    1. I think everyone knows it doesn’t deserve the nomination for the quality of the film. It was good but there have been plenty of better superhero films and it wasn’t even the best superhero film of the year. It just really comes down to where you view the “cultural achievement” aspect of it and if you think that’s a good enough reason.
      Even in the many articles from the entertainment media saying it deserved it, it was all about the cultural moment over the quality of the film. Not being an American, or a black person. I have no idea how to even judge that. Was it really a massive big deal, was it hype, is it a narrative people have bought into. No idea.
