The Academy introduces a new 'Best Popular Film' category causing people to worry Black Panther may miss out on Best Picture 👀
= = = = = = = = = =
The 91st Academy Awards aka The Oscars is the biggest / prestigious awards ceremony especially for film.
At their recent Board of Governors meeting 54 governors voted to add Best Popular Film to their existing 24 categories.
Black Panther is the 10th highest grossing film in the world, and along with breaking many records and generally shaking up everyone & everything it's also a strong contender for the top categories at the Oscars including the biggest - Best Picture.
The Oscars don't usually recognise commercial /superhero /or comedy films. Black Panther was set to shake that up too. But some say the new category undermines the Oscars' integrity, also it could be viewed as a 'cheap' consolation prize in an attempt to attract viewers, and Black Panther could end up winning that instead of the top award 👀.
Over the years viewer ratings of the Oscars have steadily fallen. The new category seems like an attempt to entice viewers back.
Thinking positively @blackpanther

There's also strong possibility with nominations #RyanCoogler #BestDirector
