Anthony Hopkins said he believed the standing ovation at the Oscars was a fire drill.

Sir Anthony Hopkins boycotted the Oscars last year, revealing later that he believed he wouldn't take home the Best Actor prize.

Sir Anthony Hopkins, a British actor, attended the Oscars on Sunday night. The 84-year-old also provided one of the afterparty's popular moments while presenting Jessica Chastain with the Best Actress prize for "The Eyes of Tammy Faye." Despite winning the Best Actor prize for "The Father" the previous year, he chose to forgo the ceremony, which raised a lot of questions. Sir Anthony praised the audience, which included A-list celebrities, for the standing ovation.

"Having returned to The Academy Awards is wonderful. I was shocked to believe that the standing ovation was a fire drill "He mentioned this in a tweet that was published during the event and included a brief video of him taking the stage at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to raucous applause.

Following Will Smith's emotional acceptance speech for his performance in "King Richard," in which he apologized to the Academy for slapping comedian Chris Rock, Sir Anthony delivered the award.

"Will Smith summed up what an evening it was. What else needs to be said? Let there be calm, love, and peace, Sir Anthony urged.

In addition, he uploaded a video of himself dancing while buttoning up his suit and "getting ready" for the ceremony.

Sir Anthony had boycotted the event the previous year, subsequently revealing that he believed he wouldn't take home the Best Actor prize for his work in "The Father."

"I in no way anticipated receiving it. At around five in the morning, my phone rang, and it was a text from my agent saying, "You've won the Oscar." I found it hard to believe. I couldn't believe it in the least. A few months after the Oscars event of the previous year, Sir Anthony remarked, "I didn't expect it.

Sir Anthony took to the dance floor at the Oscars afterparty on Sunday to display his abilities.

Social media users praised the renowned actor in the viral video. "I needed to see this, really. Tfs," a Twitter user wrote.
