Despite being the highest-grossing film franchise in the world, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is left wanting when it comes to recognition from the biggest industry bodies in Hollywood. This all changed when Angela Bassett took out the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Granted, this isn’t the only high-profile accolade Marvel’s numerous cinematic outings has earned, with 2018’s Black Panther (also featuring Bassett) bringing home Academy Awards for Best Costume Design, Best Score, and Best Production Design.
Still, Bassett’s swansong appearance as Queen Ramonda marks two firsts for Marvel films – the first Golden Globe, and the first time an actor or actress in the franchise has won one of the industry’s biggest awards. As such, it creates opportunity for further achievements.
