As previously reported, Bassett’s nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category for her performance in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever marked a first for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ultimately, the night’s award went to Jamie Lee Curtis, who gave a moving speech after taking home the honor for her performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once.
As fans know, Curtis’ win on Sunday came more than four decades after she made her feature film debut in John Carpenter’s franchise-launching slasher classic Halloween.
Later into the broadcast, Jordan and Majors both showed their appreciation for Bassett.
“Hey Auntie,” Jordan said, with Majors adding, “We love you.”
