Post Avengers: Endgame
Headed for a BP nomination? Black Panther had better reviews and the race angle but Endgame is even bigger

Black Panther had at best equal reviews, Endgame is a much better movie. Panther was a pretty typical origin story, however well done.

Endgame has a chance if the field is super weak, but more likely it pulls a Force Awakens and is nominated in like every minor category, winning 1 or 2.

Panther had an 88 on metacritic to Endgame's 77 and ranked 7th at the end of the year on top 10 lists via criticstop10.com. I agree it was agenda driven but nevertheless its reviews were stronger in my opinion

This won't be nominated for BP. There are too many plot holes for the Academy to take this seriously. BP's smaller scale and linear storyline helped it avoid plot holes

I'd like to see and think it deserves a best pic. nom from what I've so far this year, but from what's been said above, it's unlikely it will.

They should just make a special award for RDJ for single handily creating the most succuessful movie franchise of all time because he made everyone fall in love with the first Iron Man. I genuinely don't know how you don't reward him with something.

I could definitely see an RDJ nom.

As great as the movie is though, it does nothing to make old white people feel less guilty about racism. So BP is probably out.

More likely yes, but still very very very very unlikely.

I would think this would/should deserve a BP nomination simply because it's going to be the #2 if not #1 highest grossing film of all time. It is so frustrating to see the Academy ignore rewarding box office historical juggernauts in the past with some using the excuse it's box office is the reward. This film being a complete buildup from 21 previous films I think will work in it's favor and the voting body should be more receptive to this specific film due to the unique attributes of it. In my view this should be ROTK type rewarding at least in terms of nominations as many of the actors, directors, writers, producers etc have been involved with the series for many years. I agree with RDJ being nominated just as a body of work.

Honestly I do think Endgame is the first and only MCU movie that has a legitimate argument for a BP nod, besides maybe the first Avengers. It can honestly be said that it does push the envelope for cinema, unlike most Marvel films. What they achieved here is honestly just astounding and is going to go down in film history regardless of if it wins a single Teen's Choice Award, let alone an Oscar nomination.
