Black-ish’, ‘Black Panther’ & Beyonce Win Big at NAACP Image Awards


At last night’s star-studded NAACP Image Awards, Beyonce won “Entertainer of the Year Honors.” In her acceptance speech she propped up others who were nominated in the same category …    LeBron James, Regina King, Chadwick Boseman and director Ryan Coogler:

“Regina King, I love you so much. You taught us patience, persistence and how to be masterful in your craft. Chadwick Boseman is teaching children to dream and to be seen as kings. LeBron James has taught us the strength of all forms, leading by example and providing education to our kids.  Ryan Coogler tells our stories in a way that celebrates our history and proves we do have power.”  

“Black Panther” won “Best Motion Picture,” beating out “BlacKkKlansman,” ″Crazy Rich Asians,” ″If Beale Street Could Talk” and “The Hate U Give.”   Black Panther” won in several other categories, including best actor in a motion picture which went to Chadwick Boseman, supporting actor in a motion picture — Michael B. Jordan, and directing in a motion picture for Ryan Coogler.



The ABC comedy hit “Black-ish” won ‘Outstanding Comedy Series,’ with Anthony Anderson winning best actor honors for the show and Marsai Martin snagging outstanding performance by a youth in the show.

But… trending big time was comedian Chris Rock who presented the Black-ish award, but couldn’t resist a jab at actor Jussie Smollett after being told “no Smollett jokes,” labeling Smollett a “waste light skin.”  Smollett who was originally slated to attend, was a no-show.


And, everybody loves ‘Auntie Maxine’ who was also recognized …
