'Black Panther' Lands 8 Nominations From Music City Film Critics' Association

The awards nominations keep rolling in for Marvel's Black Panther, which has proven itself to be much more than a success at the box office. Last week, the Music City Film Critics' Association (based in Nashville, TN) released its inaugural list of annual award nominations, following in the footsteps of esteemed groups like the New York Film Critics Association. When the nominations were announced on Friday, Black Panther found itself on the list a whopping total of eight times.

While the film didn't land a spot in the coveted Best Picture race, Ryan Coogler was recognized for his efforts with a nod for Best Director. Michael B. Jordan received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his villainous turn as Erik Killmonger.

Black Panther also received nominations for Best Song ("All the Stars"), Best Score, Best Sound, Best Sound Integration, Best Production Design, and Best Action Movie. The film's eight nominations were the second-most of any film, trailing only A Star Is Born, which received 10.

Avengers: Infinity War was also nominated for Best Action Movie, while Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse landed nods for Best Animated Film and Best Song ("Sunflower").
