After racking up racking up six Oscar nominations — including one for Best Picture — Black Panther got a historic win on Sunday night, picking up the Screen Actors Guild Award for best cast in a motion picture, the biggest honour of the ceremony. The cast, which included Lupito Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, and Michael B Jordan, gathered on stage, while the lead actor Chadwick Boseman gave a powerful speech, celebrating the win.

Through the speech, Boseman reflected on the importance of the Black Panther victories and how its representation of African-American actors impacted the industry. Quoting Nina Simone in the acceptance speech, Boseman said, "We all know what it's like to be told that there is not a place for you to be featured, yet you are young, gifted, and black. We know what it's like to be told to say there's not a screen for you to be featured on, a stage for you to be featured on."

Black Panther is also nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Original Song and Best Production Design.

Aftersun: The most realistic portrayal of depression and intergenerational trauma in visual medium

Aftersun’s final act shows Calum and Sophie dancing to Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure. Feelings are felt. Emotions are stirred. A tear or two rolls down. Perhaps, in the afterlife, Calum is happy that Sophie is trying to process her trauma instead of passing it on to her child.
