'Black Panther' Earns Marvel Studios Its First Golden Globe Nomination

The billion-dollar-grossing Marvel Studios flick "Black Panther" has become the first superhero movie to receive a Golden Globe nomination for best motion picture in the drama category.

The film, which stars Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyong'o, also earned two more nominations: best original song for Kendrick Lamar's "All The Stars" and best original score for composer Ludwig Göransson.

And if that wasn't enough, "Black Panther" is also the first Marvel Studios movie to be nominated for a Golden Globe. (Yes, "Deadpool" was nominated two years ago for best motion picture in the musical or comedy category, but that Marvel superhero's movies were distributed by 20th Century Fox.)

The 76th annual Golden Globe Awards will air Jan. 6 on NBC. And as for a "Black Panther" sequel, The Hollywood Reporter says production will likely begin either in "late 2019 or early 2020."
