Marvel Agrees "Black Panther" Should Win Every Oscar

Disney has released their list of Oscar nominations and they're hoping "Black Panther" wins it all.

As we've written many times before "Black Panther" is a cultural and artistic milestone. It's exactly the kind of ground-breaking film that the Academy Awards should recognize. Unfortunately, it also has guys in tights fighting with superpowers.

Today Marvel submitted their list of films (only one really) and categories for Academy Award consideration. It's noteworthy that the film is being submitted for 16 of the 25 categories. So clearly they're hoping for a sweep.

Comic book movies have had a hard time at the Oscars. Marvel has been nominated for nine Academy Awards but never won. DC, meanwhile, has won two Academy Awards. One for Suicide Squad (go figure) and another for Heath Leger's iconic performance in "The Dark Knight".

The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, are a set of 24 awards for "artistic and technical merit in the film industry", given every year by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). They're designed to recognize "excellence in cinematic achievements as assessed by the Academy's voting membership".  The award nominations will be released January 22, 2019. The official Oscar winners will be presented live on Feb. 24, 2019.

In related news, the Academy has "postponed" the "Popular Films" category after the backlash.

Marvel clearly believes this movie could break their losing streak. The could be right. They should be right.
