The Golden Globes has officially announced the contenders for the 2023 awards ceremony, and Marvel Studios has received two nominations for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – one of which makes MCU awards history.
Marvel Studios has always struggled to leave much of a mark on the prestigious awards season, despite pushing nearly all of its projects for nominations. However, 2018’s Black Panther broke new ground for the MCU as it received multiple acknowledgments – and even a few wins – across the Oscars and Golden Globes.
This has left hopes high for Wakanda Forever to replicate that same awards season success, although Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has steered clear of making any predictions. And throughout that discussion, one name has shined through above all others in acting award contention: Angela Bassett.
Black Panther 2 Star Receives Historic Acting Nomination
Angela Bassett has been nominated in the category of “Best Supporting Actress, Motion Picture” at the 2023 Golden Globes for her role as Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Bassett’s full list of opposition in the category can be seen below:
Angela Bassett – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Kerry Condon – The Banshees of Inisherin
Jamie Lee Curtis – Everything Everywhere All at Once
Dolly De Leon – Triangle of Sadness

This marks the first Golden Globes acting nomination for an MCU movie, following two television nominations for Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen’s performances in WandaVision at the 2022 ceremony.
Wakanda Forever also received a nomination for “Best Original Song, Motion Picture,” for Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” track that played during the credits. 2018’s Black Panther was similarly nominated in this category for the 2019 Golden Globes for Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All the Stars.”
