Black Panther Star Chadwick Boseman Wins a Posthumous Emmy for His Role in What if…?
Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman has been posthumously awarded an Emmy for his role in Marvel’s hit animated Disney+ series, What If…?
The T’Challa actor passed away two years ago following a tough battle with colon cancer, which he kept private for years. Performances from Boseman in films which released after his death were critically acclaimed. This includes his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor.

Along with Levee in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, another role that struck a chord with fans was Black Panther in the MCU. The actor played the Wakandan superhero in films like Black Panther, Captain America: Civil War and the last two Avengers films.
Other than that, he also lent his voice for the character in the Disney+ animated series, What If…? for the episode What If… T’Challa became a Star-Lord?, where he played an alternate version of the Guardians of the Galaxy character.
