Others, though, expressed hope that the actress would one day receive an Oscars trophy of her own. After all, it’s been nearly 30 years since she was first nominated for an Oscar for What’s Love Got to Do with It.
“Angela Bassett’s reaction to Jamie Lee Curtis’ name being called…you can tell how much that Oscar would have meant to her,” a user tweeted. “She is, was, and always will be incredible. I better see her on that stage SOON.”
