Looking through I couldn't find any award in support of "Secure
Boot" related work, would you mind pointing me to it?

The FSF seems to have a very clear position on "Secure Boot" vs.
"Restricted Boot", and has been running a campaign opposing "Restricted
Boot" for the best part of this decade:

AFAIK, the only thing the FSF said is that when implemented correctly,
Secure Boot" is designed to protect the user against malware. They urged
manufacturers to respect user freedoms when implementing "Secure Boot"
by doing it correctly.

How you interpret this as support for "Secure Boot"?
