THE late actor, Chadwick Boseman has won Best Actor Performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom at this year’s Golden Globes.
His widow, Taylor Simone Ledward gave an acceptance speech on his behalf, in a virtual footage.
“He would thank God,” she says, fighting back tears.
“He would thank his parentso. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices.”
“He would say something beautiful,” Ledward continues.
“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. He would thank Mr. George C. Wolfe, Mr. Denzel Washington, lots of people at Netflix. He would thank Mrs. Viola Davis,” among many others.
“I don’t have his words, but we have to take all the moments to celebrate those we love, so thank you, HFPA, for this opportunity to do exactly that,” she concludes. “And, hon? You keep ’em coming.”
