It will remain the highlight of a rather strange partly virtual ceremony. A speech of thanks like no other, carried by the wife of an icon who died too soon. Taylor Simone Ledward intervened at the Golden Globes on Sunday, February 28, to deliver the thanks that Chadwick Boseman would have delivered himself if he had not been killed by colon cancer last summer.
The star of Black panther, who died at the age of 43, was posthumously awarded the award for Best Actor in a Dramatic Film for her performance in the Netflix film Ma Rainey’s Blues which he shares with Viola Davis. Actress Renée Zellweger, on stage to announce the name of the winner, quickly gave the floor to the comedian’s widow.

At home in her evening dress, Taylor Simone Ledward imagined herself in place of Chadwick Boseman to try to transcribe her thoughts as best as possible. “He would thank God. He would thank his parents and ancestors for their guidance and sacrifice. He would thank his amazing team as well as his amazing team on this movie.”, she begins with a trembling voice, listing all those with whom her husband has collaborated. “He would say something sublime, inspiring, something that would amplify the little voice that we all have in us and that tells us that we can do it, that we have to keep going. That voice that brings you back to this. that you are supposed to do at this precise moment “, she insists.
We must take all the moments given to us to celebrate the ones we love
She does not forget to thank “Mr. Denzel Washington”, who paid for Chadwick Boseman’s acting lessons when he was only a student, as well as “Miss Viola Davis” with he shared his latest scenes. “I don’t have his words, but we have to take every moment that is given to us to celebrate the ones we love. So thank you to the HFPA for allowing us to do just that.”, she continues before concluding by addressing her man. “Honey, keep sending us” such moments, she adds without ever flinching.
A sequence, broadcast a little earlier during the ceremony, undoubtedly made him smile. A host of children are asked about the cinema. Without much success. Their only right answer comes when asked who Chadwick Boseman is. All then respond with conviction “Black Panther!” One of them even explains that it is “a good guy”. One sign among others of the imprint that the American actor has left on American society, well beyond the dark rooms. Marvel’s first black superhero, he will continue to inspire generations to come. Because a legend never dies.
