We recently learned about Disney and Marvel’s Oscar strategy for Black Panther, which includes putting a significant awards season budget behind it, something Marvel had never done before. And with the Academy’s recent decision to hold off on its divisive, newly announced Best Popular Film category for next year, Marvel is going full steam ahead in its Best Picture campaign for the superhero blockbuster.

Marvel’s Oscar campaign will reportedly play up the personal nature of director Ryan Coogler’s accomplishment and what the film has meant to so many around the world, particularly to underrepresented artists and audiences of color. Black Panther was not only a huge box office hit, it was also a film that mattered deeply to both the industry and to filmgoers. Marvel aims to remind Oscar voters of all that.

Oscar voting for nominations opens January 7, 2019 and closes January 14th. Oscar nominations will be announced January 22, 2019.

The 91st Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 24, 2019, at the Dolby Theatre, and will be televised live on ABC at 6:30 pm. ET/3:30pm PT.
