Black Panther has won the top film award in at the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, putting it in strong contention for an Oscars win this February.

It also took out the award for best stunt ensemble, announced prior to the awards telecast, which was hosted by Megan Mullally in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the best actor awards for film went to Glenn Close for The Wife and Rami Malek for his performance as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.
Emily Blunt won the award for best female actor in a supporting role in the motion picture section of the awards for her role in the horror film, A Quiet Place, beating Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, whose performances in The Favourite have caused significant Oscar buzz.
