There’s like. There’s love. And then there’s Jamie Lee Curtis’s review of Ariana DeBose’s rap at the BAFTAs.
As followers of social media now know, DuBose inserted a rap that name-checked some of the BAFTA Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominees, to wit: “Angela Bassett did the thing, Viola Davis, my Woman King / Blanchett Cate, you’re a genius, Jamie Lee, you are all of us.”
The results drew mixed reviews, causing DuBose to briefly pull away from social media before returning and joining in the good-natured ribbing, posting some of her favorite takes on her performance.
Count Curtis as a fan. She reflected on DeBose’s performance during an exclusive Deadline interview at the Producer’s Guild of America awards, giving her enthusiastic take on the talked-about moment.
