It seems like nominations aren’t stopping for Black Panther as Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole are nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for the movie. Which is looking good for its Oscar chances at the end of this month. 9 out of 10 nominees for this award are also nominated for an Oscar in the same category, so, it’s likely that Black Panther will be the second comic book movie to do so after Fox’s Logan.
Of course, I highly doubt that it will win the award, but it’s still remarkable that two comic book movies within the last year have been nominated for the reward and I don’t see it stopping with the upcoming release of Joker, directed by Todd Phillips, could continue this trend and help in stifling the stigma in Hollywood of comic book movies being lower art.
