Try Not To Cry Watching These Adorable Kids Answer Questions About Chadwick Boseman And ‘Black Panther’

Boseman won a posthumous Golden Globe on Sunday for his role in “Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.”

As part of his popular program, "Are You Smarter Than A Preschooler?" TikTok star LaRon Hines gathered children from his parents' daycare and quizzed them on the nominees of Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, especially delighting the kids when he asked them about Chadwick Boseman

"Who is Chadwick Boseman?" Hines asked.

The young movie buffs gave a similar description of the late actor, who won a Golden Globe on Sunday for his role in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

"Black Panther," the children replied when they were asked about the Hollywood star.

One child also described Boseman as the "good guy." 

The participants also answered several other questions, adorably attempting to show off their knowledge about Captain America, Jane Fonda, Hamilton and more.

One child, who was asked to explain the Golden Globes, said it's a "treasure." According to another little one, people "sit on the couch and brush their teeth" during award shows.  

Asked to describe how movies are made, one boy said "they're made of bricks." There was also a question about Ozark, which one girl identified as "the cookie monster to the cookie jar." 

"Where does the royal family live?" Hines asked the children.

"They live in a rainforest," one boy replied.

But according to another girl, "they live across the street."

According to People, the video included Hines' godsister, Ja'Bria McCullum, who is a regular in his TikTok videos. 

"How many people were in The Chicago 7?" Hines asked the little girl.

"500 hundred," she said with full confidence. 

Based on the reactions on social media, it appears that the children stole the Golden Globes. 

Some had to reach for the tissue after seeing the segment.

One box of tissue might not have been enough for some. 

It was especially the questions about Boseman that opened the floodgates.

The Black Panther actor, who was a hero to many people of all ages while he was alive, is apparently still touching lives and likely to continue to do so for many more years whenever his name is raised.

Boseman's widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepted the award Sunday on behalf of the 43-year-old cultural icon who died in August after a battle with colon cancer. 

"He would thank God. He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices," Ledward said while accepting the award, CBS News reported. "He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice inside all of you that tells you that 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."

As Blavity previously reported, history was made on Sunday when Andra Day received recognition for her portrayal of music legend Billie Holiday, becoming the second Black woman ever to win the award for best actress in a motion picture.
