SZA has spoken out in support of Angela Bassett, whose history of being snubbed at the Oscars continued on Sunday (March 12).

SZA’s tweet — which read: “Realizing Angela Basset [sic] doesn’t already have an Oscar make me wanna knock shit over” — was actually tweeted out prior to the 2023 Oscars.

However, Bassett still went home empty-handed on Sunday despite being nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The acclaimed actress was previously nominated for Best Actress at the 1993 Oscars for her portrayal of Tina Turner in What’s Love Got to Do with It, but lost out to The Piano‘s Holly Hunter.

Bassett’s latest Oscars loss was to Jamie Lee Curtis, who starred in the dominant Everything Everywhere All At Once. Bassett’s disappointment was visible as the winner was announced, and her reaction went viral on social media.

However, SZA wasn’t the only one who showed love to Angela Bassett. Creed III stars Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors also saluted the 64-year-old on the Oscars stage shortly after her defeat.

“Hey Auntie, we love you,” Majors said to Bassett in the crowd while presenting the award for Best Cinematography, to which Jordan nodded in agreement.

The 2023 Oscars were filled with plenty of memorable moments, including a powerful performance of “Lift Me Up” by Rihanna, marking her second major show in just over a month following her Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show in February.

Despite leaving the awards ceremony empty-handed, a pregnant RiRi was honored with a standing ovation from the audience after her performance. Her boyfriend A$AP Rocky was seen smiling from ear to ear while raising a glass of champagne and toasting to his talented partner.

The couple, who welcomed a son in May 2022, are expecting their second child together.

Dedicated to the late Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, who died of cancer aged 43 in August 2020, “Lift Me Up” was nominated for Best Original Song, marking Rihanna’s first Oscar nomination.

However, the song lost out to M. M. Keeravani, Chandrabose, Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava’s “Naatu Naatu,” from the Indian film RRR.

As for SZA, she is currently in the midst of her SOS Tour, and most recently brought out Cardi B and Phoebe Bridgers to perform alongside her at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
