Chadwick Boseman gets posthumous nominations for Screen Actors Guild Awards

On Thursday, January 4, Chadwick Boseman got two posthumous nominations from the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The late actor got the nomination for his lead role in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," and also his supporting role in "Da 5 Bloods."

Boseman who is quite notable for his role as King T’Challa in Black Panther, passed on last August after a four-year battle with colon cancer. In his role in ‘’Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’’, a 1920s-era film, he was Levee Green, the trumpeter. Boseman got a posthumous nomination in the Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) category at the Globes.

The nomination comes after his two NAACP Image Awards nominations last week. It is also a pointer to an Oscar nomination, which is set to be announced on Monday, March 15.

The Screen Actors Guild had a different slate of nominees for its top award. Up on the group of nomination are Lee Isaac Chung's "Minari"; Regina King's "One Night in Miami; Spkie Lee's Vietnam drama "Da 5 Bloods"; August Wilson adaptation "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom"; and Aaron Sorkin's "The Trial of the Chicago 7." However, The Trial of the Chicago 7 was later dropped by the Globes.
