Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) was one of the most well-received and long-anticipated sequels last year, particularly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Angela Bassett, who plays Queen Ramonda, had a huge impact on the film and even earned Marvel its first Golden Globe for performance in a feature-length motion picture.

Besides this major achievement, that is not the only recognition for this sequel. In fact, this week alone, the film was nominated for three separate awards: the Producers Guild of America (PGA) Awards, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, and the NAACP Image Awards.
