The people in Dolby Theater were quite happy with Jamie Lee Curtis’ win at the 95th Academy Awards for the best supporting actress and even cheered loudly as she went on stage to receive the same. However, some people were unhappy with Angela Bassett’s reaction or lack thereof.

The ABC telecast shows that even when Bassett was sitting on the first row she didn’t stand up to clap like the others and kept a blank expression on her face. One user tweeted that even if Angela Bassett didn’t win the Oscar she could have clapped for the winner. Just because she herself didn’t win, she could have clapped for the winners.

While the other user tweeted that Angela Bassett could have lost gracefully. She didn’t have to sit there with a scowl looking pissed. Another one write, ‘Angela Bassett not standing up for Jamie Lee Curtis is kinda shady. I get you’re upset for not winning but damn’. Neither Bassett nor Curtis have made any official comment about the same.

The other section of Twitter is upset that Angela Bassett was snubbed at the Oscars yet again. They even appreciated her real reaction rather than faking excitement for Curtis.
