Angela Bassett could not get an Oscar and she was not happy about it
After the surprise win, many people supported Bassett. It was obvious she was not happy about the result and she did not hide it which was seen as genunie by many. Many supported the actor's decision to "not pretend to be excited". “Angela Bassett's reaction was genuine,” one fan wrote.
One fan wrote, "Angela Bassett deserves an Oscar, and everybody knows it," continued: "Don't get me wrong, Jamie Lee Curtis has outstanding work but Angela's Oscar is VERY late and it's sad to see her face being disrespected. She had a calm expression on her face when she lost. She's incredible. DEATH RIGHT."
