    Chadwick Boseman was posthumously honoured at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (28.03.21)

    The late actor - who died of cancer aged 43 last August - became only the second posthumous winner of the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama category thanks to his performance as a jazz musician in 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom


    His widow, Simone Ledward Boseman, gave an emotional acceptance speech in which she reflected on the "beautiful" words her husband would have offered if he had been alive to accept the award himself.

    She said: "He would thank God. He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices. He would thank his incredible team.

    “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.

    “I don’t have his words but we have to take all the moment to celebrate all we love, so thank you, HFPA, for this opportunity to do exactly that.

    Chadwick scooped the accolade ahead of Sir Anthony Hopkins for 'The Father', Riz Ahmed for 'The Sound of Metal', Gary Oldman for 'Mank', and Tahar Rahim for 'The Mauritanian'.

    This was the late star's first Golden Globe nomination.

    Elsewhere at the ceremony, Andra Day was a surprise winner of the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama accolade.

    The actress' performance as legendary singer Billie Holiday in 'The United States vs. Billie Holiday' saw her take the trophy ahead of Chadwick's 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' co-star Viola Davis, as well as Vanessa Kirby ('Pieces of a Woman'),Frances McDormand ('Nomadland') and Carey Mulligan ('Promising Young Woman').

    She tearfully paid tribute to her faith before going on to thank "the amazing transformative dynamic Billie Holiday, who just just transformed me with this role and with her presence and with her spirit.”
