2019 Oscars

Black Panther's latest win bodes well for Oscars

The win for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture potentially sets up the movie for a major role at next month's Academy Awards.

The two leading Oscar nominees - Roma and The Favourite - were bypassed by the actors guild for a best ensemble field that also included BlacKkKlansman, Crazy Rich Asians, Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star Is Born. Although Black Panther wasn't nominated for any individual SAG Awards, it took home the final award at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
