Angela Bassett took center stage at the 14th annual Governors Awards on Tuesday night, dazzling onlookers not just with her Dolce & Gabbana nude tulle dress but with the gleaming golden statuette she finally secured – her well-deserved Academy Award.

It has been almost three decades since Angela Bassett received her first Academy Award nomination for her powerful portrayal of Rock Queen Tina Turner in 'What’s Love Got To Do With It?,' and now, after years of outstanding performances, she has clinched her first official Oscar. This time, the nomination came for her regal performance as "Queen Ramonda" in 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.'

Despite her undeniable talent and consistent excellence, Bassett had been criminally overlooked on the Oscar stage until the Governors Awards decided to rectify this long-standing injustice. The prestigious event presented the seasoned actress with an honorary OSCAR, acknowledging her remarkable contributions to the world of film and television.

Academy President Janet Yang expressed admiration for Angela Bassett's illustrious career, stating in a press release, "Across her decades-long career, Angela Bassett has continued to deliver transcendent performances that set new standards in acting."

Bassett's victory is not only a personal triumph but also a momentous occasion for the industry, underscoring the importance of recognizing and honoring the enduring brilliance of artists who have left an indelible mark on cinema. As Angela Bassett finally holds her Academy Award high, the film community celebrates a well-deserved win for a true cinematic icon.
