The nominations for the 2019 Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning and to my delightful surprise, Black Panther managed to be nominated for three awards:

Best Motion Picture – Drama

BlacKkKlansman

Black Panther

Bohemian Rhapsody

If Beale Street Could Talk

A Star Is Born

Best Original Song – Motion Picture

“All the Stars,”Black Panther

“Revelation,” Boy Erased

“Girl in the Movies,” Dumplin’

“Shallow,” A Star Is Born

“Requiem for a Private War,” A Private War

Best Original Score – Motion Picture

Marco Beltrami, A Quiet Place

Alexandre Desplat, Isle of Dogs

Ludwig Göransson, Black Panther

Justin Hurwitz, First Man

Marc Shaiman, Mary Poppins Returns

The big surprise is that it managed to not just nab three award nominations, but one for ‘Best Motion Picture – Drama,’ which is the first time that any superhero movie has ever been nominated for the category. In fact, this is the first to that a movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever been nominated for a Golden Globe Award period.

This shows that there’s actually a big chance that Black Panther could actually get nominated an Academy Award for Best Picture.
