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.

SAG winners this year are all around weird. I really won't read too much into it.

$936,662,225 didn't help to even get a nomination for BP.
And $760,507,625 lost to $17,017,811.

There are folks who don't even consider BP the best superhero film of 2018.

I don't believe that BP is going to be selected as #1, #2 or even #3 on enough ballots to win.
Obviously, a culturally significant film and barrier breaking in other ways and it's nominations will be it's reward.

Yeah, but this is the oscars not the KJ Awards. Questions like “what is the best movie?” don’t matter as much as “what will make us look good?”

Kendrick couldn't win Album of the Year at the Grammys despite being nominated three times. What makes you think he'd help push the Academy to vote for Black Panther?

Re Algren about BP’s racism: I don’t think counterbalance is the same thing. It’s not like Lara Croft is sexist just because she’s stronger than so many men; these kinds of stories help balance social prejudice by flipping the script. Wakanda is as far ahead of the West as the West was of aboriginal Africa, which is why the term “nigger” has so much weight still - even today it’s a relative global slum over there, so I bet thousands if not millions of young black Americans get something of a well-deserved morality boost from this kind of fantasy. Or do you think it’s racist from a conception perspective, where it was basically a white guy telling black people what their perfect hero should look like?

One thing you can guarantee: if this were a contender (let alone winner) for best picture, it would confirm the Academy is mostly comprised of racists making up for their own guilt. It’s not even close to The Lord of the Rings, lol, which is how good fantasy needs to be in order to be taken seriously - what have you been smoking? I get that it’s one of the best superhero Motion Picture Cinema Films so far, but you’d have to push the envelope more than Watchmen with a better director to get even close.
