While on the Oscars red carpet, Mary J. Blige told Zuri Hall of E! News what her favorite part of the night was. It wasn’t receiving two nominations from The Academy for Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Song in Mudbound.
“I saw some of the cast from Black Panther, which made me really excited…It was an honor to let them know…to let Chadwick [Boseman] know and Lupita[Nyong’o] know just how amazing that film is and what it means to us.”
Since the singer is now being recognized for her acting, Blige was asked if she could see herself starring in a movie like Black Panther, she excitedly responded, “I hope so!”
