The Marvel universe is just that, a pure marvel. It boasts of a following that's no less religious about its super teams and superheroes, than the ones who believe in the existence of a higher order placed within holy shrines. An array of captivating movies and stunning characters have taken birth on-screen under the Marvel Studios banner over the years. From the 'X-Men' to 'Fantastic Four' and 'Spiderman' to 'Deadpool', Marvel universe's oeuvre is packed with the best of the best that there are in the arena. © Marvel Studios Yet, regardless of the marvellous stories, and powerful characters that have made their way to the silver screen over the years, with over close to 35 Oscar nominations to its credit, none of them actually came close to take the gilded dude home. However, Marvel's bad luck with Oscars seems to have come to an end as 'Black Panther' won an Oscar for the Best Costume Design in a Motion Picture. 'Black Panther' had earned seven Oscar nominations in the Academy Awards 2019, of which designer Ruth Carter's costume designs for the film brought home the gold! Not just that, Carter also became the first black woman to ever win under the Costume Design category. In her acceptance speech, Carter said, “ It's been my life's honor to create costumes. Thank you to the Academy. Thank you for honouring African royalty and the empowered way women can look and lead on screen.” Apart from costume design, 'Black Panther' also won an Oscar for Best Production Design in a Motion Picture. Production designer Hannah Beachler also happens to be the first black artist to not only win under this category but also get nominated in the category in the last 90 years.

It seems 'Black Panther' was on a mission to make up for all of Marvel's lost chances, and went on to bag an Oscar for Best Score in Motion Picture, which was accepted by composer Ludwig Goransson. It's been a good day for the cast and crew of 'Black Panther' and the rest of us Marvel fanatics. Wakanda Forever!
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsArguably one of most impressive off-spinners of his generation, Harbhajan Singh ruled the bowling charts during his stint with Team India in international cricket. Making full use of his whiplash action, Bhajji managed to alter the length and pace of his deliveries with relative ease, which, in turn, spelled doom for opposition batsmen. But, a lack of form and rise of young spinners has pretty much restricted him to domestic cricket now. While he might not have featured for Team India in almost three years, Bhajji continues to be a vital cog in Chennai Super Kings' bowling unit in the Indian Premier League (IPL). While cricket remains his first love, the 38-year-old is a self-proclaimed fan of wrestling. He was earlier seen arm-wrestling prominent WWE superstar Dalip Singh aka the Great Khali. And, now the 'Turbanator' has backed it up by stepping in the ring himself. View this post on Instagram Panja with great khali @dalipsinghcwe #bigfella #Awesomeguy #bigman A post shared by Harbhajan Turbanator Singh (@harbhajan3) on Jun 8, 2018 at 8:51am PDT Invited to Khali's wrestling academy - Continental Wrestling Entertainment (CWE) - in Jalandhar, Harbhajan stepped in the ring and gave a motivational speech to the youngsters. The Indian spinner was urging them to work on the area of their interest irrespective of the sport they chose to pursue. But, before he could finish, Harbhajan's motivational speech was cut short by a local wrestler. The wrestler, whose ring name is 'Dubey-ji', entered the ring to interrupt the Indian cricketer's speech. Confronting Bhajji, the local wrestler introduced himself as the Singham of CWE wrestling. To which, Harbhajan broke down laughing before mocking him by saying: "What kind of a Singham are you because the Singham's that I've heard of, have strong personality, unlike you".

The confrontation went on before 'Dubey-ji' challenged Bhajji to a fight. But, he soon regretted his decision as Harbhajan landed a tight slap on his cheek that saw the local wrestler running out of the ring. To make a point, Bhajji, then, also dropped the mic in the middle of the ring. While it pretty much looked like a publicity stunt, Bhajji's latest antics surely reminded us of the infamous slap he landed on the cheek of S Sreesanth following an encounter between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab in the IPL in 2008.
