Black Panther wins top prize at SAG awards

Black Panther was one of the biggest films of 2018, breaking all sorts of box office records.

Now the cast can also celebrate a massive win the Screen Actors Guild Awards – for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.

The awards in Hollywood, Los Angeles celebrate the best acting performances in film and television from the past year.

When collecting the prize, actor Chadwick Boseman, who plays T’Challa, teased that there might even be a sequel.

Talking about what it was like working with the cast he said: “We knew that we had something that we wanted to give and to come to work with everyday”.

“That is something I wish all actors would get the opportunity to experience.”

“One thing I do know, you can’t have a Black Panther now without a 2 on it.”

So far Marvel Studios hasn’t ever officially confirmed a Black Panther sequel, but earlier this month producer Kevin Feige said it is “absolutely” going to happen.

He was keeping tight-lipped saying: “[I have] nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that.”

Black Panther is the first superhero film to ever win the ‘Outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture’ prize.

Not only did the film beat other blockbusters including A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Crazy Rich Asians, but it also took the award for best stunt ensemble.

The film took more than $1bn (£794m) at the global box office within a month of its release in February 2018, was widely praised as game-changing for having a largely black cast and a black director.
