Black Panther shattered box office records during its original theatrical release receiving high praise from both fans and critics. From the time the film was in previews, critics had already created a buzz about possible Oscar nominations for the film. Last year, it seemed like any hopes of the film winning Best Picture was impossible due to a new category addition for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film. The Academy has since squashed the new category, and Black Panther earned the nod in the regular category.
Do you think Black Panther will win Best Picture at the Oscars this February? Will you be heading back to theaters to catch the magic of Wakanda once more on the big screen? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
