Acclaimed actor Sir Anthony Hopkins honored his late fellow nominee Chadwick Boseman after winning an Oscar Isaac for best actor on Sunday.

The 83-year-old actor posted a video on his Instagram from his native Wales where he accepted the award for best actor for his performance in The Father.

Hopkins also paid tribute to his fellow nominee, Chadwick Boseman who was nominated for his final on-screen performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

“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 again, thank you all very much,” said Hopkins.

“I really did not expect this, so I feel very privileged and honored,” he added.
