Angela Bassett has finally won an Oscar Award.

 The actress received her Oscar at the 14th Annual Governor’s Awards on January 9.

Amid her influential television and film career and a 2023 award show upset, the Oscar distinction is long overdue.

In a June 2023 press statement, Academy representatives said: “Across her decades-long career, Angela Bassett has continued to deliver transcendent performances that set new standards in acting.” 

Actress Regina King presented Bassett with the Oscar Award at the Annual Governor’s Awards.
