Chadwick Boseman Wins SAG Award, Simone Ledward Delivers Moving Speech

The late Chadwick Boseman is picking up awards at every award show imaginable. Not long ago, he picked up the "Best Actor - Motion Picture Drama" award at the Golden Globe Awards. Shortly thereafter, he won the "Best Actor" award at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards. With the 93rd Annual Academy Awards nearing, Boseman has picked up yet another award. The Black Panther star won the "Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role" award at the 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Accepting the award on his behalf, his wife, Simone Ledward Boseman, delivered a heartfelt speech.

"'If you see the world unbalanced, be a crusader that pushes heavily on the seesaw of the mind.' That's a quote from Chadwick Boseman," she said.

"Thank you, Screen Actors. Thank you, Chad."

Boseman was able to take home the award for his efforts in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, but his efforts in Da 5 Bloods were not recognized. He was nominated for "Best Supporting Actor" and the entire cast was nominated for "Best Acting Ensemble." After sweeping the National Board Review award ceremony, the film has not been celebrated at the SAG Awards, Golden Globe Awards and it was deprived of any acting or direction nominations at the 93rd Annual Academy Awards. Fortunately, Boseman was able to nab the "Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture" award at the NAACP Image Awards.

Adding to his run, Boseman has been nominated at both the Academy Awards and British Film Academy Awards. It is his first nomination at both award shows. He is set to make his final appearance in television through the upcoming Disney+ series, What If, later this year. At this time, it is unclear if his image or likeness will be used in any upcoming films.
