Chadwick Boseman Won the Best Actor Award at the Golden Globes

Chadwick Boseman won the best actor award at the Golden Globes on Sunday for his role in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”. Boseman’s widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepted the award for best actor in a motion picture drama on behalf of the late actor.

He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells us we can.”

That tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing.

The actor died in August of colon cancer at age 43 — three months before “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” was released.⁣⁣⁣ He is now the first Black winner in the category in almost 15 years. Before him, Forest Whitaker won at the 2007 ceremony for his performance as Idi Amin in “The Last King of Scotland.” Boseman’s first Golden Globe also makes him the first Black posthumous winner in an acting category.⁣⁣
