NAACP Image Awards: Empire, Power, black-ish, Insecure Among Winners

The 49th NAACP Image Awards were handed out on Monday night, coinciding with Martin Luther King Jr. Day for the first time in the ceremony’s history.

The two-hour broadcast featured several first-time winners, including Power‘s Omari Hardwick and Insecure‘s Jay Ellis, the latter of whom nabbed a trophy on his first nomination for the HBO comedy.

There were also a number of repeat victors: ABC’s black-ish took home its fourth consecutive award for Outstanding Comedy Series, as did stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson (who also hosted the ceremony) in the lead actor categories. Taraji P. Henson triumphed for the third year in a row, winning Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for Empire, and Scandal‘s Joe Morton earned his fourth Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama award for his work in the ABC series.

The annual gala celebrates the achievements and performances of people of color in the arts, as well as those who promote social justice through creative endeavors. Below is the full list of television winners.
