Chadwick Boseman was honored with the Golden Globe award for “Best Actor in a Motion Picture: Drama.” last night, but it was his wife’s heartfelt acceptance speech that nearly brought us all the tears.
Chadwick Boseman, who passed away last August after a four-year battle with colon cancer, received a posthumous award for “Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama” at the Golden Globes, Sunday, for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Boseman’s wife, Taylor Simone Ledward Boseman accepted the award in his place.
“He would thank God,” she began. “He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifice.”
“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 were meant to be doing at this moment in history,” she continued.
“We have to take all the moment to celebrate those we love, so thank you HFPA for this opportunity to do exactly that,” Boseman continued. “And hon, you keep ’em coming.”
The victory marks Boseman’s first Golden Globe win. Our prayers truly go out to Mrs Boseman. Take a look at the emotional acceptance speech below:
