Lupita Nyong’o was among the big winners at the 25th Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards held on Sunday night.

Nyong’o and her cast mates from Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ movie won a SAG award for ‘Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Motion Picture’.

Black Panther also bagged the ‘Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture’ award marking a successful year for the movie.

Lupita and Michael B Jordan

At the award show, fans couldn’t help but ‘ship’ Lupita who sat next to the dashing Michael B Jordan who served as the key antagonist in the movie.

However, the two have maintained that they just have good chemistry as friends.

“We’re good friends. Honestly, we’ve known each other a really long time and respect each other and I love this girl to death,” Michael told Entertainment Tonight.

While Lupita said “It’s flattering at the end of the day. I think it’s such a rare thing to find people you have good chemistry with and too for us to find each other as actors and get to work together, it makes the work richer that we truly enjoy each other’s company on and off screen.”
