Black Panther became the first superhero film in history to be nominated for Best Picture - Drama at the Golden Globes. The only other superhero film to become nominated was Deadpool in the other Best Picture category "Best Picture - Musical or Comedy".

It also got two other nominations, Best Original Score by Ludwig Göransson (First Superhero film nominated since Superman (1978)), and Best Original Song - "All the Stars".

This is huge news because the Academy Awards usually follows suit with their nominations. Not everything is 100%, but generally, you can predict the nominations the Academy will have with the Golden Globes.

I remember making this forum talking about Black Panther's Oscar chances, and everyone shit on me. Well, it is happening y'all. The Golden Globes does not even have categories for things like costume design, set design, hairstyling and makeup, sound design, sound mixing and cinematography, which Black Panther has high chances in. So we are looking at a potential 6-9 nominations for Black Panther at the Oscars.

Don't be upset that it is Black Panther this is happening to. Be happy the superhero genre is being recognized. I mean The Dark Knight is the film that single-handedly expanded the Best Picture nominees from 5 to 10 at the Oscars so more blockbusters like Black Panther could be recognized. It is now happening.

Anyway, if you're disappointed because Black Panther is overrated and shit like that at least be happy cuz the Avengers 4 trailer is tomorrow and the Far From Home trailer is Saturday. And Aquaman in 2 weeks. Great times for CBM fans.

OT: Cool, might not agree, but it's always nice to see CBMs getting representation. Also like MarvelandDCFan said, I don't remember a lot of really good movies this year tbh

I loved Black Panther. I personally think it's one of the best CBMs to date and top 3 for Marvel. Glad it got the nod.

Nice. It better win best soundtrack. The music in the film was amazing, MCU movies have extremely forgettable soundtracks outside the Avenger's themes. T'Challa's theme is pure greatness along with the Dora Milaje chant and Killmonger's trap scores.

@epicyon:

100% with you on that. Marvel movies tend to have forgettable scores but the music in Black Panther is amazing. It’s also incredibly unique, something never heard in a blockbuster before. It has so many African vibes with the rap in Killmongers theme to the traditional percussion of the Wakanda theme.

Hope it wins the GG and the Oscars

Hoping Into the Spider-Verse will win.

It has higher reviews than Incredibles 2 and it is way more unique, so I don’t see why it shouldn’t win. Honestly should be between Isle of Dogs and Into the Spider-Verse

If Spiderverse is as good as the critics on Rotten Tomatoes have claimed it is, it has a real shot at winning. But then again, both Disney and Pixar are really making it tough this year, either Ralph Breaks the Internet or Incredibles 2 could also win.

Pfft, is not about what is the actual best movies or base on merit, is about which has the bigger cash for advertisement and take the people out for lunch or a trip to disney. Not to mention lots of critic do not even bother watching animated movies unless its very popular or their kids like it. That how Big Hero 6 won instead of the superior movie, How to Train Your Dragon 2. Not to mention is a comicbook movie.

Hopefully I am wrong, and Spiderman Edge to the Spiderverse win if its as good as the critic reviews of it. Also note I am talking about the Oscar, which the Oscar in the past have just copy and paste the Golden Globe animation nominee.

At least the nominee is a lot stronger than the last two years nomination.

@jashro44: True more like action/thriller or something but I don't see anything so dramatic about BP, it's more of a thrilling film than a drama.

I can see some elements of a drama. Killmonger's whole story is a drama. And for me Killmonger's character was the highlight of black panther. To be clear I am not saying it deserves the reward or not. I don't see a lot of movies, so I don't really know what other dramas are out there.

My main issue was the winter soldier being put on the same level as Logan or the dark knight. It was one of the better MCU films but I don't think it deserves any rewards for anything aside from action. Like I guess it did good with Steve's character but I don't really remember what the plot of the winter soldier was. Something about Hydra infiltrating SHIELD and stealing everyones data. Steve had a good character arc but that's really it for story telling IMO.

Well, yeah. I agree with that but it's not on groundbreaking level yet it's a good drama.

No problem, as a movie buff I'm telling you BP and Killmonger have a good drama but nothing fantastic.

Of course.

well, for me it's the best since MCU for me is more like 2-hour-long trailers with mindless action for another trailer. Aside from action its Visuals was great too.

No one does LOL.

They actually copied Metal Gear Solid elements and some plots of it for their Hydra-SHIELD conspiracy.

True.

Very clearly I wasn't even calling everyone who don't like that film part of the alt-right community, I was just referring to the alt-right community. At no point was I saying "anyone who don't like the film is alt-right".

And funny you guys had to make that logical deduction (Not that I am trying to imply anything about which community you belong to though), because I myself rolled my eyes at this nomination, probably more than you did. I don't like the idea of this nomination for different reasons than the alt-right did though.

Clearly these members of the alt-right didn't understand the ending message delivered by the eponymous character in that film.

Also, not all members of the alt-right agree with each other, I could be generalizing by calling them all united in my post, but if I had to be specific I am talking about the bigoted members in that community.

I do actually relate to some of the ideas listed on this picture, but as Ben Shapiro said, the alt-right community in general is embarrassing him.

@germanx: The alt right consists of like a couple of racists each state judging by there rally numbers... and chan culture trolls.

I really don't think they are the droids you are looking for.

Alot of times when I here people complaining about the "alt right" I take look at the stance of the supposed racists and realize "Oh so you mean just plain old right wingers right?"

Lately I keep seeing people intentionally stretch to the term "Alt right" into any right winger who consumes alternate media... which just does not have the same meaning as the racists man, it's unintentionally deceptive at best.
