There wasn’t a dry eye in the (vir­tual) au­di­ence dur­ing the Gotham Awards, pre­sented by the In­de­pen­dent Film Project (IFP), where the late ac­tor was hon­ored. The star, best known for his roles in “Black Pan­ther,” “42” and “Get on Up,” died in Au­gust of colon can­cer at 43. Bose­man was tear­fully re­mem­bered by his widow, Tay­lor Simone Ledward, dur­ing a heart­break­ing trib­ute de­liv­ered re­motely. Ledward called her late hus­band “the most hon­est per­son I ever met be­cause he didn’t just stop at speak­ing the truth.”
