The Marvel project beat out films BlacKkKlansman, Mary Poppins Returns, Isle of Dogs and If Beale Street Could Talk to become the first superhero movie to win the award. Groansson thanked director Ryan Coogler in his acceptance speech and said working with the filmmaker was a big honour for him. "I want to share this award with all the incredible artistes I have worked with on this film and all the classical musicians from London who recorded on the original score," he added as reported by Press Trust of India.

Groansson recently won two Grammys, bagging the Best Score for Black Panther and Best Song for Childish Gambino's 'This is America'.

Black Panther also picked up Marvel’s first Oscar for Best Costume Design in a Motion Picture for the works of designer Ruth Carter. Along with making Marvel history, Carter is the first African-American woman to ever win in the Costume Design category.
