Chadwick Boseman gets posthumous Emmy nod for final Marvel role
Los Angeles, California - Chadwick Boseman received a posthumous Emmy nomination for his finale role in Marvel's What If … ?.
The late star's legacy continues to be bolstered as he received his first Emmy nomination on Tuesday.
The list of contenders for this year's Emmys saw the Black Panther actor landing a spot in the Outstanding Character Voice-over Performance category.
Boseman, who tragically passed away in 2020 from colon cancer, was nominated for his work as Star Lord/T'Challa in the animated Disney+ series, which was also his final role.
This nod comes a year after his name was put forward at the Oscars for his role in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
Though he didn't win the award for Best Actor, Sir Anthony Hopkins, who took home the honor, paid a moving tribute to the Marvel star.
Moon Knight and Loki also rack up Emmy noms
The 21 Bridges actor isn't the only Marvel alum to score a nomination for this year's Emmys.
Jeffrey Wright, who voiced the mysterious alien The Watcher in the animated series, was also nominated in the same category as his late costar.
Additionally, the series, Hawkeye, earned two spots in the Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or Variety Program and Stunt Performance categories.
