Angela Bassett Recalls Her ‘Disappointment’ With Oscars Snub

Many were outraged when Bassett lost the Best Supporting Actress category to Jamie Lee Curtis last year. Bassett was up for her performance in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” but lost to Curtis for her co-starring role in “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” In January, Bassett accepted an Honorary Academy Award at the 14th Governors Awards.

However, now she’s getting candid in an OWN Spotlight with Oprah Winfrey about the “disappointment” she felt losing the Best Supporting Actress Oscar to Curtis last year.

“I thought I handled it well. And that was my intention, to handle it very well,” she shared.

“It was, of course, a supreme disappointment. And disappointment is human. I was disappointed and I handled it like a human being. I was [gracious] for myself and my children who were there with me.”

“This was an opportunity for her to stand up there. A lot of people saw it, but not the billion people that would see it at the Oscars. But it meant everything to her.”

“One of the things that always that I say to myself and to my kids is, ‘Find the good and praise it,’” she said.
