Angela Bassett Stans Stand Up!

I received a comment from "Simoniquea -pissed off BassettHound" today that disputed the comment I made in yesterday's post about Angela Bassett. I agree wholeheartedly that Angela has more talent in her little finger than most of Hollywood. And believe it or not, I am not a huge fan of Halle Berry's acting...."Monster's Ball" would have been infinitely much, much, much, more interesting if Angela was playing the lead role instead of Halle. But even though she was happy at the Academy Awards for Halle, and posed for pictures, I do believe she probably thought she was robbed in the aftermath. I do stand by the things I said about her referring to Halle, though she never said her name directly; it was reported several times over.

Believe me, Simoniquea, if I could put Angela Bassett in every role that Halle ever played (even Catwoman) I would! Maybe that is the thing.....take more risks! I actually loved her in "A Vampire in Brooklyn".

Here is the link for all things Angela Bassett....enjoy!

Alright I can see your point. Anybody can smile and act happy for the cameras but Angela and Halle were and still are friends, before and after this whole Oscar thing in 2002. I dont think any of her smiles were fake. She probably does feel robbed, but none of that has anything to do with Halle.

Yes this was reported several times over but it was all coming from one source, a Newsweek article that totally misquoted Angela, but even in that article Angela had nothing but kind words towards Halle. I know for sure the quote you used in yesterday's post, Ang didnt say.


p.s. I couldnt agree with you more about the 'take more risks' comment. Even the best actor has to risk it sometimes...

There is no way Angela would have been better than Halle in that role for it was just not meant for her to do. Halle first of all is more diverse, present and authentic than Angela.

Angela Bassett is amazing. I hope she gets respect for her new work which Halle Berry's not in, The Bible Experience. Says something about the real talent, I think.
