Chadwick Boseman posthumously received the best actor award at the SAG Awards 2021, the award from the United States Actors Union, which is considered one of the Oscar prizes. The feature “The 7 of Chicago”, by Aaron Sorkin, won the category of best cast.
“We need leaders to guide us towards hating ourselves less,” said Frank Langella, who plays a racist judge in the judicial drama centered on repressing protests against the Vietnam war.
“We owe a debt of thanks to the voices of the 7 in Chicago,” he added, referring to the seven defendants at the 1969 trial, during the pre-recorded ceremony that lasted only an hour due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chadwick Boseman, the protagonist of “Black Panther”, who died last year at the age of 43 from cancer, won the best actor category for “The Supreme Voice of the Blues”, a drama set in the 1920s Chicago.
Boseman is also nominated for an Oscar for best actor. Only two actors won the Academy Award posthumously: Peter Finch, for Sidney Lumet’s “Network of Intrigue” (1976), and Heath Ledger, for Christopher Nolan’s “Batman: The Dark Knight” (2008).
Also in the cast of “The Supreme Voice of the Blues”, Viola Davis won the SAG for Best Actress. On her Instagram, Viola showed the dress chosen to accompany the night of awards at home.

The SAG award is considered a more reliable indicator of the chances of winning the Oscar, as the actors are the largest group of voters in the Academy. The Oscar ceremony is scheduled for April 25.
