On receiving the award, he said: “To my Marvel/Disney family… the cast and crew… tears may come in the evening, but joy comes in the morning. We went on this journey together. We loved, we mourned, we healed. And every day we are surrounded by the power and spirit of Chadwick Boseman.

“We showed the world how black unity, leadership and love is beyond, behind and in front of the camera.”

This year’s Golden Globes ceremony will be the first televised ceremony in two years after a high-profile scandal surrounding the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the Globes’ organizing body.

Many high-profile celebrities have boycotted Globes for the past two years. Los Angeles Times The exposé noted the lack of diversity among HFPA’s voting members. (There was not a single Black member in their ranks at the time.)

In addition to the diversity scandal, the organization has also come under criticism for “ethical mistakes” in conducting its business.
