What are Black Panther’s chances of winning Best Picture?

While comic book films usually dominate at the box office, they had been passed over by the Oscars in the Best Picture category until now.

A decade ago, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight (2008) failed to receive a best picture nomination, and the subsequent outcry was in part credited with the Academy expanding the best picture race from five to ten nominees.

While best picture nominations have eluded comic book films historically, fantasy films have occasionally won Best Picture, such as Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water (2017) and Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003).

Most of the movies nominated for Best Picture have at least a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes — Black Panther is the highest-rated on the list, while Bohemian Rhapsody ranks last.

It’s a tough battle, considering the equally great productions Black Panther is up against but whether Black Panther wins Best Picture or not, it has and will ever continue to make history!
