Angela Bassett has made some Marvel-lous history at the 80th Golden Globes!
The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star who accepted the trophy for Best Supporting Actress during the ceremony at the Beverly Hilton, has become the first performer to win a Golden Globe in an acting category for their role in a Marvel film!
That’s right. No other Marvel actors have done this before!
In her acceptance speech, she shared words of love for the late, great Chadwick Boseman who starred in the original Black Panther before passing away from cancer in 2020.
“We mourned, we loved, we healed and we were surrounded each and every day by the light and the spirit of Chadwick Boseman,” she said of working on set.
“We have joy in knowing that with this historic ‘Black Panther’ series, it is part of his legacy he helped lead us to, we showed the world what Black unity, leadership and love looks like beyond, behind and in front of the camera.”
She also took a moment to thank the millions of Marvel fans around the world for embracing these stories.
“We just made history with this nomination and with this award. It belongs to all of you and all of us.”
This is Angela’s second Globe – she won Lead Actress back in 1993 for her role in What’s Love Got To Do With It about music icon Tina Turner.
