Chadwick Boseman received four Screen Actors Guild Award nominations this year, a personal best for the late actor.

Only Jamie Foxx in 2005 and Maggie Smith in 2013 have received four nominations in one year in the award show’s 26-year history.

Boseman’s posthumous achievement was celebrated by his “Black Panther” co-star Michael B. Jordan on Friday, who shared an Instagram post with snapshots from his nominated films.
