"You are the original superhero". Thank you for honoring African royalty and the empowered way women can look and lead on screen. Just two weeks ago, Göransson won Black Panther a Grammy (making it one of Marvel's first Grammys) for the score as well.

"Black Panther" claimed three out of the seven awards it was nominated for at the 91st Academy awards aka Oscar at the Dolby Theatre on Monday morning, February 25, 2019.

The film's production designer, Hannah Beachler, was the first black person to be nominated for and win an Oscar for best production design, according to the Academy.

Her authentic work on Spike Lee's "Malcolm X" (1992) and Steven Spielberg's "Amistad" (1997) has pushed her name apart from others in the industry.

United Kingdom backlash at Meghan Markle's lavish USA baby shower
Animal-lover Meghan was eager to say hello with she and Harry seen petting the horses ahead of their tour of the equine centre. The North African trip is expected to be the last one overseas for Meghan before their baby is born in the spring.

Carter had a moving acceptance speech that spoke to the environment behind the scenes for Black Panther.

"Thank you for teaching me about people and their stories", she said, addressing her mother directly.

"We wanted to bring the world of Africa to life", Beachler said while backstage admitting that she was still "freaking out" after her victory. And we're here 12 years later, you know, celebrating one of the most important cinematic moments in history. Outside of The Dark Knight and Black Panther, most superhero movies are recognized by the Academy for visual effect or sound categories. "I stand here with agency and self-worth because of Ryan Coogler", she said of Black Panther's director.

Writer Luminary Jones remarked: "Black Panther is officially the best thing Marvel has ever done by Hollywood's standards". Pitted against his own family, the king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and embrace his future as an Avenger.
