Late Actor Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Kuluuya, And John Boyega Win Big At 78th Golden Globes Awards
British African actors and writers, Daniel Kaluuya, John Boyega and the late American African actor & playwright Chadwick Boseman have emerged winners in their respective categories at the just ended 78th Golden Globes took place this past Sunday. The coveted awards ceremony was held virtually from two different locations in New York and California amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Kaluuya, 32, was awarded a Golden Globe for his role as the best supporting actor in a motion picture for his performance in Judas and the Black Messiah. The actor beat out Sacha Baron Cohen (The Trial of the Chicago 7), Jared Leto (The Little Things), Bill Murray (On the Rocks) and Leslie Odom Jr. (One Night in Miami) for the award.
This is Kaluuya’s first Golden Globe win and second nomination. The actor was previously nominated in 2018 for best actor in a musical or comedy for his leading role in Get Out. Judas and the Black Messiah follows Black Panther chairman Fred Hampton (Kaluuya) and FBI informant Bill O’Neal (Lakeith Stanfield) leading up to Hampton’s death in a raid by the FBI.
Actor John Boyega won his first Golden Globe for best performance by an actor in a television supporting role for his work in Steve McQueen’s acclaimed anthology series “Small Axe”. The “Star Wars” alum played Leroy Logan in the ‘Red, White and Blue’ segment of the series, about the ordeal of a young black Londoner set on helping to break the colour barrier at London’s Metropolitan Police Force in the early 1980s.
Boyega, who made headlines last June for his moving speech at the Black Lives Matter protest at the UK’s Hyde Park in the wake of George Floyd’s killing in the US, admitted he wasn’t expecting to win.
The late Boseman, who unfortunately lost his battle with cancer last year, was awarded Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his phenomenal (and final) role in the 1920s jazz drama, Ma Rainey. The actor’s wife, Simone Ledward Boseman, accepted the award on his behalf and delivered a moving and emotional speech saying
“He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice that tells you ‘you can,’ that tells you ‘keep going,’ that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at his moment in history.”
