Black Panther Best Picture Nod Brings Oscars Into MCU

first_img Wakanda Forever: New Fish Named After ‘Black Panther’ HomeThe Best ‘Avengers’ Toys Ten years after The Dark Knight’s infamous Oscar snub (among other things) caused the Academy to expand the Best Picture pool to ten potential nominees, a superhero movie, Black Panther, has finally been nominated for best movie period at the Academy Awards. All it took was a healthy dose of Afrofuturism and priming audiences to broaden their horizons… by giving the top prize to a movie about fish sex along with tons of other genre movies at last year’s Oscars.Along with Best Picture, Black Panther is also up for awards for its gorgeous costumes and production design, as well as its music composed in part with Kendrick Lamar. And of course T’Challa himself should appear in the “In Memoriam” section as the show airs before his inevitable resurrection in Avengers: Endgame.Other nifty news out of this year’s Oscars? Netflix finally has a Best Picture contender with Roma. Spike Lee has gotten his long overdue first nomination with BlackKkKlansman. With Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse up for best animated picture, two Black superheroes movies might win this year. But unfortunately Sorry To Bother You, the actual best movie of 2018, is nowhere to be found because it’s way too cool.Here’s your full list of 2018 Academy Awards nominees.
