Netizens are applauding Angela Bassett for her Golden Globe nomination.
Angela Bassett, an American actress, has landed notable roles in films such as Malcolm X, the Black Panther series, and Notorious, among others, and netizens noted the difference. This distinction is long overdue. Bassett was universally praised for her performance in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and fans were overjoyed when she was nominated for a Golden Globe. Some have noted that her regal portrayal of Ramonda, Sovereign Queen of Wakanda, was delicate and graceful, and theaters exploded when she appeared on screen.
Angela Bassett and co-star Letitia Wright (who plays Shuri/Black Panther) are considered to have saved the franchise with their performances. Many were skeptical about the movie before it came out because the late Chadwick Boseman set a precedent in the last movie as the superhero Black Panther. Bassett, on the other hand, smashed any skepticism with her breathtaking performance, as she has for decades.
