When Black Panther debuted in 2018, it became nothing short of a cultural sensation. People adored the film’s universe, the heroes it introduced, and the villains it explored. It swiftly became one of Marvel Studios’ most ambitious undertakings of all time.


The film ended up winning three Oscars, a milestone for the MCU. Black Panther won awards for Best Costume, Best Production Design, and Best Original Score. Many people are wondering if Wakanda Forever, the highly anticipated sequel, will be as spectacular as the original. And could it bring more Oscars to the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s Oscar prediction

Senior awards editor Clayton Davis has released a report ranking the chances of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever receiving an Academy Award, aka an Oscar, in numerous categories.

Davis’ rankings in each category are as follows:

  • Best Picture: 12th most likely
  • Best Director: Ryan Coogler is the 21st most likely winner.
  • Best Cinematography: Autumn Durald is most likely ranked tenth.
  • Best Adapted Screenplay – Ryan Coogler and Joe Johnston Robert Cole’s work is ranked 11th most likely.
  • Best Supporting Actress: Angela Basset is ranked 10th, Dominique Thorn is ranked 31st, Danai Gurira is ranked 35th, and Lupita Nyong’o is ranked 37th.

Letitia Wright and Winston Duke were both left unranked for Best Actor and Best Actress, indicating that they are unlikely to receive nominations. Martin Freeman was also considered for Supporting Actor but did not receive a nomination.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder did not even receive honorable mentions. A prior report was created for Eternals last year, but none of the predictions were correct—which isn’t surprising given the film’s reaction.

Can Wakanda Forever manage to get an Oscar?

None of the categories won by the first picture are included in those predictions. If there are any, they are likely to get the most, and that is where they will be.


Best Costume Design is a prime example. Not only was that component of the previous film excellent, but it appears that Wakanda Forever may even outperform it. Simply look at the blue Midnight Angel suit for evidence, with Nakia’s outrageous green dress trailing close after.

It’s no surprise that Wakanda Forever‘s chances in the other categories are limited to none. The Academy is well-known for its antipathy against both superheroes and major blockbuster events. They do win occasionally, but it is far from the usual.

Of course, it would be wonderful if this could finally begin to change. There have been several MCU films that have deserved to be recognized; fingers crossed that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever can break that barrier even further.

Wakanda Forever will be released in theatres on November 11.
