Snubbed? Many believed the otherworldly portrayal of “Levee” by the late Chadwick Boseman in the Netflix production of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, would have garnered the actor who died of colon cancer last August an Oscar. But, it wasn’t meant to be. The Best Actor Award went to legendary actor Anthony Hopkins (his second Oscar) for his role in The Father. Despite the salty feelings of some, especially from the Black community who are big fans of the man who brought Marvel’s Black Panther to life, Boseman’s brother has a different take. Allegedly Derrick Boseman told TMZ that the Oscar was not all-important to his brother and his family is not “agitated whatsoever,” according to the news outlet. “That being said…Derrick says, yes, an Oscar would have been an achievement, but was never an obsession,” according to TMZ.
