Michael B. Jordan Supports Angela Bassett After Her Reaction To Oscars Loss Goes Viral

Angela Bassett missed out on a Best Supporting Actress award on Sunday night, and her reaction to her loss caught the attention of viewers.

But later that night, Michael B. Jordan took to the stage at the 95th Oscars awards show, alongside Jonathon Majors and offered the actress a few words of support.

As it was announced that Everything Everywhere All at Once actress Jamie Lee Curtis took home the award, Bassett’s on camera reaction was breaking hearts everywhere, as she looked visible crushed by missing out.

Nominated for her role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, it’s not the first time the 64 year-old has found herself in a similar situation. – At the 1994 Oscars, Bassett was nominated for Best Actress for her role as Tina Turner in biopic What’s Love Got to Do With It?, but was beaten by Holly Hunter.

Jordan later got up with his Creed III co-star Jonathon Majors to present the Academy Award for Best Cinematography, and together they showed their support to Bassett.

Looking at her, they said “Hey Auntie, we love you.”

Many took to Twitter to also show their support to the Black Panther star, saying that how she handled the situation is completely justified.

”Angela Bassett’s reaction to Jamie Lee Curtis’ name being called…you can tell how much that Oscar would have meant to her. she is, was, and always will be incredible. I better see her on that stage SOON,” said one Twitter user.

”Angela Bassett should’ve won #Oscars I’m glad she didn’t fake a reaction to entertain idiots telling us how a Black woman should handle Hollywood once again throwing awards at White women. I like Jamie Lee Curtis but she didn’t outperform Angela Basset or Stephanie Hsu,” said another.

If Bassett did win the award, she would have made history as the first performer to do so based on a performance in a movie from the MCU.
