Chadwick Boseman Gets Posthumous Emmy Nomination For What If…?


- Advertisment -spot_imgspot_imgspot_imgspot_img

Chadwick Boseman’s iconic career lives on. Today, the late actor, who passed away in 2020, received a posthumous Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance category for his role in Disney+ and Marvel Studios’ What If…?.

Boseman reprised his acclaimed role as T’Challa for an episode of the animated series, which imagines different timelines and endings for MCU characters (and also received its own nomination for the Outstanding Animated Program category). What If…? notably aired after Boseman’s passing and marked his last appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This isn’t the first time Boseman’s career has been recognized after his death. Earlier this year, Boseman also received a posthumous Oscar nomination and won a Screen Actors Guild award for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

Boseman passed away in 2020 at the age of 43 after a four year-long fight against colon cancer. He was best known for his role as T’Challa in Marvel’s Black Panther, which was the first superhero movie to earn a Best Picture nomination, though his career saw him take on numerous other leading roles such as Jackie Robinson in 42 and Thurgood Marshall in Marshall.

The Emmy Awards are slated to air on September 12.
