Black Panther fans have reacted angrily after the Marvel epic failed to win a single award at the Golden Globes.
The box-office smash, directed by Ryan Coogler, was considered to be an awards frontrunner after bagging three nominations including best motion picture drama.
But as the awards took place, it was ultimately Bohemian Rhapsody that emerged triumphant in that category. It also lost out on nominations for best original score and best original song for Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s ‘All The Stars.’
However, the lack of recognition didn’t go unnoticed by Marvel fans – who made their feelings very well known online.
One fan wrote: “Can’t believe i just sat in front of the tv for 3h20min to watch black panther lose ALL its categories.”
Another hit out at the wins for Bohemian Rhapsody, arguing: “Bohemian Rhapsody over black panther and a star is born i just…. like even you borhap stans have to admit borhap as a whole movie wasn’t good. what made it good was the music and the cast. just have no words.”

Upon release in February 2018, Black Panther made history by grossing a staggering $1 billion (£784 million), making it Marvel’s highest grossing movie at the time.
Meanwhile, it was confirmed last year that a sequel to Black Panther is in the works.
