The nominees are in for the 2019 Academy Awards, and history has been made! Black Panther is the first superhero film to be nominated for best picture - and it’s also up for 6 other Oscars! Also, Sam Elliott has finally been nominated, it’s pretty astonishing that it took this long, and as he good-naturedly joked to Deadline, “It’s about fucking time.”
The Academy loved a lot of the same films that were listed on the Matt Sager Podcast’s “Best of 2018” lists, including Black Panther, BlackKklansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, to name just a few.
