(CNN)According to Sir Anthony Hopkins, people on the internet were not the only ones surprised by his historic Oscar win for best actor Sunday night.

The 83-year-old thespian became the oldest winner in the acting category for his performance as a man grappling with dementia in “The Father,” which was considered a bit of an upset over the late Chadwick Boseman, who had been favored by many.”Good morning,” Hopkins said in a video posted to Instagram. “Here I am in my homeland in Wales and at 83-years-of-age I did not expect to get this award. I really didn’t.”Photos: Oscars winners 2021Photos: Oscars winners 2021 Photos: Oscars winners 2021<strong>Best picture:</strong> "Nomadland"<strong>Best picture:</strong> "Nomadland" Photos: Oscars
