Remember Angela Bassett in “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” “Eat the cake, Anna May!” Yes, the slight distressing yet game changing feature film garnered Bassett her first Golden Globe award. On Tuesday (Jan 10), for her depiction as Queen Ramonda in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the iconic actress snatched up another Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture. The significance of the win, however, is that Bassett has become the first actor to take home a Golden Globe award for a performance in a MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) motion picture. In her acceptance speech, the “Vampire In Brooklyn” actress commemorated the late Chadwick Boseman and dedicated her trophy to her Black Panther teammates.

“To my Marvel/Disney family… the cast and the crew… weeping may come in the evening, but joy comes in the morning,” said Bassett. “We embarked on this journey together. We loved, we mourned, we healed. And we were surrounded each and every day by the might and spirit of Chadwick Boseman. We showed the world what Black unity, leadership and love looks like, beyond, behind and in front of the camera.”

The “Malcolm X” star beat off stiff competition from Jamie Lee Curtis (Everything Everywhere All at Once), Carey Mulligan (She Said), Dolly De Leon (Triangle of Sadness), and Kerry Condon (The Banshees of Inisherin). Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe hopped on social media by the boatload to celebrate Bassett’s epochal victory. “Angela Bassett first mcu actor to win a Golden Globe. You better put some respect on her name,” tweeted one fan.

Another commented, “Angela Bassett becomes the first MCU actor to win a major golden globe award for her work in a Marvel movie. This is just astounding. HERSTORY MADE!” A third exuberantly posted: “ANGELA BASSETT JUST BECAME THE FIRST GOLDEN GLOBE WINNER FOR A MCU ROLE. BRAVOOOO!!!”.

We salute Angela Bassett for her monumental Golden Globe win and making Marvel history.
