Black Panther Scores Two SAG Awards Nominations

Marvel’s Black Panther continues its stellar awards season run, picking up two nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, announced on Wednesday.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther is up for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture (along with fellow Marvel films Ant-Man and the Wasp and Avengers: Infinity War) and Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, joining A Star Is Born, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody and Crazy Rich Asians. The latter category has, notably, been seen in recent years as a predictor for Best Picture winners at the Academy Awards.

The SAG Awards nominations increase Black Panther’s already impressive tally of awards nominations. The movie has been nominated for numerous Golden Globes, including Best Original Score by Ludwig Goransson, Best Original Song for Kendrick Lamar’s “All The Stars,” and, in a first for a comic book movie, Best Motion Picture – Drama. Panther also picked up twelve Critic’s Choice Award nominations, and eight Grammy nominations for its soundtrack.

The African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA), meanwhile, has already awarded the movie the Best Film award for 2018, and its director, Ryan Coogler, the Best Director award.
