Angela Bassett made history on Tuesday night by garnering a Marvel movie its first Golden Globe. Bassett took home the "Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture" award for her role as Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

“I got to find my words. I’m so nervous. My heart is just beating,” Bassett said. “The late Tony Morrison said that your life is already a miracle of chance just waiting for you to order its destiny. But in order for that destiny to manifest, I think that it requires courage to have faith. It requires patience, as we just heard. And it requires a true sense of yourself. It’s not easy because the past is circuitous and it has many unexpected detours but by the grace of god I stand here. I stand here grateful.”

In 1993, Bassett took home the award for best actress in a musical or comedy for the Tina Turner biopic What's Love Got to Do With It.
