Black Panther picked up a dozen nominations from the Critics’ Choice Awards this morning, including Best Picture. This comes on the heels of three Golden Globe Award nominations last week, which also included Best Picture – Drama. Black Panther just keeps gaining momentum this awards season.

It is wonderful to see Black Panther recognized in so many categories, though it would have been nice to see Ryan Coolger nominated for Best Director. After all, it was his vision that helped guide the film’s success in all of the categories for which it was nominated.

Regardless, the nominations are piling up for Black Panther. In addition to the Golden Globes, the film was honored as one of the year’s best by both the National Board of Review and the American Film InstituteBlack Panther: The Album has also received eight Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year.

Hopefully, Black Panther will be able to keep building on its early success this awards season, leading to Oscar® nominations and victories.
