Chadwick Boseman has been posthumously nominated for a Golden Globe award for his performance in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’.
The late actor – who died of colon cancer in August, aged 43 – received a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama from the Hollywood Foreign Press on Wednesday (02.03.21).
The movie tells the story of Ma Rainey, a blues singer in the 1920s, and Boseman plays the role of Levee Green, an accomplished trumpet player, in the George C. Wolfe-directed drama film.
The Hollywood star passed away during post-production of the film and although he’s previously been nominated for various awards, Boseman’s posthumous Golden Globe nomination is the first of his career.
