The 43-year-old Black Panther actor, who passed away in August after a private four-year battle with colon cancer, posthumously received the Hero of the Ages honor which aired on Sunday night (December 6).
“The second you first saw him onscreen or had the opportunity to meet him in person, his energy and intensity was undeniable,” Robert said. “There was something different and special about Chadwick Boseman. Mr. Boseman truly embodied what it meant to be a superhero. His impact as a groundbreaking leading man, as an icon onscreen… it won’t be quantified by the box office records he broke but by the legion of fans who will celebrate him for many years to come.”
He continued: “He was the most heroic when just being Chad. That’s when he was bigger than anyone he played onscreen.”
Don added: “With every role he created a new legion of fans. He has an incredible power to unify people. The way he lived his life united people behind a higher purpose — and that will be his legacy.”
