Michael B. Jordan has celebrated his 32nd turn around the sun surrounded by family and friends… including the one and only Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z. As you do.
Sources tell Entertainment Tonight, Jordan hired out an entire restaurant in California to celebrate his special day. Other guests included Meek Mill, Drake, Machine Gun Kelly, Tennille Amor, and Jessica Allain.
During his speech, captured on a couple of Instagram Stories, Jordan thanked all his family and friends for supporting him throughout his career and for also rocking up to his birthday party.
Somehow, this picture smells rich.
On Instagram, Jordan’s Black Panther co-star Chadwick Boseman sent his best wishes: “What a journey it’s been. Happy birthday, brother.”
Black Panther, which also costars Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira, is up for a whopping seven Oscars at this year’s ceremony including Best Picture, Best Original Song, Production Design, Costume Design, and Original Score.
The film has already scored the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards‘ top honour – Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
The 91st Academy Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday 24 February. That’s a Monday for us.
Speaking of which, the Academy has already announced Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper of a Star Is Born – nominated for eight Oscars – will perform ‘Shallow’ at the event. Jennifer Hudson will perform the Oscar-nominated song ‘I’ll Fight’ from RBG – a documentary about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Fellow nominee, ‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ from Disney‘s Mary Poppins Returns will be performed by a “surprise special guest”. Gillian Welch and David Rawlings will also take to the stage to sing the nominated song ‘When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings’ from The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’.
Still no word yet on whether or not Kendrick Lamar and SZA will perform the nominated song ‘All the Stars’ from Black Panther but here’s hoping.
