Generally speaking, I’m not really a fan of award shows. In fact, I despise most of them because they’re nothing more than lectures from millionaires.

However, I’ll be the first one to admit that the tribute from Downey Jr. and Cheadle was awesome.

It’s still hard to believe that Boseman is gone. The public had no idea that he was battling cancer for years, and we found out when his death was announced.

I was sitting at a party with some friends drinking a beer when I got the alert on my phone. I seriously couldn’t believe what I was reading.

Chadwick Boseman wasn’t just a famous actor. He literally transcended Hollywood. He was a global icon.

I’m glad to see that we’re still honoring his memory. If there was ever anyone in Hollywood who deserves it, it’s Chadwick Boseman.
