LOS ANGELES – Angela Bassett became the first Marvel Cinematic Universe star to receive an Academy Award nomination on Tuesday (January 24) for playing Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

After being nominated for Best Supporting Actress, Bassett paid tribute to the character she played.

“Ramonda, Queen of Wakanda Forever, is a character that touched my soul because she is a mother and a leader who has to care for her grieving nation as much as she cares for her family in mourning.” Bassett said in a statement.

Bassett is a frontrunner at the Oscars ceremony on March 12, and has already won a Golden Globe and a Critics’ Choice Award for the role. The film earned him four other nominations, including visual effects and costume design.

Bassett was previously nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for playing Tina Turner in the biopic What’s Love Got To Do With It.

Disney’s “Black Panther” sequel set a November record in the United States and Canada with ticket sales of nearly $330 million.

In the sequel, the script will change after actor Chadwick Boseman died of cancer in 2020 just before filming began, and King T’Challa will die in the opening.


Marvel decided not to recast T’Challa. Instead, writer-director Ryan Coogler created a script that puts the female characters at the forefront.

“Ramonda is a love letter that reflects and acknowledges what we women do every day,” Bassett said.

Her nominations include director Martin Scorsese and Quentin TarantinoMarvel movies are not real movies.

“I feel more like theme parks than movies, because I’ve known and loved them all my life. I don’t think they’re movies, after all.” Written by Scorsese In the New York Times in 2019, ignite the backlash.

Despite such criticism, the first Black Panther won three Academy Awards after being nominated seven times for Oscars in 2019, including the first Best Picture for a superhero film.

In addition to Bassett, the nominees include Hong Chau of The Whale, Kerry Condon of “The Banshees of Inisherin”, and Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu of Everything Everywhere All at Once.
