It’s still heartbreaking to think that Chadwick Boseman is no longer with us but as time goes on so must we. I’ve pretty much dedicated this week to the actor in commemoration of his legacy and as such I wanted to write this post which points out the obvious; Boseman needs to be nominated for a posthumous Oscar next year.
It’s happened before. Heath Ledger was nominated posthumously for his role as the Joker in The Dark Knight, a nomination that culminated into a win for his chilling and very memorable performance. The last movie I watched featuring Chadwick Boseman was Da 5 Bloods and to say he was extraordinary as the commanding soldier, Stormin’ Norman is an understatement. I didn’t see Black Panther and that is saying something considering how great of a job he did as the Marvel superhero.
His role was small in the film but every scene he graced he commanded with such power. He undoubtedly deserves an Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actor for that role and yes, maybe even a win. That’s how great he did and I’m not even exaggerating. Just watch the film and you’ll see for yourself.
Do you think Chadwick Boseman deserves a posthumous Oscar for his role in Da 5 Bloods? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
