NAACP Image Awards Winners

NAACP Image Awards: black-ish, Empire, The Wiz Live Lead TV Winners

The 47th NAACP Image Awards were handed out on Friday, and ABC’s black-ish led the TV pack with five total wins, including for best comedy series and lead actors Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.

Fox’s Empire followed with three wins, while NBC’s The Wiz Live grabbed two prizes. ABC’s Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder went into the ceremony with four nods each, but only the former’s Joe Morton walked away a winner.

    Too bad they don’t recognize Daytime, because Obba Babatunde did great work on B&B this year.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      They had daytime categories until 2014. I reckon the pickings got too slim, with [counting on fingers…] what, four soaps now?

      • tallsy says:

        They could declare the Tyler Perry shows soap operas even if they’re not in daytime. I’m sure he and certainly the actors wouldn’t mind.

  2. Tracee says:

    Doesn’t Joe Morton win that same award every year? No disrespect, he’s very talented. Also, Anderson hosted again? Where’s Chapelle when you need him?

    The fact that two of the kids from BLACK-ish won makes me sooooo happy!!!!

    • Jules says:

      Totally agree!!!!! The kids are the best part of that show and have such great chemistry. Marsai Martin kills it every episode.

  5. ABG says:

    Joe Morton is, tbqh, the worst part of Scandal.

  6. Matrod says:

    So are people of color only black because I don’t see many Latinos or Asians or other minorities on that list. #IMAGESOBLACK

    • Fanie says:

      Totally agree with you. See why I always says that the black race are the racist of them all

      • LADY_in_MD says:

        If you take the time to look at the nominees you will see plenty of different races also In the past the NAACP image awards have nominated Black ,Latino, White and Asian actors, actresses and musicians

    Doc McStuffins over Sophia the First? Racists!

    Ultimately, this little sucker has a bit more punch than you might expect, but rarely does
    one complain of having a surplus of power and charm as this
    tool certainly does. Finally, each time you use any of your woodworking power
    tools, remember that you need a good dose of common sense.
    The cabinet walls should be adjusted for them
    to fit well.
