ANGELA DEFIES AGE

Bassett shared two pictures from the Awards Night, the first one highlighting her beautiful green outfit, which she accessorized with a sequined green clutch bag and matching green strappy heels. 

In another photo, she posed alongside Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, who looked gorgeous in a patterned Mary Katrantzou gown. The "Truth Hurts" hitmaker was also a nominee and winner that night, for "Entertainer of the Year."

AN ALL-AROUND ACTRESS

Angela Bassett is one of Hollywood's veteran actresses, and she's one of those that make sure she gives back to the community for all the blessings she's received.

A GENEROUS FAMILY

Dressed in casual clothes and protective aprons, the Bassett family went down to business at a cafeteria to distribute food to others. Of their experience, she said:

"Hey everybody, you good? Instagam, socks, underwear, toiletries, money, and prayers! These are some beautiful folks. We are all a family when we get right down to it. #UnionRescueMission #GivingIsBetterThanGetting"

A CHAMPION OF MANY CAUSES

This is only one of the many organizations that the actress has partnered with, as she is also passionate about good health, particularly working with the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association. 

It comes with no surprise that at 61-years-old, Angela's career still blossoms. Whenever she's not busy with her multiple projects, she's out helping other people, and good karma just continues to flow her way because of it.
