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," which comes just 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").
During a tearful speech, Simone Boseman said, “He would say something beautiful. Something inspiring. Something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us 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.”
The award was presented by Renée Zellweger.
Indiewire reported that elsewhere in the ongoing awards season, Boseman is also nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a Critics Choice Award, and is the favorite to beat for the Academy Award for Best Actor, though nominations won’t be announced until later this month. Boseman has also won numerous critics’ prizes throughout the year.
Boseman died on August 28, 2020 at the age of 43 at the end of a private battle with colon cancer.
