Chadwick's Wakanda salute at the Oscars was among the many things that won the internet today.

There is no disagreement that Black Panther is the first blockbuster of 2018.

Since it released February, it may not have made it to the Oscars' race. But the star cast made sure their presence was felt.

Some memorable moments from the red carpet.

Chadwick Boseman appeared in an all black ensemble. But it was his Givenchy jacket and Wakanda salute that truly stole the show.
'Fit for a king! King T'Challa that is!!' a user wrote on Instagram.

Danai Gurira had shaved her head to look her part in Black Panther.
Instead of wearing a wig, the actor flaunted a silver head stamp. Too cool, right?

Tiffany Hadish may not have starred in Black Panther but her gown paid tribute to her Eritean-African heritage.
She recalled her late father telling her, "One day you're going to end up at the Oscars and when you go, you have to honor your people.' So I'm wearing an Eritrean, authentic princess dress. And I'm PROUD of it," she told E! magazine.
