Angela Bassett has won best supporting actress for her role in “Black Panther, Wakanda Forever.”
Jennifer Hudson read her name aloud as the winner, saying “Angela Basset baby!”
Bassett had a speech ready on her phone, saying that courage, faith, and patience are required in a life with many unexpected detours.
“I stand here grateful,” she told the crowd, thanking producers, her team, and quoted her mother as saying, “good things come to those who pray.”
She thanked Marvel and Disney, the cast and the crew for embarking on the movie journey together.
Finally, she remembered the late Chadwick Boseman, and thanked the Marvel fans for the love.
“Weeping may come in the evening, but joy comes in the morning. We embarked on this journey together. With love, we mourned, we loved, we healed and we were surrounded each and every day by the light and the spirit of Chadwick Bosman,” she said. “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.”
