The Late Chadwick Boseman receives a posthumous Emmy nomination for his role in the Marvel Animated Disney+ series What If…?. The Actor used to play the role of T’Challa aka Black Panther in The Marvel Cinematic Universe and even spearheaded the 2018 movie of the same name. In the series also, he voiced the character of T’Challa who is actually Star-Lord owing to a different storyline in the series.
Chadwick Boseman in MCU:
Chadwick Boseman was first introduced in MCU as Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War. Then after that, he went on to spearhead his 2018 solo movie which was highly praised by the audiences as well as the critics.
Following the movie, Black Panther also appeared in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame to help the other Avengers fight the mad titan Thanos. Later the Wakandan King was also set to appear in a sequel to the 2018 movie but unfortunately, we lost the Message From The King actor to Colon Cancer, and the next Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will re-establish the character of Black Panther although there’s no news about it yet.

Chadwick Boseman received an Emmy Nomination for his role in the What If…? series. This shows that Boseman’s legacy persists long after his death still few fans are unhappy with it as they don’t think that the Animated show had anything remarkable in it and though the late actor has always aced the role still it’s not Emmy-worthy.
He’s only been nominated for this because he’s dead. A pity nomination is a slap in the face.

Clearly he does but his preformence in what if does not deserve a nomination nothing on what if does

I liked the show… but this seems more like a pity nomination. There was nothing crazy or outstanding about any performance on that show.

Really? I mean, he was OK in What If but I wouldn't necessarily say Emmy worthy. It was fine. Nothing more, nothing less.

I loved What If? But not once was I like, man, Chadwick might win a Emmy for this, this is amazing!! It’s good and all but Emmy?!?

Great actor. But he wasn’t even the best character in this episode. Nor was the payoff of him being Star-Lord really fun.

It is evident that although he was a great star and loved by all, they are not happy as they think it mostly as a “pity nomination” and not something special.
The Emmy Nominations bring the Heath Ledger back:
Quite unfortunately Chadwick Boseman’s Emmy Nomination has led some people to compare it with The Dark Knight fame Heath Ledger’s Oscar moment. But it can’t be overlooked that Heath Ledger’s world-class performance as the insane Joker is even out of comparison. Comparing it with What If is purely irrelevant and it demeans the Late actor’s performance.
