Last year, Black Panther earned three different nominations from the Golden Globes – one for Best Motion Picture (Drama), one for Best Original Score, and one for Best Original Song. Come the Golden Globes Awards ceremony, fans learned that Chadwick Boseman's first standalone movie as the King of Wakanda failed to win in any of the categories. However, despite this Golden Globes snub, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige still feels proud about the movie, calling the Marvel Cinematic Universe entry "certainly the most important victory we've ever had."

The Marvel executive went down to the Golden Globes to support Black Panther during the ceremony last night, and MTV News got to catch hold of Feige right on the red carpet of the event.

"We have high expectations, we spend a lot of money on these movies, we put a lot of time into these movies, we believe in them and expect them to do well that we can do another one. That it had the cultural impact it had is what is most meaningful," Feige said during the interview with the news outlet.

"This is my first time at the Globes. That Black Panther has the power to bring Marvel to the Golden Globes is pretty exciting," the Marvel President continued.

Sure, Black Panther might have not won anything at the Golden Globes, but its nomination at the event sure is enough. Black Panther was the first ever comic book movie to get a Golden Globes nomination for the Best Picture – Drama award, giving movies like Lady Gaga's A Star Is Born, Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, Barry Jenkin's If Beale Street Could Talk, and prize winner Bohemian Rhapsody, a little superhero competition to deal with.

Chadwick Boseman is set to reprise his role in Avengers: Endgame which premieres on April 26, 2019.
