steven Soderbergh described as being ‘like a motion picture.’.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hosted the delayed event at the historical Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, where socially distanced motion picture stars went mask-free while on-camera or seated in the primary program space.
A main spokesperson called this year’s event ‘an Oscars like none other, while prioritising the public health and safety of all those who will take part.’
