THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
Actor Chadwick Boseman has passed away on August 28, 2020 at the age of 43 following a four year battle with colon cancer.
Over the course of Boseman's all too short acting career, he would get the opportunity to play American icons James Brown (Get On Up), Jackie Robinson (42), and Thurgood Marshall (Marshall) though he was perhaps best known for introducing the world to T'Challa, aka Black Panther, in the 2016 film Captain American: Civil War, a role which he would reprise in a standalone Black Panther film as well Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
In addition to his on-screen credits, Boseman worked with several of the top names in the business including director Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) and Spike Lee (Da 5 Bloods). His work spanned action and adventure films to more serious character studies of historical figures. There is no doubt he would have landed himself an acting Oscar in the near future, had his career not been cut short.
Boseman is survived by his wife Taylor Simone Ledward.
I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
