When the insiders said that Disney and Marvel had seriously aimed through the “Black Panther” to make a small revolution and for the first time in history to get an “Oscar” for a superhero blockbuster, they did not exaggerate at all. It became known that Disney will promote the “Black Panther” on “Oscar” in 16 nominations – both technical and basic.
The list of nominations for the “Black Panther”, which Disney offered “for consideration” to the members of the Film Academy, is as follows:
The best director is Ryan Kugler;
The best actor is Chadwick Bozeman;
Best Supporting Actor – Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaloua, Winston Duke, Sterling K. Brown, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis;
The best supporting actress is Lupita Niongo, Danai Gurira, Letisha Wright and Angela Bassett;
The best-adapted scenario;

Last year, Warner Bros. had similarly ambitious plans for an Oscar. with her “Wonder Woman”, but ultimately the superhero blockbuster DC did not take any nominations at all. Something tells us that Disney and Marvel with the “socially significant” “Black Panther” will get better.
Nominees for the Oscar will be announced on January 22, 2019, and the ceremony will take place one month after this – on February 24, 2019.
