Chadwick Boseman Wins ‘Best Actor’ At Golden Globes Six Months After Death
The late Chadwick Boseman on Sunday won the Golden Globe for best actor in a drama for his poignant role in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”
The award comes just six months after he died of cancer at age 43.
His wife gave a moving speech to accept his prize, which was awarded to him over Riz Ahmed (“Sound of Metal”), Anthony Hopkins (“The Father”), Gary Oldman (“Mank”) and Tahar Rahim (“The Mauritanian”).
“He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifice,” said his widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepting on his behalf.
“He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice that tells you you can, that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history,” she added.
