Roommates, awards ceremonies generally don’t have the best reputation when it comes to awarding Black Excellence – but this year’s Golden Globes were a little different. Actors like the late Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Kaluuya and newcomer Andra Day took home the coveted award for their outstanding achievements this year.
Chadwick Boseman went to the 2021 Golden Globes and was the favorite to be named best actor in a drama – and he did just that. The late actor, who tragically died last year after a secret battle with colon cancer, won for his incredible performance in the Netflix musical “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” alongside Viola Davis. His wife Taylor Simone Ledward gave an emotional acceptance speech full of tears as she thanked his co-stars, mentors, fans and celebrity friends.
Daniel Kaluuya also took home a Golden Globe statue for his appearance in the recently released Judas and the Black Messiah, which was the very first award of the night. For his portrayal as Black Panther Fred Hampton in the biographical film, he won best supporting actor in a drama.
The night’s most surprising win, however, was singer (and now actress) Andra Day, who won over Viola Davis for her dazzling performance as the legendary Billie Holiday in the Lee Daniels film “United States vs. Billie Holiday”. This is Andra’s very first film role and now her very first big prize win.
In addition, John Boyega won Best Supporting Actor in a TV Series for the Amazon show “Small Ax” and the Disney Pixar animated film “Soul” starring Jamie Foxx for Best Animated Film.
Congratulations to all of the 2021 Golden Globe winners!
