*Last night was Hollywood’s biggest night!

Yes, we’re speaking of the Oscars. But for some, it was also the biggest night of disappointments. 

The culture was rooting for Angela Bassett since her nomination was announced back in January. After seeing her captivating performance in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” fans were sure she would be taking home a statute this year. All of the actors in the category for Best Supporting Actress had great performances.

But fans felt it was Bassett’s time especially after being snubbed for her role as Tina Turner in “What’s Love Got To Do With It.” Unfortunately, she did not win at last night’s Oscars, the award went to Jamie Lee Curtis instead.

After the loss,presenters, Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors showed their support to Bassett before presenting. Jordan acknowledged her with a, “hey auntie!” His infamous line from “Black Panther.” Jonathan followed up with “we love you!” As we all do!
