This is what Simone Ledward Boseman, wife of Chadwick Boseman, shared.
Simone Ledward Boseman, who was married to Chadwick before his death, accepted the award on his behalf. She spoke on stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, telling the crowd how her late husband recorded the part while he was recovering.
She told The Hollywood Reporter that when she learned that Chad was nominated for this award, I began thinking about everything that was happening during his recording. Everything that was happening in the world and our world was just in awe of his dedication and dedication.
And what a beautifully aligned moment it is that one of the last things he would do would be revisiting a character that was so important to him, his career, and the world, as well as exploration of something new, diving into a new possible future, especially with everything he said about the purpose and finding the reason you are on the planet at this time.
Simone said. Unless you are willing to ask, What if? and reply, What if the universe is working for me? What if it is me?
