She concluded: ‘I don’t have his words but we have to take all the moment to celebrate all we love, so thank you, HFPA, for this opportunity to do exactly that.’

Critic Courtney Howard wrote: ‘The absolute strength Chadwick Boseman’s widow Taylor Simone Ledward has demonstrated every single time she’s had to speak on his behalf is truly moving. My heart goes out to her.’
