'Black Panther' Wins Big at The Critics' Choice Awards
By NICOLE DRUM



The 24th Annual Critics' Choice Awards are tonight honoring the year's biggest accomplishments in entertainment and this year, Black Panther took home the awards for Best Visual Effects, Best Production Design, and Best Costume Design.

The Best Visual Effects category featured some stiff competition featuring films from a variety of genres. Superhero films were well-represented thanks to Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther. Action films were represented by Mission: Impossible - Fallout, while sci-fi films received a nod thanks to Ready Player One. Disney's Mary Poppins Returns was also nominated in the category alongside biographical drama, First Man.


The Critics' Choice Awards are awarded each year by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association to honor the best in film and television achievement. When it comes to the film awards, the Critics' Choice Award is often a reliable predictor for Academy Award nominations and as several of the films nominated for the Critics' Choice Award are already on many short lists for the Oscar nod -- specifically First Man, Ready Player One, Mary Poppins Returns, and Black Panther -- tonight's win could bode well when it comes time to take home that award as well.



The film, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o, is just the third movie to bypass the $700 million milestone at the domestic box office, making it the United States’ third biggest earning movie ever behind only Disney’s own Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936m) and James Cameron’s Avatar ($760m).

In addition to Best Visual Effects, Black Panther also took home awards for Best Production Design, and Best Costume Design.Black Panther's win tonight is the tenth film to win the Best Visual Effects award. The First Best Visual Effects award was bestowed to Avatar in 2009. Last year, War for the Planet of the Apes beat out Blade Runner 2049, Dunkirk, The Shape of Water, Thor: Ragnarok, and Wonder Woman for the honor.

Black Panther Audience Brings In New Fans

Black Panther drew the most diverse North American audience ever for a superhero film according to ComScore. African Americans made up the largest share of the audience, or 37 percent, followed by Caucasians (35 percent), Hispanics (18 percent), Asians (5 percent) and Native American/Other (5 percent). For a normal Marvel film, black consumers would make up around 15 percent of the audience.

There is no doubt that Black Panther was a cultural phenomenon for black people, but these numbers show the broad appeal that a superhero movie with a largely black cast can have. But we should really give credit where credit is due…

‘Black Panther’ Reveals Black Audiences’ Box Office Superpower
Jeff Green, Jordyn Holman and Anousha Sakoui

It’s been clear for months that black audiences would show up for “Black Panther,” the first big superhero movie with a predominantly black cast. The weekend put a finer point on that enthusiasm, with $242 million in domestic box-office sales buoyed by African American audiences, especially in major black cities.

Theater revenue was up 56 percent over the weekend average in Atlanta, 31 percent in Washington and 81 percent in Memphis, according to Walt Disney Co., which distributed the film from its Marvel Studios division. The numbers are especially remarkable considering that people of color also probably traveled farther to see the film -- many more than once -- because historically, there are fewer theaters in predominantly African American neighborhoods.

For theaters suffering 25-year attendance lows, “Black Panther” is a shot in the arm. “For us it was one of the biggest movie openings for sure,” said Ahmed Anwar, who runs the historic Kent Theater in Brooklyn with his wife. “Everybody had a very positive reaction toward the movie and enjoyed it very much.”




“Black Panther” is the latest and biggest in a series of recent hits that feature black actors in major roles, like “Hidden Figures” and “Get Out.” People of color make up a disproportionate number of what the Motion Picture Association of America calls “frequent moviegoers” -- people who go to the movies once a month or more. Among African Americans in particular, the number of frequent moviegoers is up 27 percent since 2012. (That number is down 21 percent among white audiences.)

“What’s unique about “Black Panther” is that it is a tentpole film,” said Darnell Hunt, a professor and dean of social sciences in the sociology department at the University of California, Los Angeles. “It’s your classic superhero, big-budget, big box-office film. Until this point, you would never see a film like that with a black lead and a majority black cast.”


