Best Panther: Should Black Panther Win Best Picture?

Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ is now the first superhero movie ever to be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Does it have a real chance to win – and if it does, should it? If the Oscars are about celebrating not what Academy voters’ liked but what truly brings audiences together (and truly represents what the Hollywood film industry is best a producing); why should The Academy ignore the movies’ most popular genres…and the biggest, most diverse audiences?
