Angela Bassett will receive an Academy Honorary Award at the Governors Awards Nov.18
At last, the iconic actress Angela Bassett will be recognized for her accomplishments in the entertainment field and will receive the Academy Honorary Award.
“The Academy’s Board of Governors is thrilled to honor four trailblazers who have transformed the film industry and inspired generations of filmmakers and movie fans,” said Academy President Janet Yang. “Across her decades-long career, Angela Bassett has continued to deliver transcendent performances that set new standards in acting. Mel Brooks lights up our hearts with his humor, and his legacy has made a lasting impact on every facet of entertainment. Carol Littleton’s career in film editing serves as a model for those who come after her. A pillar of the independent film community, Michelle Satter has played a vital role in the careers of countless filmmakers around the world.”
Bassett has embodied iconic roles and has made it to the nominations round of the Oscars but has fallen short with winning an Oscar. Bassett has done so much more than what society has recognized her for and on November 18, she will be recognized for her contributions.
