As the long, anti-climactic film awards season grinds to the end of its seemingly inexorable journey on Sunday night it is already time to look ahead a year from now to what appears inevitable: "Black Panther" as a major contender at the Oscars.

Ryan Coogler's visceral and beautiful film has already obliterated the competition and is scaling the lofty heights of towering box-office records with ease. 

Will "Black Panther" have the awards accolades to go with the box-office moolah?  No reason to think not.

A Best Picture nomination for "Black Panther" seems a sure thing.  Likewise for the film's visual effects.  Ludwig Goransson's original score as well.  Danai Gurira and Winston Duke could get supporting acting nods.  Mr. Coogler looks a shoo-in to receive Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar nominations.  Rachel Morrison could have her second cinematography Oscar nomination in a row.  Add Hannah Beachler's production design and Ruth Carter's costume design and a strong case, at least now, can be made for strong representation.

The only question is, will "Black Panther" have the staying power that Oscar-nominated films like "Get Out" have? 

The answer -- so far -- is clear.
