Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis to be honoured at the 2021 Gotham Awards

OHMYGOSSIP — Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis are set to be honoured with tributes at the 2021 Gotham Awards.
The late actor – who sadly passed away earlier this year at the age of 43 following a secret cancer battle – and the 55-year-old actress have both been lined up for a special tribute at the 30th anniversary IFP Gotham Awards, the Independent Filmmaker Project announced on Thursday.
The two Hollywood stars both held roles in the Netflix movie, ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’, and their honour will mark the first time that the Gotham Awards’ actor and actress tributes have gone to two performers from the same movie.
Other honourees n recent years have been Laura Dern, Sam Rockwell, Rachel Weisz, Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman, Dustin Hoffman, and Amy Adams.
Chadwick is also only the second actor to receive a tribute posthumously, after James Gandolfini in 2013.
When the Gotham nominations were announced in November, the ‘Black Panther’ star also received a nom in the Best Actor category, making him the first actor in the award’s eight-year history to receive a tribute and be nominated in a competitive category in the same year.
‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ is an adaptation of August Wilson’s play directed by George C. Wolfe, and sees Viola play the title role of legendary jazz and blues singer Ma Rainey, whilst Chadwick starred as a young trumpeter who is tired of playing what he thinks of as old-fashioned material and wants to push jazz in a newer, fresher direction.
The Gotham Awards will take place in New York City on January 11, 2021, and will still be held at its usual venue, Cipriani Wall Street.
However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the IFP have said the ceremony will be “a virtual hybrid format featuring virtual interactive tables in order to follow health and safety protocols”.
