The 78th Golden Globes took place last night with Chadwick Boseman being awarded the best actor trophy for his role as Levee in the Netflix movie, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Renee Zellweger presented the award, which was accepted by Boseman’s widow.
Through tears, Simone Boseman said of her husband in an emotional acceptance speech;
“He would say something beautiful. Something inspiring. Something that would amplify that little voice inside all of us that tells you that you can do it, that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history.”
This was Boseman’s first nomination and first win at the Golden Globes. Boseman beat out some tough competition to earn the award. The other nominees were; Riz Ahmed for Sound Of Metal, Sir Anthony Hopkins for The Father, Gary Oldman for Mank and Tahar Rahim for The Mauritanian.
Chadwick Boseman had an illustrious career and starred in many films over the years, however he is possibly best known for his role as Black Panther in the MCU. He first appeared in Captain America: Civil War and played the character through to Avengers: Endgame, including a starring role as the titular character in Ryan Coogler’s Oscar-winning Black Panther.
Black Panther 2 is currently in development, but Kevin Feige has confirmed that the film will not use CGI to bring back the late actor.
Ryan Coogler will return as director to helm the superhero sequel. It has been speculated since Boseman’s passing that Letitia Wright, – who played T’Challa’s sister Shruri in the original movie, – is possibly being lined up to take over as the MCU’s Black Panther. However, nothing is confirmed thus far and currently the only actor slated to appear in the sequel, – according to the movie’s IMDB page, – is Danai Gurira as Okoye.
