Angela Bassett


On Tuesday, Angela Bassett was nominated for an Oscar in the category of Best Supporting Actress for her role as Queen Ramonda in 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.' Bassett is considered to be the favorite to win after recently winning the Critics Choice and Golden Globe Awards.

The 2023 Golden Globes featured some of the best and brightest in film and television, and Black stars stood out among them with thrilling wins. The awardees included Angela Bassett, Quinta Brunson and Tyler James Williams and Zendaya. Eddie Murphy also recieved the Cecil B. DeMille award for his prestigious career.

The 16-year-old son of Angela Bassett made a remorseful video apology after his prank video faking the death of actor & her 'Black Panther' cast mate Michael B. Jordan went viral on TikTok. Slater Vance made the video on New Year's Eve as part of a "celebritydeathprank” trend.

It’s a long-running joke within the Black community that not all folks look alike, but that didn’t stop the vaunted New York Times for making a major gaffe in that department. The newspaper confused actress Angela Bassett with former President Trump crony Omarosa.

The Black Panther movie hasn’t even started filming but it’s already personifying Black excellence on elite levels. The great Angela Bassett has joined the cast of the highly anticipated movie.

Like the Aaliyah biopic, Lifetime is witnessing its share of drama with their Whitney Houston movie as well.

The tumultuous life of music icon Whitney Houston is coming to the big screen and unlike the Tupac biopic, there wasn’t a lengthy time period in picking the lead role.

If you recall, Angela Bassett and the late Whitney Houston co-starred together in the classic Waiting to Exhale romantic drama (1995). Today, we learn the Oscar nominee has partnered up with Lifetime to direct a movie based on Houston’s life.
