Sunday’s Oscar ceremony produced a number of positive talking points on an otherwise successful night celebrating the best of everything film.
One movie that was mentioned on the regular throughout the night and indeed for the last few months, is Black Panther.
The latest Marvel release received incredible critic reviews and fan reaction as well as offering a voice for diversity in film.
Furthermore, legendary director Christopher Nolan offered his thoughts on the movie on Deadline’s Oscar round-up, claiming that he believes “Black Panther will among the Best Picture nominees in 2019”.
Although a superhero movie has never been nominated for an Oscar outside of the technical awards before, Logan broke that duck this year when it was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Additionally, there was plenty of suggestion that Wonder Woman would be nominated for a big prize, though that never surfaced.
Deadline claimed that a Disney executive had spoken about how hard they were pushing for Black Panther to be nominated, while another Disney contender comes in the shape of Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt.
