First response from Angela Bassett after winning the Golden Globes


Angela Bassett

Actress Angela Bassett becomes the first actress to win a major award for a Marvel movie at the Golden Globes, where Bassett won Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in an Action Film for her role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, where she played the character Queen Ramonda.

This is Bassett's second nomination and second win, following her win in 1994 when she won Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for What's Love Got To Do It.

“On January 22nd, 1994, I stood on this podium and received a Golden Globe for What’s Love Got To Do It,” Bassett said in her victory speech. I think faith takes courage, it takes patience, it takes a true sense of yourself, it's not easy because the past is not straightforward, and it has many unexpected turns, but thank God I'm standing here, I'm standing here grateful."

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever follows Queen Ramonda, Shuri, Mbako, Okoye, and Dora Milaje as they fight to protect the kingdom of Wakanda from meddling world powers in the aftermath of King T'Challa's death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must unite together with the help of War Dog. Nakia and Everett Ross and forging a new path for their nation.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever stars Tinoc Huerta, Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong'o, Danny Gurira, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, Michaela Coyle, Richard Schiff.

Letitia Wright plays Shuri in the superhero movie, who is injured while performing a stunt and needs more time to recover in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Angela Bassett

American actress born on August 16, 1958, New York - USA.


I grew up in Harlem. Bassett's surname comes from her ancestor William Henry Bassett, who took the surname of his former master, and whose children later founded the village of Bassett in Virginia. Ten months after Bassett's birth, her mother became pregnant with her second child, Bassett's sister, Denette. Pregnancy "made things more difficult," says Bassett. Bassett's parents then "sent her" to stay with her aunt, and while her aunt did not have any children of her own, she "loved children, and was good to them".
