Angela Bassett gets respect.
At the Oscars on Sunday night, “Creed III” co-stars Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors took the stage to present Best Cinematography.
But in the middle of their presentation, they took a moment to shout out the Oscar-nominated “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” star.
“Hey Auntie, we love you,” they said, taking a moment to appreciate the actress.

Bassett was indeed looking stunning at the Oscars, rocking a stunning purple dress.
The legendary actress was up for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the Marvel sequel, but lost the prize to Jamie Lee Curtis, who won for “Everything Everywhere All at Once”. It was the first nomination for both.
After her loss, Bassett appeared visibly disappointed, as many viewers noted on Twitter.
