Marvel Studios is doing what it can to make sure the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and other award-giving bodies see all of the extraordinary work that went into Black Panther. The studio has posted a “Welcome to Wakanda” featurette on Disney’s “For Your Consideration” website that highlights the many different ways Wakanda was constructed and what the country represents.
The Black Panther awards campaign has been very successful thus far. Ryan Coogler’s film has been recognized with several official selections and award nominations. You can see the ever-growing list below.
