In case you haven’t heard yet, Black Panther made some serious waves at the Golden Globe nominations this morning. The film, which hit theaters in February this year, was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Original Score (Ludwig Göransson), and Best Original Song (“All the Stars”). What’s even more exciting is with those three nominations comes some history-making accolades!
Black Panther is now the first Marvel Studios movie to earn a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Motion Picture Drama category.
Black Panther is also the first superhero film ever to be nominated in the Best Motion Picture Drama category.
And just as a fun reminder, Black Panther is the third-highest-grossing movie of all time in the United States, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar.
It’s safe to say that people were ecstatic about the news! Here are some of our favorites, starting with Mark Ruffalo aka The Hulk.
Couldn’t happen to a better group of people! https://t.co/xLfNSa2IYK

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
