Black Panther

Could this be the beginning of Black Panther‘s road to the Oscars? Don’t dismiss the Marvel blockbuster, which walked away with five wins at the 44th Annual Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films awards on Wednesday.

Black Panther reigned over the 2018 Saturn Awards ceremony, earning more wins than last year’s genre favorites like Get Out, The Shape of WaterBlade Runner 2049, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi  — all of which scored a fair number of their own trophies.

After sweeping last week’s MTV Movie AwardsBlack Panther took home five Saturn Awards, including Best Comic-to-Film Motion Picture and Best Director for Ryan Coogler. But the Panther himself, Chadwick Boseman, lost out to The Last Jedi‘s Mark Hamill for Best Actor, who finally got much-deserved recognition for his brilliant and career-best performance in Luke Skywalker’s swan song. The Last Jedi earned another win for director Rian Johnson’s screenplay.

The awards were pretty evenly spread out through the wealth of categories. Blade Runner 2049 walked away with Best Science Fiction Film, while The Shape Of Water won Fantasy Film, Get Out won Horror Film, Coco won Animated Film, and Wonder earned the award for Independent Film. And unlike the Oscars, Wonder Woman earned some awards respect, with Gal Gadot winning Best Actress.
