SANTA MONICA, CA –
A white friend who went out of his way to assert ‘Black Panther’ was “totally worthy” of being seen by a wider audience, and “definitely deserved its high rating on Rotten Tomatoes”, was reportedly making a substantial effort to change the topic of conversation this week.
Although he was pretty sure the Academy made a mistake when they nominated the film to receive an Oscar for Best Picture, Delroy Thompkins, a friend from college who comes over to watch NBA games at your house on Saturdays, said it was without question “a very good movie” before asking if you had seen the latest ‘Game Of Thrones’ episode recently.
“The script was interesting, the cast was decent, and the music had a lot of energy,” he agreed, trying to buy time while he thought of another topic. “And the costumes were really great – speaking of which, is that a new shirt you’re wearing?”
Although films like ‘Eighth Grade’, ‘First Man’, and ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor’ were passed over by the Academy, your friend applauded the recognition of ‘Black Panther’ as he looked up at the sky and added “those look like some of the clouds in the movie. I sure hope it doesn’t rain tonight.”

As of press time, your friend was reportedly relieved to finally be moving onto another topic before anyone wondered aloud why ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ was not nominated for Best Picture, too.
