Greetings, fellow pop culture aficionados, and welcome to week 45 of ourI.C.Y.M.I.(In Case You Missed It) blog series, where we recap a handful of trending tidbits from the past week(s) in popular culture, in case you missed them.
The late Chadwick Boseman, who passed last September from colon cancer at age 43, made Screen Actors Guild Awards history this past week, becoming the first person to earn four SAG nominations in a single year. Boseman was recognized for his lead performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, the last film he starred in before his passing, and for his supporting role in Da 5 Bloods, plus double recognition in the Outstanding Ensemble category of both films.
In related film news, the Golden Globes also recently unveiled its list of 2021 nominees. Boseman was nominated there as well, for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama for his role in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
If you're interested in award season, make sure to mark your calendars: The SAG Awards ceremony airs on TNT and TBS at 6 p.m. PST on April 4, while the Golden Globes is set for 5 p.m. PST on February 28 with coverage on NBC.

KEXP Observes #InternationalClashDay
Our friends and Seattle Center neighbors at KEXP observed International Clash Day 2021 on Friday, February 5, honoring The Clash on air from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. PST. In addition to the music, the station dives into the band's influences and explores stories around the artists and the movements that share the Clash's ethos, as Joe Strummer said, "We're anti-fascist, we're anti-violence, we're anti-racist, and we're pro-creative. We're against ignorance."
For some reopening-weekend inspiration, we compiled some of the best submissions from the MoPOP community's response to our recent call for visitors to share their favorite photos taken at our museum.
Welcome to the Cookout! Throughout February, MoPOP will host (virtually!) its eighth annual Through the Eyes of Art event that brings together artists, community leaders, politicians, and tastemakers from across the state of Washington to celebrate the Black experience.
