Post Black Panther Will Win Best Picture because...
1. It’s a great movie
2. Celebrates black excellence
3. Celebrates female excellence
4. Heavy anti-colonial themes, but it doesn’t pin all the blame on white people
5. Kendrick Lamar
6. We know the academy likes to double award people, so this win is for Panther, Infinity War and the ten years Marvel has kept the cinemas thriving

I just can’t see them choosing the very white remake of a Star Is Born or a Netflix movie over this. Though history suggests that some extra-safe B+ bait movie will come in and ruin it all. It’s been ten years since BP has gone to an actual great movie (The Hurt Locker). So maybe BlacKkKlansmen is how the academy snubs superheroes again without being called racist?

They honored Mexico last year and black people the year before. They are NOT giving best picture to a throwaway superhero film, it’s just not happening no matter how diverse it is. It’s a great movie sure, but it’s still just popcorn entertainment. The Dark Knight it is not. If the academy cared that much about diversity, they’d award BlackKKlsnsman or If Beake Street could talk or something, not a marvel movie.

Let's also not forget here that Bland Panther is an incredible racist film. But it's good racism so it doesn't matter. :roll:

The first point is already wrong so no need for further reading.

This could have been a better film if the cast had been white.

The best things about Bland Panther were Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis. #RuleBritannia

Well for the purposes of my argument I’m using its 88 on metacritic. :P

Also it’s not just a throwaway film. The whole of Marvel’s future plans were affected by it. They’ve even said they want to include every type of race, religion, culture, etc... in the Universe. That’s gonna play very well with the academy.

Because the Academy cares about the future of Marvel.

The only thing particularly notable about it is it’s casting. It’s only going to be nominated because of that, the overall weak field, and pressure. That’s not enough to win.
