Jamie Lee Curtis was announced as Best Supporting Actress for her role in Everything Everywhere all at Once at last night's Oscars awards ceremony. Angela Bassett was considered the front runner for her role in Black Panther: Wakanda. Once the Oscar awards' presenter announced Jamie Lee Curtis as the winner cameras caught Angela's solid face with no reaction really but you could feel the hurt in the cold face turn. Angela didn't bust a smile nor clap.
The internet has memorialized black hollywood royalty with Angela's reaction going viral in disbelief. Bassett's career is full of a vast variety of performances that have touched the big screen. Roles in movies like, Waiting to Exhale, Tina Turner in What's Love Got To Do With It, to Queen Ramonda in Black Panther.
