Angela Bassett: I wasn't robbed of Oscars success
Angela Bassett insists she wasn't robbed of success at the Oscars in the early 90s.
Angela Bassett remains philosophical about her lack of Oscars success.
The 64-year-old actress was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in 1993's 'What's Love Got to Do with It' - but she ultimately missed out on the accolade.
Asked if she felt "robbed", Angela told 'CBS Mornings': "Of course, in the moment you're hoping and praying and wishing [you'll win]. But I never ... I don't walk away thinking 'I've been robbed.'"
Angela - who has also received an Oscars nomination for her role in 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' - has moved on from her disappointment.
She reflected: "That's too negative of an emotion to carry with me for the rest of my life. I choose to believe there was a reason why it didn't happen."
Meanwhile, Angela recently promised that she will support her kids if they follow her into the movie business.
The Hollywood star - who has 17-year-old twins Bronwyn and Slater - insisted that she'll always support her children irrespective of what they do in their own careers.
Speaking about her kids' interests, Angela explained: "They want to follow the success, but whether it be acting, I don't get any clues to that right now. It's a little music, a little sports. But whatever they want to do, I support them."
Angela also revealed that she celebrated her success at the Golden Globe Awards with her two children.
The movie star - who won the Best Supporting Actress gong for her performance in 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' - shared: "I went home and hugged my kids. They were really excited for mom to bring home a statue."
