Chadwick Boseman got a lot of love at the Oscars … something his family was well aware of and super appreciative to hear during the big night.
Allen Boseman, Chadwick’s cousin and the attorney for the Boseman family tells TMZ … “It’s been incredible how Chadwick has been received by the entire Hollywood family and how his legacy continues to live on.”
He goes on to say … “Even though he’s physically gone his spirit remains in the hearts and minds of his peers and fellow actors and actresses on Hollywood’s biggest stage. While he was a figurative king in the movie, he appears to be a real king to many others, including those in our family.”
ICYMI, Danai Gurira, who starred alongside CB in “Black Panther”, paid homage to Chadwick before Rihanna performed “Lift Me Up”.
Ruth E Carter, who took home Best Costume Design for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” also made a moving tribute to Chadwick and her late mother during her acceptance speech … saying “Chadwick, please take care of mom.”
You’ll recall Chadwick played King T’Challa in “Black Panther”. He died in 2020 after a 4-year battle with colon cancer.
He was 43.
