For the 95th Academy Awards, Bassett looks back on her career Speaking to “CBS Morning” co-host Gayle King about her devastating loss in 1994.
“Now you hope, you pray, you hope, but I won’t walk away thinking, ‘I got robbed,'” Bassett said. “It’s just too much negative emotion to live with me for the rest of my life.”
