Actor and director Michael B. Jordan, known for his performances as Warmonger in Black Panther (2018) and Adonis Creed in the Creed films, was just as surprised as anyone when Jamie Lee Curtis won the Oscar for Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022) over Bassett. Immediately, he was ready to let the world know about it.

Soon afterward, Jordan and his Creed III (2023) co-star Jonathon Majors crossed the stage, ready to present the Oscar for Best Cinematography. But before they did, you could hear Jordan saying, “Hey, Auntie,” to Bassett, followed by Majors saying, “We love you.”

“Hey, Auntie. We Love You.”

The art showcases iconic characters portrayed by Bassett, including Queen Ramonda from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022), Reva Deveraux in Boyz N The Hood (1991), and Tina Turner in What’s Love Got To Do With It (1993), which garnered her first Oscar nomination.
