    What do you think Oscar wins and nominations that based purely for political purpose, not for the merit of the work?

    BLACK PANTHER (BP nom, score win, costume win)

    The only MCU film getting BP? It’s political, man. Score should have gone to First Man or Beale Street. The former was even not nominated.

    BLACK PANTHER is one of the best Comic book movies of all time, told a poignant story, and had amazing reviews on top of it being one of the biggest films of all time. Add to that the crafts, the great score, the good acting, and the fact that it is UNAPOLOGETICALLY BLACK. It deserved all of its praise.

    I think Maria is absolutely hilarious in Borat (she would’ve been deserving of the Oscar if Youn wasn’t nominated IMO) and I know she was singled out for praise, but let’s face it the reason the reason the attention in the first place was because of that Rudy scene.

    This thread is NOT about if Black Panther or any film DESERVES its accolades. There’s a difference between “if it deserves the nom” and “if it’s a political nom.”

    Black Panther deserves its BP nom for being an iconic black-cast film (this is already a political reason), but the nom 100% benefits MUCH from political reasons as a MCU movie.

    Is it the best MCU film? No. (Definitely not for GP)
    Does it deserve to be the only MCU film getting BP nom? Yes.
    Can it be considered as a political nom? Yes.

    This sounds no different than any other highest-rated Marvel movie. Then why were they barely in any discussion to be a top BP contender? Why? You just ended your sentence with the key reason and it IS political.

    Besides Black Panther, I would say the win of “Collete” (over “Love Song for Natasha” and “Concerto Is a Conversation”) and the nomination of “Do Not Split.” In fact, we see a lot of political noms/wins in these small categories.

    The fact that the LGBT-theme “Out” and “In the Heartbeat” couldn’t get nominated also seems political for me.

    I disagree.

    Oh dear. There are going to be a lot of snowflake posters who won’t be able to cope with some of the posts on this thread…

    It didn’t, it was a boring mess, Black Panther was an idiot, he wasn’t the same Black Panther of Civil War

    Halle and Denzel 2002, and this is from someone who genuinely likes their performances in their respective movies
