Chadwick Boseman Wins Posthumous Award for 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'

One of many honors the late actor has won since his death.

Chadwick Boseman, well known for his roles in movies like Black Panther, has posthumously won another award for his final performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. This marks one of many titles honoring the late actor since his untimely death in August.

Taking place virtually, the 2020 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards announced Boseman as the winner of its Best Actor title. The movie, based on a 1982 play, illustrates a day at a recording studio in 1920s Chicago, featuring blues singer Ma Rainey (played by Viola Davis) and Boseman as a trumpeter in her band.

The new award comes after multiple titles Boseman won posthumously, including Hero of the Ages at the MTV Movie & TV Awards and most recently, Best Supporting Actor at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.
