After much conversation about its award season potential, Black Panther was awarded the top honour at the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Chadwick Boseman, who famously portrayed the titular superhero, delivered a rousing speech while joined onstage by his esteemed costars. In it, the actor addressed whether Black Panther has changed the film industry. After that triumphant win, it's undeniable.
"To be young, gifted, and black," said Boseman. "We know what it's like to be told there's not a screen for you to be featured on. We know what it's like to be the tail and not the head. We know what it's like to be beneath and not above — and that is what we went to work with every day." Coming back to the notion of Black Panther's lasting impact, Boseman said, "I know that you can't have a Black Panther now without a '2' on it." See the powerful moment ahead.
