You was robbed of many Oscars. I'm your biggest fan. #Angela Bassett you look good for a 60 year old. Here's a clip from one of my favorites movies by her. Waiting to Exhale. Regrann from @afroether - “Born in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City on August 16, 1958, Angela Bassett is known for her many dramatic roles in films, television and on stage. Encouraged by a teacher, Bassett went on to study at Yale on a scholarship, earning a B.A. in Afro-American Studies and an M.F.A. in drama. Despite her early success on stage, Bassett had to work hard to break through the stereotypical roles usually assigned to African-American women on screen.
In 1991, she had a key role in John Singleton’s seminal anti-gang film, Boyz ‘N the Hood. A year later, she landed the role of Katherine Jackson in The Jacksons: An American Dream. Bassett continued taking on strong female roles by portraying Betty Shabazz in Spike Lee’s Malcolm X. She turned in an outstanding performance in her breakthrough role as Tina Turner in What’s Love Got To Do With It? Bassett costarred with Whitney Houston in the adaptation of Terry McMillan’s Waiting To Exhale in 1995. In 1998 she headlined another McMillan adaptation, How Stella Got Her Groove Back.” (Biography.com)
