Angela Bassett Feels She Was Robbed of an Oscar for ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’

Angela Bassett is as humble as they come, but sometimes you simply have to call a spade a spade.

On a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen shared a comment from a fan who believed Bassett was passed over for a Best Actress Oscar for her work in What’s Love Got to Do With It, in which  she starred as rock ‘n’ roll icon and domestic violence survivor Tina Turner.

Laughing, the actress replied, “Yeah, me too.”

“Good; I agree,” Cohen added.

Holly Hunter took home the gold for The Piano that year.
