Hollywood, CA – The 91st Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night (February 23). Par for the course, Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars paraded into the venue to witness the annual ceremony go down.
The Ryan Coogler-helmed film Black Panther was up for seven awards, including Best Picture, Original Song, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Production Design, Costume Design and Original Score.
Although Kendrick Lamar and SZA didn’t walk away with the Original Song award for “All The Stars,” the celebrated Marvel film scooped up a gilded trophy in the Production Design, Costume Design and Original Score categories, marking a first in Marvel film history.
Black Panther was released last February and smashed numerous box office records. Upon its release, it became the highest-grossing film by a black director, highest-grossing 2018 film in the U.S. and Canada and second-highest-grossing film of 2018 worldwide.
It also became the ninth highest-grossing film of all time with over $1.35 billion in sales worldwide as well as the third highest-grossing film of all time in North America with over $700 million.
K. Dot and TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith curated the film’s soundtrack, Black Panther: The Album, which included “All The Stars.”
Earlier this month, Ludwig Göransson’s score for the movie won an Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media, while Kendrick, Future, Jay Rock and James Blake won a Grammy in the Best Rap Performance category for “King’s Dead.”
