Yesterday, the 33-year-old remembered his Black Panther co-star in an Instagram post after Chadwick Boseman became the first person in history to earn four SAG award nominations in the same year.

Chadwick was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and Male Actor in a Supporting Role for Da 5 Bloods. He also scored two additional noms for both films in the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture category.

"Four. Still setting the bar higher. Miss you, big homie," the Fahrenheit 451 actor wrote in the caption.

Michael also shared an emotional tribute last August when Chadwick died at the age of 43 from colon cancer.

"Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old, you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness," he wrote.

"I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. 'Is this your king?!' Yes. He. Is! Rest In Power, Brother," he concluded.
