Though Black Panther ultimately lost the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Drama to the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, the film's continued award nominations could bode well for its chances at an Oscar.

The Academy Awards have historically ignored blockbuster-level films, but Black Panther achieved a rare level of both commercial and critical success. Domestically, the film was the highest-grossing film of 2018, beating out its star-packed Marvel counterpart Avengers: Infinity War. It's already garnered a slew of other awards and nominations.
