The actor took to Twitter to post a sweet collage of Angela Bassett, his Black Panther: Wakanda Forever co-star. The image celebrated her 40-year career, featuring some of her best-known roles.

Fans expected Bassett to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Queen Ramonda, but the award went to Jamie Lee Curtis for her performance Everything, Everywhere All At Once instead. Jordan’s touching gesture came after Bassett received criticism for the sad expression on her face when she did not win the award.  

The actor’s affectionate post inspired an Angela Bassett appreciation thread, with Fox Sports analyst Emmanuel Acho also offering uplifting words.

April Reign, the founder of the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag, also had praise.

An awed fan posted a clip of Bassett on the red carpet in her showstopping Moschino gown and Bulgari diamonds, talking about what a vision she was.

Of course, the love fest would have been incomplete without a fan posting Ariana De Bose’s viral lyric, “Angela Bassett did the thing.”

Bassett was nominated for an Academy Award in 1993 in the Best Actress category when she played music legend Tina Turner in the film What’s Love Got To Do With It. 

Some of the entertainment industry’s best-known talents have been nominated for Oscars and left empty-handed, including Michaelle Williams, Albert Finney, Glen, Close, and Peter O’Toole. As baffling as it may be for her to lose out, at least she’s in good company.
