His wife, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepted the award and gave a touching, emotional speech.

And a little earlier in the night β€” during an otherwise silly segment with La'Ron Hines called, "What Do Kids Know About the Golden Globes?" β€” we saw exactly how Chadwick's legacy will live on forever.

NBC

The segment started with La'Ron asking some preciously precocious children simple questions about awards season:

And their responses were, of course, equal parts hilarious and iconic:

For instance, this child's response made me literally LOL alone in my home:

A child being asked "What movie has Captain America been in besides Captain America" and answering, "Spider-Man"
NBC

Because it's true! He is, technically, also in Spider-Man: Homecoming!!!

But to end the silly segment, they decided to make us all sob out of nowhere. La'Ron's final question for the kids was a simple one: "Who is Chadwick Boseman?"

NBC

And EVERY. SINGLE. CHILD. Knew the correct answer:

Because for them (and ALL of us) he is, was, and always will be the Black Panther:

And it wasn't just me full-on ugly-crying! The internet was also moved by the surprisingly sweet moment:

OK, fine, I am crying over all of these kids automatically knowing who Chadwick Boseman is. #GoldenGlobes

All of Twitter comforting each other after the kids knew who Chadwick Boseman was... especially when the one kid called him the "good guy". #GoldenGlobes
