Boseman was given the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (drama) for his performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

The iconic actor passed away at the age of 43 in 2020.

Accepting the award, Ledward said that she did not have the words of her late husband, but that he would have thanked his ancestors if he was alive today.

She said: "He would thank God. He would thank his parents. And he would thank his ancestors.

"He would say something beautiful; something inspiring; something that would amplify that little voice inside all of us that tells you: you can; that tells you to keep going; that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history."

Viola Davis and Denzel Washington also got a mention in Ledward's speech, among others.

The Crown was the biggest winner when it came to TV shows, as it was named Best Drama, and its stars Josh O'Connor, Emma Corrin and Gillian Anderson were all honoured for their roles.
