Many fans were rooting for Angela Bassett to take home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her incredible role in the film Black Panther Wakanda Forever, including her on-screen co-star and Creed III actors Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors.
After it was announced that Jamie Lee Curtis was the winner of the Best Supporting Actress category, Majors and Jordan took the stage as presenters to give the award for Best Cinematography. Once the gentleman reached the mic, they gave a very special shoutout to the legendary actress, with Jordan kicking it off by saying, “hey auntie,” referencing his character’s iconic line from the first Black Panther movie. Following MBJ’s lead, Majors then followed up with, “we love you” to show love to Angela Bassett from afar.
The subtle but heartwarming shoutout was met with cheers and applause from the audience and social media support from those who caught the reference as a way to show support for the actress after the category.
