Yea, I’m not going to hold my breathe on this one’s Oscar chances until later in the year. I still think this will have a much harder climb than Get Out, due to it being a superhero film and Marvel. I know the Dark Knight broke through in a sense, but that movie played more like a drama than an action film, which judging by Black Panther’s trailer, it seems more action based.
Regardless, I think this looks really entertaining and will be this year’s early blockbuster a la Beauty and the Beast this past year.
I can’t form an opinion on the acting until I see it.February 7, 2018 at 8:57 am #1202489350
Woah guys let’s not go overboard here, this won’t come anywhere close to a directing or acting nom. Hopefully some tech nods, maybe if it’s actually as good as the reviews say then Adapted Screenplay, I don’t know how that category is looking for next year but if it’s weak again, maybe. I’m still hesitant about the movie, Marvel has been disappointing me again and again. Supposedly this one doesn’t totally follow the usual formula so it’s the first marvel movie I’ve been excited to see in years.
Genre prejudice shouldn’t discourage the studio, fans, nor pundits about its eventual award season recognition.
How can you say that? Of course genre bias will have an effect, people should recognize that, at least pundits who predict Oscars for a living. That being said, it would be great if the studio gave it a legit Oscar campaign and I’m fine with fans stanning for it but there’s no need to be absolutely delusional and start talking about it’s BP chances. A superhero movie like this needs to actually prove itself before we start about its Oscar chances as anything more than wishful thinking.February 7, 2018 at 9:07 am #1202489361
If reviews stay at this level, it has to be a Best Picture contender in the expanded field. It looks on course to overtake Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight as the most critically well recieved live action superhero film in history.
Release date isn’t ideal for BP odds, but Get Out was a Feburary genre release as well, so I don’t think it’s a dealbreaker.
Early releases that hold throughout a year builds strong backing consensus. While other movies during awards time people are having to make swift judgments on.February 7, 2018 at 9:11 am #1202489362

This is not wish fulfillment on my end. Barriers are being broke all the time in the entertainment business. And a nomination for a critically acclaimed and culturally significant superhero movie will eventually happen in an expanded Best Picture field. And Ryan Coogler is a writer-director with three solid first pictures out the gate. I say don’t be pessimistic about its chances this early.February 7, 2018 at 10:02 am #1202489391
I’ve said year after year to superhero fanboys that their films are not gonna make the Best Picture lineup unless the response is absolutely undeniable and if there’s a TON of support behind it. This is why I LOL’d at anyone who thought Logan and Wonder Woman would be serious contenders considering neither were undeniable. So I understand the doubt for this.
However, if the reviews keep steady and hold strong and the critics actually PUSH this, then it could make it into the BP lineup.February 7, 2018 at 10:21 am #1202489404
It could be a BP nominee only in the sense that any movie technically could get nominated.February 7, 2018 at 10:44 am #1202489413
It is really early but should “Black Panther” remain the most critically acclaimed comic book film of all time it could do well at the critics awards, and then Oscar voters will have to take notice just as they did with genre fare like “Get Out” and “Mad Max: Fury Road”.February 7, 2018 at 11:23 am #1202489428
It’s totally getting nominated. Absolutely correct. And I would never have said this about Wonder Woman or Logan. But it’s socially relevant and it’s more acclaimed than those films. And at this point, maybe it really IS time to nominate a superhero movie, just as last year it was time to nominate a horror film.
Black people can get any unconventional genre nominated.February 7, 2018 at 11:40 am #1202489437
Wait, are you saying it’s socially relevant because its cast is black?February 7, 2018 at 11:17 pm #1202489746

At least one of the songs has to get a Best Original Song nomination right? #OscarforKendrick get it trending
