Lupita Nyong’o is a flirt. Lainey wrote about how “extra-close” she was with Winston Duke on the red-carpet last night. We’ve seen her insta-flirt with Chadwick Boseman and social media flirt AND real-life flirt with my Michael Bae Jordan Full Story

While the Oscars were happening, Black Panther was busy winning the box office for the third weekend in a row. The movie has now grossed over $900 million worldwide. They’re predicting it’ll be officially a billion dollars next weekend. A BILLION.  The Oscars, then, as we’ve been saying, represented a victory lap for Wakanda, or perhaps just a pre-victory lap, considering there are some who predict that Black Panther could be a contender for next year’s Oscars, with the right marketing strategy. Full Story

Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyong’o are both presenting at the Oscars on Sunday. No idea if they’re presenting together, but they’re both riding the Black Panther high—and it will be the dominant film again on Oscar weekend which, if Get Out were to pull off some kind of upset, would be serendipitous—so they both get to do that superhero strut on stage, together or separate. Full Story

Every actor in Black Panther (except for maybe living legends Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker) can look at their careers in two parts: BBP and ABP, as in Before Black Panther and After Black Panther.  Sure, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya and my man Michael B. Full Story

If by the end of this post, you feel the need to come in with some real talk … don’t. Do not take away my joy. Don’t take away your own joy. Let us all live in possibility for a while because, sure, this may be too good to be true, but it’s a lot better than believing that Robsten and Virtue Moir are secretly married and raising babies. Full Story

Black Panther is everything we’ve waited for

Among a host of amazing things, maybe the most amazing thing about Black Panther is that it’s a superhero movie. For all the weight and expectation and political pressure and representative issues that come with being the first black superhero movie released by Marvel Studios—and the first black superhero movie released during this current golden age of superhero movies—Black Panther is, at the end of the day, just a superhero movie. Full Story

Sarah saw Black Panther last night. Her first e-mail to me after her screening was, of course, about Okoye. I’ve BEEN telling y’all about Danai Gurira’s Okoye. People are going to lose their sh-t over Okoye. They are going to be demanding a standalone Okoye film. The same can be said for Letitia Wright’s Shuri or Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia. Full Story
