Marvel blockbuster Black Panther has made history with its 2019 Golden Globes nomination.

In the Best Motion Picture – Drama category, this marks the first time a Marvel Studios project has been recognised in such a way. It's quite an impressive feat for a superhero movie, that's for sure.

But then again, Black Panther isn't like other superhero movies.

Although this achievement deserves to be celebrated, Black Panther must beat out the likes of BlacKkKlansman, Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk and the Lady Gaga showstopper A Star is Born for the ultimate prize.

Best of luck to the filmmaking team when the ceremony comes around – who are currently hard at work clubbing their talents together for a sequel.

Meanwhile, actress Danai Gurira (who plays Okoye) has shared her thoughts on all of the Oscars buzz surrounding Black Panther.

She admits that the team didn't anticipate any awards recognition, but neither was she surprised by the movie's eventual success.

"My mind did not go there," she noted, before adding of its success: "We did know that there definitely was a hunger for this type of story. We had it. Growing up, you want to see superheroes who look like yourself.

"That's the whole point. As a kid you want to see something or someone who looks like you."
