Angela Bassett, actress. ....who should have won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her leading role in "What's Love Got To Do With It?".... just sayin'. However, she was the first African-American to win the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for the film.
l-o-t-r: "Well, Cate Blanchett. Her husband doesn’t know but she and I are going to get married quite soon. Which will surprise a lot of people. But you see, we only met at a party [during the making of ‘The Lord of the Rings’]... Here, we had a whole week, or maybe two. That was a thrill because she’s a great screen actor and a very congenial person, for me... So there wasn’t a moment that we didn’t have stuff to talk about.” Ian McKellen on reuniting w/ Cate Blanchett in The Hobbit
