“Black Panther” Made History At The This Year’s SAG Awards

January 28, 2019 / Posted by:

The Screen Actors Guild Awards has always reminded me of a school assembly where the students give a huge middle finger to all of their teachers and honor each other while getting hammered in the cafeteria. Therefore, it’s one of my favorite awards shows of the season and last night it became the real MVP when it honored the mega-successful Black Panther with the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award. And why is this important? Because winning this award makes Black Panther the first superhero movie, especially one from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to EVER receive that honor. You know what I say to that? WAKANDA FOREVER BITCH!

Black Panther beat out some very strong competition with its contenders BlacKkKlansman, Crazy Rich Asians, Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star Is Born. And since Marvel loves anything that makes them tons of money to keep asses in the seats for years to come they sent the cast a congratulatory tweet after their historic win.

Black Panther is also nominated for the Best Motion Picture Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards, which is a huge milestone because no other movie from the MCU has received that honor either. People reports that after the film snatched the win cast members Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Angela Bassett and forever bae Michael B. Jordan joined Chadwick Boseman, speaking on behalf of director Ryan Coogler, as he gave a speech that made me want to pack my bags, move to Wakanda, and never come back.

“We all know what it’s like to be told there’s not a screen for you to be featured on, there’s not a stage for you to be featured on,” Boseman said. “We know what it’s like to be the tail and not the head. We know what it’s like to be beneath and not above.”

“And that is what we went to work with every day because we knew, not that we would be around during awards season and that it would make a billion dollars, but we knew we had something special that we wanted to give the world.”

Boseman added, “We knew we could create a world that exemplified a world that we knew we wanted to see. We knew we had something that we wanted to give.”

Here’s the clip:

As for the rest of the show, host Megan Mullally made me wonder how many shots she pounded before hitting the stage (clip below). Emily Blunt beat out The Favourite ladies (Oscar frontrunner Regina King wasn’t nominated) for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for A Quiet Place. A Star Is Born ended up with shit. And Rami Malek beat Christian Bale for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role, and continued to keep his lips shut about Bryan Singer.
