Golden Globes: Marvel fans celebrate as Angela Bassett wins first prize for an MCU performance

Angela Bassett is the first actress to win a Golden Globe for a performance in a Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film.

The 64-year-old star took home the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for her role last year Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Bassett beat Kerry Condon (The Banshees by Inisherin), Jamie Lee Curtis (Everything everywhere at once), Dolly de Leon (triangle of sadness) and Carey Mulligan (she said) take home the prize.

Accepting the award, she said, “To my Marvel/Disney family… the cast and crew… the crying may come in the evening but the joy comes in the morning. We embarked on this journey together. We have loved, we have mourned, we have healed. And we were surrounded every day by the power and spirit of Chadwick Boseman.

“We showed the world what black unity, leadership and love look like beyond, behind and in front of the camera.”

Marvel fans took to social media to share their excitement over the win.

“For Angela Bassett to become the first MCU actress to win a Golden Globe — and a major acting award — for her work in a Marvel film is the greatest thing that has ever happened,” wrote journalist Nora Dominick.

“Angela Bassett is the first MCU actress to win a Golden Globe. You better show some respect to her name,” one person wrote.

The Independent also blogs live here about the Golden Globes ceremony and its aftermath.

This year’s Golden Globes ceremony is the first to be televised in two years after a high-profile scandal surrounding the Globes’ organizer, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

Many high-profile celebrities have boycotted the Globes in the last two years after one LA times Exposé pointed to a lack of diversity among the voting members of the HFPA. (It didn’t have a single black member in its ranks at the time.)

In addition to the diversity scandal, the organization has also been criticized for “ethical failings” in its business practices.
