The 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards were definitely a night to remember. The best and the brightest in Black Hollywood converged at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium to celebrate their accomplishments both on the small and big screen.
TV One, the new broadcast partner for the NAACP Image Awards, delivered a smooth and seamless awards show, kicking off with a one hour red carpet special hosted by Kevin Frazier and Tanika Ray. Tika Sumpter (“The Have And Have Nots”), Idris Elba (“Luther”) and Wendy Raquel Robinson (“The Game”) were just some of the celebrities bringing vintage Hollywood glamour with their elegant ensembles.
Anthony Anderson brought the laughs as the emcee of the awards show, taking some digs at certain White celebrities who couldn’t seem to get it together in 2013. Anderson said of Miley Cyrus: “Enough with the twerking, you ain’t got nothing to twerk!”
Below are some highlights from our favorite moments at the Image Awards:
Nyong’o continued her winning streak this awards season by picking up Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her work in “12 Years A Slave.” The talented actress thanked her co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor for “keeping me grounded.”
For the second year in a row, “Scandal” won Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actress for Kerry Washington. The expectant mama-to-be delivered a message from the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, “When you honor a show with a lead actor of color, you open the door for the next.”
