"Black Panther" star, Chadwick Boseman, who died last year due to colon cancer won the Best Actor award for his performance in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" at the 26th Annual Critics Choice Awards. The trophy was accepted by his wife Taylor Simone Ledward who, in a moving speech, said that the actor "deserved" the award.

"You know it has to be said aloud that for those of us who know Chad intimately, personally, professionally, those he taught, those he gave a word for advice, those who taught him: It is so hard to find a celebratory feeling in these moments. As proud as we are of him, yes for his work, but even more just for who he is as a person, but his work deserves this. His work in this film deserves this -- he deserves this," she said during the ceremony.




"And so, he would always thank God first and foremost in everything. He would always honour his mother and his father. He would always acknowledge those who came before him, those who charted the path, those who gave him their gifts," she continued, stressing on the importance of black voices telling black stories.
