And there we have it, the big winners of the 90th Annual Academy Awards. Some well deserved winners, and notable in the fact that comic book movie Logan was nominated for an award. Yes, it didn’t win it, but even just a few years ago, every comic book-based movie was seemingly ignored by Oscars, so this is a good sign of, potentially, things to come.

Which is great news for any websites that specialise in comic book/superhero movies.
