“The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) announced today that” Angela Bassett will be one of four people to receive honorary Oscars at the 14th Governors Awards event on November 19, 2023.
Bassett will get this honor because of her “transcendent performances that set new standards for acting.” Two Academy Award nominations have been made for Bassett. In 2022, she was nominated for an Oscar for her role as Queen Ramonda in the movie “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
This year, Mel Brooks, Carol Littleton (an editor), and Michelle Satter (who will get the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award) will also get special Oscars.
Bassett has been working as an actress for a very long time and is very good at what she does. She has been the main character in a number of movies, including “What’s Love Got to Do with It,” “Boyz n the Hood,” “Malcolm X,” and “Waiting to Exhale.” She has also been a guest star on several other TV shows, like “American Horror Story” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Bassett got an honorary Oscar because of how talented she is and how much she has done for the film business. This was long overdue recognition for both of these things. She is a real hero, and the work she has done will keep inspiring people for many years to come.
Bassett said in a statement that she was “humbled and honored” to receive the award, and she used the word “humbled.” She said, “I’ve been very lucky to have a long career in both movies and TV.” “It’s been a lot of fun.” “The many talented people I’ve worked with over the years helped me get this award, and I’m grateful for their help.”
The 14th annual Governors Awards event will be held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California. Tracee Ellis Ross will be in charge of the event as its host.
