Both T'Challa and Killmonger made valid points in their arguments. This is part of what made BLACK PANTHER so compelling to watch. In the real world I'd disagree with both of them. But I don't expect a superhero movie to to reflect my political perspectives. I ask for, at least, quality entertainment, and BLACK PANTHER rose above that. It really is a great movie.
I recently saw numbers for the top 25 superhero movies, and it's curious that while BLACK PANTHER leads the way in the US, its numbers are far lower than films of the same genre in international markets.
Deserves it. To my mind, the only other superhero film that should have come close to getting any sort of Best Picture nom (be it Golden Globes or otherwise), was SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE... and in some ways, BLACK PANTHER transcends that one on a few levels.
