“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,” Ledward Boseman tearfully said. 

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. And, honey, you keep ’em coming. Thank you.”

Boseman passed away in August 2020 of colon cancer. The 42-year-old had been diagnosed several years prior but kept it a secret as he continued to work on Black , Marshall,  Da 5 Bloods and more films as he was undergoing chemotherapy and surgeries.
