On Tuesday night, the Golden Globe awards were handed out to deserving candidates. It was a night to remember for Marvel fans as Angela Bassett won the first-ever major award for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.’ This 64-year-old actress has now become the first actor ever to win a major individual award for MCU movies.
While receiving the award, Angela Bassett said, “I got to find my words. I’m so nervous. My heart is just beating.” She then went on with her speech and said:
“The late Tony Morrison said that your life is already a miracle of chance just waiting for you to order its destiny. But in order for that destiny to manifest, I think that it requires courage to have faith. It requires patience, as we just heard. And it requires a true sense of yourself. It’s not easy because the past is circuitous, and it has many unexpected detours, but by the grace of God, I stand here. I stand here grateful.”
Bassett thanked her husband and her co-stars. She also took time to thank the late Chadwick Boseman in her historic speech. Here is a video of her paying tribute to the spirit of Chadwick:
Apart from being the first award that she brought home for the Marvel universe, it was a great evening for her as well. She got her second Golden Globe award. In 1993, Bassett took home the award for the first time for her performance as Tina Turner in “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”
