Six months after Chadwick Boseman’s death, the actor won a Golden Globe on Sunday for his swan-song performance in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” It could be the beginning of a streak of major awards that culminates for him at the Oscars in April.
Boseman’s wife, Simone Ledward, accepted the award on his behalf in a Zoom call.
