Black Panther Makes Oscar History With First Superhero Best Picture Nomination

Black Panther, last year’s domestic box office king, scored the first-ever Best Picture nomination for a superhero film, marking another landmark for the action-adventure drama about a high-tech African nation and the warrior-king who is sworn to protect it.

The film’s status as a groundbreaker for representation was already obvious. With a predominantly black cast, the Afrofuturist fable not only set box office records, it toppled social barriers. The Academy Awards are one more accomplishment for the Marvel Studios movie.

In addition to Best Picture, Black Panther collected seven total nods — for costume design, original score, Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s original song “All The Stars,” production design, and the two sound categories, editing and mixing.
