'Black Panther' First Marvel Film Nominated For Golden Globes 'Best Picture' Award

Movie history could be made at the 76th Golden Globes as Black Panther is the first Marvel movie EVER to be nominated in the category of 'Best Picture'.

The 2018 hit, starring Chadwick Boseman, has been the highest-grossing film of the year and has now surprised people further with its nomination.

Along with Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk and A Star Is Born were all nominated in the category.

The Marvel movie isn't only making history with its nomination, but it's also had success with its soundtrack and been nominated in the categories 'Best Original Score' and 'Original Song' for Kendrick Lamar's 'All The Stars'.

The film shot to the top of the box office, taking in a staggering $1.34 billion by the end of May 2018.

Marvel has already announced it will be doing a sequel to the film, but it's exact release date has not yet been confirmed.

It's already the third-highest-grossing movie of all time in the US - it sits just behind Stars Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar, when it comes to non-adjusted dollars - it was a huge hit for not only Disney who own the Marvel franchise, but for Ryan Coogler who directed the film.

The success comes just after Marvel lost one of its most prominent people ever, the man who started it all, Stan Lee.

Stan Lee passed away last month, aged 95, but did make it into a cameo in Black Panther - as he did in a huge majority of the films set in the MCU.

Marvel's hotly-anticipated trailer for Avengers 4 could be ready to drop any day, recently delayed due to the funeral of George H.W. Bush taking place.
