Production designer Hannah Beachler created the imaginary, Afrofuturist society of Wakanda for the film version of Marvel’s superhero Black Panther, and she and set decorator Jay Hart won the Production Design Oscar for their distinctive work. In Ryan Coogler’s epic and thematically ambitious comic adventure, which received seven nominations including Best Picture, and won three Oscars, Chadwick Boseman is T’Challa/Black Panther, the ruler of Wakanda, who finds his kingdom threatened by the merciless Erik Killmonger (a charismatic Michael B. Jordan), who has a grudge against T’Challa’s homeland.
