Angela Bassett holding Austin Butler’s hand at the Oscars goes viral

A video of actress Angela Bassett holding Austin Butler’s hand at the 2023 Oscars has gone viral.

The 95th Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, took place on Sunday March 12th at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

Bassett, 64, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at the ceremony but ultimately lost to Jamie Lee Curtis, who won for her role Everything everywhere at once.

Butler, meanwhile, was nominated for an Oscar for his role as Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s film elvis.

The 31-year-old former The Carrie Diaries star faced stiff competition in his category as he was nominated against Colin Farrell, Bill Nighy, Paul Mescal and front runner Brendan Fraser.

The viral moment was captured when it came time to present the Best Actor Oscar, with actresses presenting Jessica Chastain and Halle Berry.

As the best actor nominations were announced, the camera panned to Bassett and Butler sitting next to each other, holding hands.

The clip of the couple was then posted by a fan on Twitter, alongside the caption: “Angela Bassett holds Austin Butler’s hand while he’s nervous…is exactly the kind of woman I imagined,” alongside a love heart emoji.

At the time of writing, the sweet footage has been viewed over 258,000 times and liked over 3,500 times.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
