  • Anthony has been nominated for a total of six Academy Awards, his win marks his second gong after clinching the same award in 1992, for his timeless role as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs 

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 evening.  

Pregnant Emerald, 35, won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Promising Young Woman, Daniel, 32, took home the Best Actor In A Supporting Role 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 at the event. 

Anthony’s win marks the 83-year-old star’s second gong after clinching the same award in 1992, for his timeless role as flesh-eating serial killer Hannibal Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs.


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 Role for The Father – although he was a no-show at the event (pictured in a film still of The Father) 

Chadwick Boseman, the posthumous nominee for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, was considered the favourite to win at the awards event on Sunday night. 

To make matters more surprising, Anthony was not even present at the awards show, held in Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, California, when the trophy was presented by last year’s winner Joaquin Phoenix. 

It comes after the actor became the oldest man in history to be awarded Best Leading Actor at the 2021 British Academy Film Awards earlier this month although he was again a no-show as he failed to appear at the virtual ceremony and later revealed he had been working on a painting in his hotel room in Wales. 

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.  

Unforgettable: The win marks the 83-year-old thespian’s second gong after clinching the same award in 1992, for his timeless role as serial killer Hannibal Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs

That record was previously held by the late Christopher Plummer, who won his Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for 2011’s Beginners.

In The Father, Hopkins portrays an ageing man who refuses assistance from his daughter as he begins to lose his own agency.

The film was nominated for a total of six awards on Sunday, also nabbing the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar which went to Christopher Hampton and the film’s co-writer and director, Florian Zeller.

Hopkins is no stranger to creating buzz on Oscars night, as his victory for Jonathan Demme’s Best Picture winner The Silence Of The Lambs in 1992 created a bit of controversy as well.

His performance as Lecter, opposite Jodie Foster‘s Oscar-winning role as Clarice Starling, enjoys not even a half hour of screen time in the film.

At 24 minutes and 52 seconds, Hopkins’ performance trails just one other – David Niven’s role in 1958’s Separate Tables – as the shortest to win an Oscar.

The 93rd Academy Awards marked the first time Tinseltown’s finest assembled in over a year, for a three-hour show that co-producer Steven Soderbergh described as being ‘like a movie.’

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hosted the delayed ceremony at the historic Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, where socially distanced movie stars went mask-free while on-camera or seated in the main show room. 

An official spokesperson called this year’s event ‘an Oscars like none other, while prioritising the public health and safety of all those who will participate.’
