Chadwick Boseman honoured at virtual Gotham Film Awards

January 13, 2021 By 0 Comments

Chadwick Boseman has been remembered by his widow as an actor who “gave himself over fully to every moment”.

Accepting an award on the late star’s behalf at a virtual Gotham Film Awards, Simone Ledward Boseman said he had been “the most honest person I’ve ever met”.

“He didn’t just stop at speaking the truth,” she continued. “He actively searched for it in himself, in those around him and in the moment.”

The Black Panther star died of cancer in August last year at the age of 43.

He was honoured with the Gotham Awards actor tribute prize.

In a video message played during Monday’s awards presentation, Ledward Boseman fought back tears as she spoke about her “imperfect but determined” husband.

She said he had been “blessed to live many lives within his concentrated one” and implored him to “keep shining your light on us”.

Best known for his role in the Marvel superhero franchise, Boseman also played real-life figures such as James Brown (Get On Up) and Jackie Robinson (42).

He was also nominated posthumously for the Gothams’ best actor award for his work in Netflix drama Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
