The 2019 Academy Award nominations have now been revealed in full and Black Panther has made history. This is because it's the first ever superhero movie to be nominated for the 'Best Picture' category.

Usually Hollywood blockbusters are snubbed by the Academy Awards, but Black Panther has received seven nominations in this year's event. It probably won't win 'Best Picture', but the fact it got nominated in the first place is a huge deal.
