The virtual ceremony took place in New York on Monday, Jan 11, and honored the Wakanda King with the Actor Tribute. He was also nominated for Best Actor for his role in Rainey. However, the prize went to Sound Of Metal’s Riz Ahmed, who lauded Chadwick’s performance in his speech.
As she accepted the tribute on his behalf, Simone praised her late husband for seeking honesty in every facet of his life. Chadwick passed away at the age of 43 in August 2020 following a battle with colon cancer.
‘’As an artist, an actor, a person, Chad made a practice of telling the truth. He is the most honest person I’ve ever met. Because he didn’t just stop at speaking the truth, he actively searched for it – in himself, in those around him, and in the moment. The truth can be a very easy thing for the self to avoid. If one does not live in the truth, then it is impossible to live in line with a divine purpose in life.”
She explained that this philosophy allowed the Black Panther star to ‘’give himself over fully to every moment. And to be totally present in his own life. Simone concluded by thanking God for ‘’giving Chad these gifts, and installing strength to bear its weight.’’
She then added, ‘’Chad, thank you. I love you. I am so proud of you. Keep shining your light on us.’’
