Fans are also reacting on social media to the news that Black Panther has been nominated for Best Motion Picture Drama. Black Panther has also been nominated for Best Original Song and Best Original Score. The song “All The Stars” written by Kendrick Lamar, Anthony Tiffith, Mark Spears, Solana Rowe, and Al Schuckburgh will compete against Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” from A Star is Born.
Those watching the Golden Globes will notice that unlike the previous award shows that stirred controversy, the Golden Globes nominated many movies, actors, and actress of other ethnicities. One year the Academy Awards were met with a social media protest called Oscars Whiteout.
Due to no black actors, actresses or movies being nominated, many people protested and refused to watch the award shows.
The Golden Globes made sure they wouldn’t repeat the actions the Academy Awards made.
The Golden Globes 2019 has five movies for the Best Motion Picture. They are If Beale Street Could Talk, A Star Is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Black Panther, and BlacKkKlansman. Three of these films feature black actors and directors.
