The 2019 Oscar nominations were announced yesterday. These tell us which films could win at the Academy Awards (also called "The Oscars") in Los Angeles on 25 February. One film to be nominated in the Best Animated Feature category is "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse". It is the first time a Spider-Man film has been given this honour - even though there have been seven Spider-Man films since 2002! Spider-Man is not the only superhero film to be up for a prize: "Black Panther" could win Best Picture award, the most prestigious award of the evening. Superhero films are hugely popular with the public and make a lot of money for film studios. However, they are usually ignored when it comes to awards time, even "arty" films like the Batman series failed to be nominated. "Black Panther" and "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" are breaking new ground. Now that really is a super power!
