Nominations for the 51st NAACP Image Awards were announced Thursday, with ABC’s black-ish and Netflix’s When They See Us leading the comedy and drama pack, respectively.

black-ish scored eight total nominations, including recognition for Outstanding Comedy Series and six of its stars. (At the 2019 ceremony, black-ish won nearly every category for which it was nominated, including its fourth consecutive trophy for Outstanding Comedy Series). Both of its spinoffs, grown-ish and mixed-ish, also appear on the list of nominees.

On the drama front, When They See Us received nine nods, appearing in categories such as Outstanding TV Movie or Limited Series, Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series and Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series. Meanwhile, OWN’s Queen Sugar and NBC’s This Is Us each received five nominations.
