Chadwick Boseman made history during the 27th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday (April 4).
The late actor first earned his win for Outstanding Male Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in the Netflix film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. He is now the first actor to earn four nominations in a single year.
Boseman was also nominated for Outstanding Male Actor in a Supporting Role for the Spike Lee-directed movie, Da 5 Bloods, as well as Outstanding Cast in a Motion Picture for Ma Rainey and Da 5 Bloods.
Boseman’s wife, Simone Ledward Boseman accepted the award on her husband's behalf.
"Thank you, God. Thank you, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman," she said. "If you see the world unbalanced, be a crusader that pushes heavily on the seesaw of the mind. That's a quote by Chadwick Boseman. Thank you, Screen Actors. Thank you, Chad."
For the 2021 awards season, Chadwick Boseman has won an NAACP Image Award, a Golden Globe, a Critics Choice Award, and a Gotham Award.
