Indeed, Ryan Coogler's superhero entry was nominated in the category, as well as in the categories Best Original Song and Best Original Score.

The only other superhero film to break into the Globes Best Picture categories was 2016's "Deadpool," which received a nod in the category Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The movie's star, Ryan Reynolds, also received a Best Actor nomination that year.

Many Marvel fans shared their excitement on social media following the announcement.

"Black Panther" was directed by Ryan Coogler and starred Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Martin Freeman and Daniel Kaluuya. So far, it was won BET Awards, a Hollywood Film Award, MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards.

Apart from "Deadpool" and "Black Panther," the only other two superhero movies to receive major recognition from the Academy or the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were "The Dark Knight," for which Heath Ledger was nominated for his performance, and "Batman," for which Jack Nicholson received a nod for his role. That of course does not count the various films that have been nominated in the sound or visual effects categories, or the animation category in which "The Incredibles" won in 2005 and "Big Hero 6" won in 2015.

The 2019 Golden Globes will take place on January 6. Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will be hosting the 76th annual awards show.

A spokesperson for Marvel has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.
