Angela Bassett Becomes First Oscar-Nominated Marvel Actress

Angela Bassett has gone where no Marvel character has gone before. On Tuesday the star received a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nomination for her role as Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The historic nod made her the first woman, the first person of color and the first Marvel Studios actor to be nominated for an Oscar for their performance in a comic book adaptation.

At 64, she is the second oldest black woman to be nominated for an acting Oscar, following Ruby Dee, who was nominated for her role in 2007’s American Gangster at the age of 84.

She has already picked up wins for her performance at the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards.

Additionally, the Yale University graduate has been nominated for an NAACP Image Award, a Screen Actors Guild award and a British Academy of Film and Television Arts award.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever picked up four other nominations including Best Makeup and Hair, Best Costume Designs, Best Visual Effects, and Best Song for Lift Me Up, co-written and performed by Rihanna.

This was Angela’s second Oscar nomination. She was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance as Tina Turner in What’s Love Got To Do With It?
