NAACP Image Awards




The National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People last night held their annual image awards, with 12 Years a Slave the predictable big winner.

The organisation’s awards will naturally differ from the Oscars in their exclusive focus on the recognition of achievements from people of colour. As a result, many of the big Academy Awards contenders do not fall within its remit.

12 Years a Slave has been cleaning up everywhere else, so it comes as no surprise that it also wins the top prize here too. The complete list of motion picture winners are below, but you can view television, literature and every other category on their website.
