Angela Bassett said up front that it would be “very special” if she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Bassett was the first to receive an Oscar nomination for a role in a Marvel movie. Having already won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress, some say she was also the big nominee in the same category at the Academy Awards.

Unfortunately for her, however, she had to watch as Jamie Lee Curtis picked up the award for her role as Deirdre Beybeard in Everything everywhere at once. Also missing out were Hong Zhao, Kerry Condon and Stephanie Hsu. Unlike the other candidates, Bassett did not applaud when Curtis took to the podium.

Viewers quickly pointed out Bassett’s grim look when she heard her opponent’s name, not her own. “Angela Bassett wasn’t as happy with the winner, like her fellow nominees, as she should be,” one wrote on Twitter. Another person wrote: “Everyone says Angela Bassett should have beat Jamie Lee…she didn’t react athletically.”

But there are also fans who defend Bassett and think she deserves an Oscar. “I can see the pain and disappointment on her face. I wouldn’t applaud either if I worked decades not to win. Angela Bassett was robbed, and she deserved that award.” Many people also joke that they want to steal an Oscar to give it to her.
