Black Panther was nominated for seven Academy Awards yesterday. One of those nominations was for Best Picture, the first ever for a movie based on comic book superheroes. It was a historic achievement among many for the Ryan Coogler film over the past year.
In recognition of Black Panther‘s nominations, Entertainment Weekly has given the film the cover of the magazine’s Oscars® issue. The issue also includes a wonderful tribute to the film, beautifully-written by Marc Bernardin. The article is already available online here.
This is the kind of celebration Black Panther deserves and I look forward to seeing it continue throughout this Oscar® season!