Claiming Wakanda
That’s made “Black Panther” a cultural touchstone among African-American audiences, who for years have lobbied Hollywood for more diverse films. A YouGov.com survey, for instance, found that about three-quarters of black respondents planned to see the movie, compared with less than half of whites.

“Everyone is claiming Wakanda,” Vanessa Kelly, a spokeswoman for the Urban League of Greater Atlanta’s guild group, said of the film’s fictional kingdom. Kelly attended a Feb. 15 screening with about 150 of the organization’s members, many in West African-inspired prints or dressed all in black like the title character. “We’re all just claiming Wakanda as a universal country. There was so much pride over the representation of seeing our culture on screen.”

As of 2015, people of color bought a majority of the tickets for about half of the top 10 films, said Hunt, who produces an annual report on African Americans in Hollywood. And the demand for representation has material consequences: movies that feature people of color in 20 percent to 40 percent of roles do better at the box office, according to Hunt, whose latest study is due out this month. Many moviegoers say they’ve already gone back to the theaters to relive the story, fueling even more sales for Marvel’s film. Kelly in Atlanta knows people who have watched “Black Panther” three times.

In Brooklyn, Anwar played “Black Panther” on the biggest of his three screens over the weekend. The Kent is the closest theater to several majority black neighborhoods, according to a Bloomberg analysis of U.S. census data and a list of more than 5,000 theaters from data provider InfoUSA.

Meanwhile, a higher percentage of women...

also showed up for Black Panther‘s opening weekend. Women represented 45% of the movie’s audience, which is less than the average moviegoing population but more than the typical female turnout for a superhero movie. The average superhero movie (many of which are led by mostly male characters) draws a 62% male audience, though Black Panther and last year’s Wonder Woman have bucked that trend.

I don't like it. lol

Seems like its trying to be DoomWar. Victor needs to be in a FF or standalone movie.

And given that Tchalla killed Killmonger, if he doesn't kill Doom for killing any Wakandan citizens(if that's the way the movie goes), its a bad look.

Agreed. The next Black Panther movie should stay insular and explore Wakanda and other parts of Afraka. There should be emphasis and expansion on  Afrakan culture and mythology.

Disagree.

What the MARVEL movies have demonstrated is that the comicbook 'event' stories (Civil War, Age of Ultron, Infinity War) were extremely successful with movie audiences.

Why stop there?

I'm with JRCarter.  Why not give MARVEL fans another go at Doctor Doom and give Black Panther a formidable foe everyone is familiar with? 
Not that Killmonger wasn't a serious threat but what would a Hollywood interpretation of Doom War look like? 


Then again...

Didn't like Doom War in the comicbooks, at all.

The event gave writer maberry an opportunity to diss our beloved African superhero and Wakandan citizens.

Sooo-o-o...  in that regard, maybe CvlleWakandan and Ture are correct. :-\


Ta-Neshi Coates ideas writing Black Panther is another possibility.

I'd flip through McGregors' run and update and revamp. Make it a gauntlet of villains that Tchalla can run through. Some ISIS like group in Naganda or something.

I’d be fine with the majority of the film focusing on T’Challa dealing with the aftermath of publicly losing his throne and kingdom to a lesser trained opponent. All the while doubt in his new open direction is growing in the nation.

Have at least one scene of him honing his skills in martial arts, performing a codified routine. Have at least one scene working his strategy game, using Mancala or any of the numerous traditionally African board games.

At some point it’s revealed that Achebe has been the conductor orchestrating the unrest in Wakanda. Throw in a McGuffin for T’Challa and/or other supporting characters to chase, to either get him outside of the nation’s borders, or seemingly leave him shorthanded against Achebe’s assassins.

A Mahershala Ali portrayed Achebe; and due to Wakanda going public neighboring Azania initiates the Supremacist Protocols. A political, feat filled cultural drama that demonstrates just how bad T'Challa the Black Panther really is.

Probably not Ali, since he already played Cottonmouth on Luke Cage. But, then again, Alfre Woodward was both on Luke Cage and in Captain America Civil War.
