For Marvel, it’s a historic victory!
Angela Bassett, the star of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, took up the Best Supporting Actress award at the 80th Golden Globes on Tuesday.
For her performance as Queen Ramonda in the Marvel Studios film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Angela Bassett received her second Golden Globe nomination. Kerry Condon (The Banshees of Inisherin), Jamie Lee Curtis (Everything Everywhere All at Once), Dolly De Leon (Triangle of Sadness), and Carey Mulligan (She Said) were Bassett’s competitors, and her victory made her the first actor to win a Golden Globe for a Marvel production.
After a four-year struggle with colon cancer, the actor who played T’Challa, Chadwick Boseman, passed away at the age of 43, two years after the release of Black Panther and T’Challa’s appearance in the movies Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War. Shuri took over as Black Panther after Marvel decided against recasting T’Challa.
Based on a screenplay that he and Joe Robert Cole co-wrote, Ryan Coogler directed Wakanda Forever. The movie features Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, and Lupita Nyong’o. Other cast members include Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tenoch Huerta, and Michaela Coel.
