Would it be safe to say black panther won more awards then any other Marvel movie in the past combined and even if you included future awards it would probably be head and shoulder ahead and that has very little to do with the quality of the movie.
It was the first MCU film featuring a black lead (smart arses lurking in the background pointed out that it wasn't the first Marvel film with a black lead tho'), it was always going to be noteworthy and it'd be disingenuous to pretend otherwise; in American pop culture that's a big deal, so good for them
But that's not what you're implying; you're dubious that those of us here like the film that much, and that it's only for virtue signalling that we do. It's a flawed film, but deserves its praise as being in the top tier of MCU films. "Masterpiece"? Eh, it's not the word I'd use but I get it...
Look, it's plainly obvious you don't like the MCU films, they're not for you, having watched the Season Finale of a 'show' you neither like nor watch. You don't like Black Panther either, OK fine, but leave it at that, instead of the eyebrow waggling that we're all being very SJW...
