The Oscar award comes more than 30 years after her Best Actress nomination for What’s Love Got to Do With It.

Oscar Awards announced on June 26th that Bassett will be receiving the honorary award at the 2024 Oscars, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

“The Academy’s Board of Governors is thrilled to honor four trailblazers who have transformed the film industry

and inspired generations of filmmakers and movie fans,” Janet Yang, the Academy president, said in a news release.

“Across her decades-long career, Angela Bassett has continued to deliver transcendent performances that set new standards in acting.”

She will be honored alongside Mel Brooks and Carol Littleton, with Michelle Satter receiving the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.”

Angela Basset first received her Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her captivating portrayal of the late icon Tina Turner in “ What’s Love Got To Do with It”.

Tina Turner died last month at age 83 but Basset portrayed her in the 1993 biopic. Unfortunately, Holly Hunter took home the prize that year for her performance in The Piano.

Earlier this year, Angela Basset made history as the first actor from a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to receive a nomination as a supporting actress.

The nomination came from her portrayal of a grieving Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Bassett lost again to Jamie Lee Curtis for Everything Everywhere All At Once, which had fans disappointed after her toned-down, crestfallen reaction to the loss went viral.

Angela Basset hasn’t spoken out about the viral moment but she remained optimistic that she would one day have a little gold man of her own.

The 64-year-old told USA Today in March that she would advise her younger self to remain patient about winning the coveted accolade.

“I’d probably say, ‘Just hang in there, girl,'” Bassett said. “‘Take care of yourself, be grateful, and just don’t give up.
