‘Black Panther’ cast turns Academy Awards into Wakanda

It turns out the Oscars were just another playground for Black Panther domination. While the movie that continues to prevail at the box office wasn’t yet eligible for any awards, that didn’t keep the cast from reminding everyone it’s Wakanda’s world.

Here’s all the ways the cast reigned.

Chadwick Boseman

Photogs snapped the film’s star in Givenchy duds with arms crossed, a sign that represents “Wakanda forever” in the Marvel movie.

Lupita Nyong’o

Boseman’s fellow castmate referenced the fictitious African nation of Wakanda in a tweet about her metallic, one-shoulder Versace number. “Vibranium by @Versace,” she wrote. “#Oscars #WakandaForever”

Danai Gurira

Looking as fierce as her Black Panther character Okoye, the Walking Dead actress made a unique beauty choice with a white metallic design applied to her shorn hair. The artwork complemented her Gabriela Hearst gown nicely.

Winston Duke and Daniel Kaluuya

Nyong’o and Gurira posed with their co-star, Duke (in Etro), and the consensus on Twitter was that the cast looked like royalty. 

Kaluuya, clad in toffee-colored Brunello Cucinelli, also looked dashing. 

The power of Panther permeated the red carpet. Presenter Sandra Bullock told Access Hollywood she was overcome with emotion when meeting the actors from the film. 

“I just was behind the Black Panther cast. I started to cry backstage when I was telling them how much the film meant to me as a woman, but (also) how much it meant to me as a mother,” she said. “That says a lot about where we are in this world, and in the world of superheroes. 

“I’m so grateful to Marvel ’cause at about five years ago, my son asked me if there were any brown LEGOs,” Bullock continued. “And I said, ‘Yes, there are,’ and I got a Sharpie and I turned Spider-Man brown, I turned the LEGOs brown, and I don’t have to turn them brown anymore.”
