Both T'Challa and Killmonger made valid points in their arguments. This is part of what made BLACK PANTHER so compelling to watch. In the real world I'd disagree with both of them. But I don't expect a superhero movie to to reflect my political perspectives. I ask for, at least, quality entertainment, and BLACK PANTHER rose above that. It really is a great movie.

Congratulations to Black Panther for securing three Golden Globe nods, including Best Drama in the motion picture category.

I recently saw numbers for the top 25 superhero movies, and it's curious that while BLACK PANTHER leads the way in the US, its numbers are far lower than films of the same genre in international markets.

I think the Best PIc Golden Globe nomination is wonderful - it’s so great to see this film get recognized during award season.  I think it deserves a Best Pic Oscar nomination as well.

Deserves it.  To my mind, the only other superhero film that should have come close to getting any sort of Best Picture nom (be it Golden Globes or otherwise), was SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE... and in some ways, BLACK PANTHER transcends that one on a few levels.

Overrated. The film was solid but nothing beyond the norm.

BLACK PANTHER seems to get better each time I watch it - for me it’s up there with IRON MAN as a stand alone movie that also weaves perfectly within the greater Marvel Universe.

The only misstep Black Panther made to me was wasting / killing off Klaw as a villain. Then again, it is comics, he could be back in a sequel and with all the Infinity Stone shenanigans...

Klaw coming back as a man made from (or infused with) Vibranium would make the most sense. His prosthetic arm was made from a Wakandan mining tool and if he was buried anywhere on Wakanda, the possibility of his resurrection seems very likely. 

I don't know what continued exposure to pure Vibranium does to the human body in the MCU, but in The Avengers animated show, Klaw became a monster made out of sound. I thought they were calling him The Scream, but I may be misremembering.

I was excited for this film to come out, and I like it. I think it's solid, and appreciate its place in cinematic history and its cultural significance. That noted, while certainly deserving of a number of awards, I don't think it's "best picture" level, storywise.

But, hey, as a fan of the character and comics, it would be cool to see it win the Oscar.

Wow, I really need to get out more. Its the only Best Picture nominee that I have seen. So I guess it gets my vote.

Wow, looking through all of the categories, I haven't seen another movie on the list till I get to Incredibles 2.

Wow, an oscar nod at the very least, maybe even a win!

I remember, I think, in the '70s Black Panther, Klaw coming back when some kid with a motorcycle picked up his sound blaster arm thing on it's own and he sort of overtook him and reformed himself that way. #14-15.

Given the Panther’s real world origin, I’m still waiting for some PC wonk to cry “cultural appropriation”. Or is it not possible to appropriate an imaginary culture?

Black Panther along with Spider-Man: Homecoming had two of the best Marvel villains as well.

While I really do enjoy the Cosmic villainy, etc. sometimes it really is refreshing to see a villain with a very human motivation. It could be as well that Michael Keaton and Michael B. Jordan are both great actors. Likeable even when playing the bad guy.

Well, Michael Keaton, anyway. 

I remain underwhelmed by Michael B. Jordan. 

I thought the character of Killmonger, his background and motivations, were intriguing. I just didn't buy the performance.

You and many, many others. 

I didn't think it was bad. But also, not that great. 

I liked him in both of the CREED movies, especially II, but not as much in this. 

Interesting in that in the latter, Adonis, like Eric, is also initially denied his birthright, but then, despite being granted it, (or, at least the spoils that came with it), he still felt the need to earn it thru ritual battle. 

Eric was completely denied his birthright, believed he was absolutely entitled to it, and the ritual battle to achieve it, merely a means to an end.

There was Oscar buzz for Wonder Woman a few years ago. I think at the very least Black Panther deserves Oscar recognition more.
