Late Chadwick Boseman has continued to scoop awards for his work in the movie industry, for the SAG Awards, his widow, like always received the meritorious performance award on his behalf.
Taylor Simone Ledward who started her speech by appreciating God, rocked a bright yellow and green ensemble while receiving the award on behalf of Boseman for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” on Sunday.
Taylor appeared virtually for the pre-taped award show, as she thanked Boseman’s parents and August Wilson, the writer of the play on which the film is based.
“If you see the world unbalanced, be a crusader that pushes heavily on the see-saw of the mind. That’s a quote by Chadwick Boseman,” she said.
Taylor’s appreciation also got to the film’s co-stars Viola Davis and also thanked Denzel Washington, who once paid for Boseman’s tuition to attend the British American Drama Academy.
The wife of the late actor had previously received a Critics’ Choice Award and a Golden Globe on his behalf earlier this year. During the Golden Globes, Taylor said, “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,” added.
In January, Taylor Simone Ledward also received his posthumous prize at the Gotham Awards. Meanwhile, the 43-year-old “Black Panther” star lost his life after battling colon cancer last summer.
