Angela Bassett Accepts Honorary Oscar.

Angela Bassett received an honorary Oscar and she was delighted about the achievement. She thanked her fans for their “decades and decades” of support

The 65-year-old actress received the accolade on Tuesday, January 9, when she confessed to feeling “humbled” by the recognition.

After receiving her gong, Angela said: “It’s been decades, right? Decades and decades, roles and roles, and blessings upon blessings. To the fans who’ve gone to see the movie and support it, I felt the love. I’m getting chills now, but I felt the love all these years. I mean, they have prayed, they have fussed, they have written, they have had my back. So it feels really satisfying to receive this. I’m humbled.”

The Emmy Award-winning star first received acclaim playing music superstar Tina Turner in the 1993 biopic ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It?’
