Late actor Chadwick Boseman has been making headlines for his wins this awards season. With a few days to go for the Oscars 2021, Chadwick is the front runner to bag the Best Actor award for his work in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. With fans anticipating a big win at the Oscars, Netflix is gearing up to release a star studded tribute in memory of the late actor. 

Titled Chadwick Boseman: Portrait of an Artist, the Netflix documentary will take an intimate look at Chadwick's acting process and  his "incomparable artistry" over the years. The tribute will feature interviews from Ma Rainey's co-stars Viola Davis, Glynn Turman, and Taylour Paige, alongside director George C. Wolfe. Other artistes taking part in the project include Danai Gurira, Brian Helgeland, Reginald Hudlin, Spike Lee, Phylicia Rashad, and Denzel Washington amongst others.

"Chadwick Boseman: Portrait of an Artist’ is an intimate look at the Oscar-nominated actor’s incomparable artistry, and the acting process which informed his transformative performances," read the description of Netflix's project. 

The documentary is set to release on 17 April. However, it won't forever stay on the streaming platform. According to reports, the documentary will be on Netflix only for a span of 30 days before being taken down. 

The awards season which commenced earlier this year saw Chadwick winning the Best Actor award at the Screen Actors Guild, Critic's Choice Award and the Golden Globe as well. At the Oscars 2021, Chadwick has been nominated alongside Riz Ahmed for Sound of Metal, Anthony Hopkins for The Father, Gary Oldman for Mank and Steven Yeun for Minari.
