Exclusive: Angela Bassett on Being Honored This Award Season & “Did The Thing” Viral Moment

Published: Thursday 2nd Mar 2023 by Sam

Angela Bassett did the thing – and has been doing so for decades!

This award season has seen the legendary actress honored in earnest for her stunning performance as Queen Ramonda in ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.’

The latest accolade to be bestowed upon Bassett was the Best Supporting Actress Award at the AAFCA Awards 2023 in Los Angeles. In a sweet, full-circle moment, the prize was presented by producer, director, and Bassett’s ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ co-star  Vanessa Bell Calloway.

Prior to the star receiving the honor, That Grape Juice‘s Shar Jossell caught up with her on the red carpet – where she opened up about this season of “gratitude.” She playfully welcomed continued buzz around Ariana DeBose‘s now infamous BAFTA performance and the oh-so-apt lyric we’ve been singing since – “Angela Bassett Did The Thing”!
