Earlier this week, Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman made history by receiving four Screen Actors Guild Award nominations in the same year. His former costar, Michael B. Jordan, paid tribute to the late actor and his accolades on Instagram.
Boseman’s record-breaking SAG Award nominations come just months after he passed away from colon cancer in August 2020 at the age of 43. Boseman is nominated in the male lead actor category for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, as the male supporting actor in Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, and in the ensemble category for both movies.
Sharing photos of Boseman on Instagram, Jordan wrote, “4. Still setting the bar higher. Miss you big homie. 🙌🏾🙏🏾💐.”

Alongside being nominated for four SAG Awards, Boseman also received a posthumous nod at the Golden Globes this week. The Marvel icon is nominated in the best actor in a motion picture category for his performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and it seems likely that Boseman’s prolific work will be recognized in 2021.
Speaking to People magazine in November 2018, Jordan paid tribute to his late costar and said, “Looking at two people in particular that had a real impact on me, in Kobe [Bryant] and Chadwick [Boseman]. You always look at your own mortality after something like that … The impact they’ve had on people in this world is truly incredible.” He continued, “To move that and push that ball forward is really important. That’s kind of what I want my legacy to be.”
