Black Panther may have come out all the way back in February, but it’s still on the top of everyone’s minds. This morning the Marvel film was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Original Score (Ludwig Göransson), and Best Original Song (“All the Stars”). The film’s nominations mark the first Marvel Studios movie and first superhero movie to earn a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Motion Picture Drama category.
The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira, who played Okoye, the fiercely loyal right-hand to T’Challa, in Black Panther, was in attendance at the nominations and caught up with E! News to give her instant reaction to the exciting recognition.
Of course, when it comes to Black Panther it’s the highly anticipated sequel that’s one everyone’s minds. Well, that and the Avengers 4 trailer. Gurira also provided a quick update on the status of the follow-up film.
Up next for Gurira in the MCU is Avengers 4 and earlier this year, the Russo Brothers revealed that they were looking forward to Okoye having a bigger role.
