The film, which has earned over a billion dollars at the global box office, is nominated for Best Original Score and Motion Picture - Drama at the 2019 Golden Globes. Disney CEO Bob Iger and Winfrey hosted the party on Monday evening at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California to celebrate Black Panther's success as it began its awards journey. The movie was directed by Coogler and starred Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan. And all three and more were seen at the party. Winfrey had earlier this year called the movie 'phenomenal' in a short review on Twitter.

Winfrey told The Hollywood Reporter: "I just wanted to say that when I first saw Black Panther, I sent an email to my friend Bobby and said, 'Hi Bobby! Just saw it. It's worth everything I've heard and more. A phenomenon in every way, on every level. Makes me tear up to think that little black children will grow up with 'Wakanda forever.' It's game-changing, it's pride-making, it's dazzling, it's phenomenal.' That was my personal review."
