While accepting the Actor Tribute Award for “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman at the 30th Gotham Awards on Monday, Taylor Simone Ledward did so with tears in her eyes.
Since Boseman passed away in August at the age of 43 following a personal fight with colon cancer, Ledward has only appeared in public virtually.
In acknowledgment of Boseman’s “deep work, as well as his impact on this profession and the world,” she said it was an honor to accept the posthumous tribute on his behalf.
“Chad, many thanks. I adore you. You have made me incredibly proud. Keep shining your light on us, she said throughout the tearful speech.
The “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” actress, according to Ledward, was the most sincere person she had ever met.
She remarked, as reported by People and the Wrap, “Because he didn’t simply stop at stating the truth, he actively searched for it: in himself, those around him, and the situation.”
The truth might be quite simple for the self to resist, but if one does not live in truth, it is impossible to live in accordance with the divine purpose for their existence. And so, day in and day out, it became the way he lived his life. imperfect and determined.
He was able to fully commit to each moment, to be fully present in both his own life and the lives of the people he became. He was fortunate to lead several lives while concentrating on one, said Ledward.

He came to comprehend what it meant to be the none, the one, and the all. He referred to it as “a vessel to be poured into and out of.” He was able to tap into the strength of surrender and allow God’s love to flow through.
The actor from “Marshall,” “Get On Up,” “42,” and “Da 5 Bloods” was also nominated for the best actor Oscar for his performance in his final movie, “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” but Riz Ahmed’s “Sound of the Metal” won.
In his remarks, Ahmed made sure to mention Boseman as well.
“Creativity isn’t a solo activity. I wish to thank all the other nominees for their contributions and inspiration in that vein. And in particular, Chadwick Boseman, whose performance I felt to be genuinely inspirational because of the way he carried himself with such decency and such humanity as to be an example for all of us and for performers of my generation
The “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” cast and crew pay tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman and his final on-screen performance.
The Independent Filmmaker Project held the Gotham Awards, which were attended by visitors and nominees both in-person and digitally.
At the “MTV Movie & TV Awards: Greatest of All Time” special in December, Boseman’s legacy was again celebrated. Don Cheadle and Robert Downey Jr., his “Avengers” co-stars, gave the late actor the Hero for the Ages award.
