The prize is Oscar’s greatest thermometer!
Actor Chadwick Boseman, who died in 2020, received four nominations for the SAG Awards, an Actors Union award that is considered one of Oscar’s greatest thermometers.
The star who became known around the world for bringing the Black Panther to life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appeared last year in two of the year’s most acclaimed films, Blood Detachment and The Supreme Voice of the Blues, both available on Netflix. The feature films were Boseman’s last film before his death in August 2020.
Today (4) the nominations for the SAG Awards were announced, and Boseman appears in four different categories: Best Lead Actor and Best Cast for The Supreme Voice of the Blues and Best Supporting Actor and Best Cast for Highlighting Blood. In this way, the actor makes history at the awards by being the first person to achieve such a realization.
This is the second year that Boseman has received a nomination for the SAG Awards. In 2019, the actor and his Black Panther teammates received the award for best film casting.
Additionally, it was announced yesterday (3) that Chadwick Boseman has also received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Dramatic Film for The Supreme Voice of the Blues.
How important are the SAG Awards?
The Screen Actors Guild Awards, also known as the SAG Awards, are an honor bestowed by the Actors Union of the United States, which brings together approximately 160,000 film and television actors, journalists, radio personalities, stuntmen and other media professionals around the world. The awards ceremony takes place on April 4.
The prize is considered one of the biggest in the entertainment industry and is generally an indication of what will happen at the Oscars. Therefore, we shouldn’t be surprised if Boseman achieves this feat in the Oscars as well. The Oscar nominations are expected to be announced on March 15.
