I just looked up "Disney Awards FYC" in Google and found out that Disney will be promoting Blank Panther and The Incredibles 2 as contenders for Best Adapted Screenplay. Hopefully we'll get to see those screenplays soon enough.

They like promoting movies with no shot for best picture.

Well, the problem is that Disney never really has a good shot at any major awards. Heck, they rarely get a movie nominated for Best Picture (Up and Toy Story 3 only made it in because there were ten nominees those years). They've received a respectable amount of screenplay nominations, but obviously they're never the frontrunner.

Still hoping they'll change their mind about Infinity War and push it for all categories. It has no chance at anything other than techs, but at least they would probably release the script.

I actually think BP has a legit shot at a Best Picture nod. It won't win in a million years.
I'd be very surprised if it did get the nod, especially with everything else it has to compete against: Roma, The Favourite, Beale Street, First Man, A Star is Born, Green Book, Blackkklansman, possibly Vice, and a few others. Black Panther getting the required number of 1st place votes seems like an extreme longshot.

I think given the recent contraversy surrounding the best popular film helped bolster it, also it being such a huge cultural event they can't ignore that, plus the academy loves flicka that make a ton of money.

A Star Is Born making a ton of money are hurting it's chances but I still think it's got a legit shot. It's maintain it's momentum and still on the lips of Oscar pundits who are good at predicting these things.

Making a tone of money won't hurt its chances. The Shape of Water made $195m worldwide and won.

I really liked Black Panther (besides terrible CGI in the final battle), but movies shouldn't be awarded just because of "huge cultural event", it has nothing to do with quality. I think we need a second coming of The Dark Knight level movie to have another shot at Best Picture nom or at least solid comic book movie much closer to Academy tastes. Maybe Joker will do it, we'll see.
