And the best response award goes to…
“This morning got a little more special in the Bassett Vance family with the news of my Oscar nomination,” said the actress, who will take on a supporting role in Black Panther: Wakanda forever told E!. “What has drawn me to each of the women I have described throughout my career is their strength, compassion, resilience, and strength. Wakanda ForeverQueen Ramonda is a character that moves me because she is a mother and a leader who must care for her grieving nation as much as she cares for a bereaved family. Ramonda is a love letter that reflects and acknowledges what we women do every day. There’s so much to explore as an actress because it’s excellent storytelling, alongside loads of talent on and off camera.”
She continued, “I’m so grateful to the Academy for putting me in a great group of actresses. Congratulations to my colleague Wakanda Nominated forever – ryan cooler, Ruth E. Carter, Camille’s friend, Joel Harlow, Rihanna, stamp, Ludwig Göransson, Geoffrey Baumann, Craig hammock, R. Christopher White and Dan Sudick.
