The passing of Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman in August last year was one of the saddest days of 2020. He had passed following a 4-year battle with colon cancer. 

This is why it was extra special when he was named the best movie actor at the Golden Globe awards on Sunday for his role as an ambitious trumpet player called Levee in the 1920s Netflix jazz drama Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. This was Boseman’s last performance before he passed away.

His award was accepted by his widow, Simone Ledward Boseman via Zoom. 

“He would say something beautiful,” she said. “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 … and I don’t have his words.”
