The Academy unveiled its 2019 Oscar nominations early Tuesday morning, with The Favourite and Roma leading all films with 10 nods apiece.

While that’s cool and all, the real story here is that Black Panther has 7 nominations including ‘Best Picture”.

Let’s all be honest here, out of the 8 contenders (BlacKkKlansman, Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, A Star Is Born, Vice) the only true winner here, is the King of Wakanda.

Personally, I thought Black Panther was snubbed at the recent Golden Globes event and while no disrespect to Queen and Bohemian Rhapsody, Black Panther is just fun, but also provides a lot of social commentaries.
I had the chance to watch all 8 films and frankly, it’s all quite boring and melodramatic. Topics and films I’ve seen one too many times (a bio pic, a black segregation pic, a musical/talent act trying to make it big, etc) that will have its chance to shine another time. No other film in history has the impact Black Panther has and it’s time the Academy recognizes that.

Black Panther stands on its own both in the Academy’s race for Best Picture as well as the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). Never before has a superhero movie been nominated for Best Picture. NEVER!
Not only did this movie do that but out of all it’s other contenders, it’s the only movie to make 1.3 billion dollars and place itself in the top ten grossing movies of all time!

As it exists in the MCU, it broke all kinds of records before… well.

This A-hole showed up

I mentioned before that the movie brought up a lot of social commentaries, but one topic that I’ve always debated with people is who was the villain here? Was Killmonger really that wrong in his outlook in life or was it a product of his environment and upbringing? Does poverty and being in the lower middle class warp your sense of right and wrong? All these questions went through my head after the movie. It made you want to talk about it, whether how cool the effects were or the topic of segregation.
But also… it got a bangin soundtrack provided by Kendrick Lemar.
