Oscar-worthy Movie: What's Love Got to Do With It? (1993)
Transformative roles often guarantee Oscars for actors. That wasn't the case of Angela Bassett, however, who remarkably embodied the great Tina Turner in the biopic What's Love Got to Do With It?, earning herself a Golden Globe.
The versatile actress hasn't landed a role as meaty since then, but that's not to say she's lost her, um, groove. She's simply kept herself busy with more lighthearted fare. Here's to hoping she'll make a comeback worthy enough to be noticed by the Academy.
