Who are the stars who received the award?

Marvel's Black Panther had an almost all-black cast, and the stars who received the prestigious award included Chadwick Boseman, the protagonist, Michael B. Jordan, the chief antagonist, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Sterling K. Brown, and Angela Bassett.

Unhappy fans

Despite prestigious award, 'Black Panther' fans were unhappy, here's why

Despite winning the prestigious award at SAG, Black Panther fans are not happy.

This is primarily because Boseman failed to thank the legendary Stan Lee, who passed away in 2018, while accepting the award.

Fans felt it was unfair to only mention people involved in making the film and not Lee or Jack Kirby, who wrote the comics, making the Black Panther film possible.
