The complete list of the 2019 Golden Globe Awards nominations has just been released and there are a few eye opening selections no one really expected to see.

For years fans have complained about the recognition, or lack thereof, towards the superhero/action genre. Well this year it appears that not only one but two Marvel superhero films have made it into the rankings. Particularly 'Black Panther'.

Already the third-highest-grossing movie of all time in the US, behind only "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Avatar" in non-adjusted dollars, the Ryan Coogler-directed movie 'Balck Panther' has been a huge hit for Marvel and its parent company, Disney. Its success has represented a significant cultural milestone, as a theatrical blockbuster with a predominantly black cast and director.

Thus far, however, the financial windfall for superheroes hasn't translated into major awards recognition. Last year, buzz surrounded the prospects of another trailblazer, "Wonder Woman," but the entry from Marvel rival DC didn't make the Oscar cut.

A best-picture nomination for "Black Panther" would cap a decade-long effort to foster recognition for such movies, following a much-ridiculed proposal by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences earlier this year to introduce a new "popular film" category.

"Black Panther" is doubly significant because the movie offered such a powerful showcase for African-American talent both in front of and behind the camera, just a few years after the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag came into being in response to the absence of people of color in acting categories.

With all the craziness in the world it's good to see change within the arts and motion picture association. We're rooting not for just Black Panther but for the recognition of the dominating genre which has undoubtedly proven that its earned its place to share the same stage. This is good for the culture!
