Beyonce won this year’s Entertainment Award at the 50th annual NAACP Image Awards that highlighted the work of colorful artists and writers on NAACP Image Awards 2019.
After Beyonce agreed to the award on Saturday night, the star praised the people who had been nominated from the same category. She defeated LeBron James, the Los Angeles Lakers, Regina King, Chadwick Busman and Ryan Cockler.
“Regina King, I love you so much, you taught us patience, perseverance and how to be brilliant in your craft.” Chadwick Busman teaches children to dream and be seen as kings. We have taught LeBron James the power of all forms, leading by example and providing education for our children. Ryan Coogler narrates our stories in a way that celebrates our history and proves that we have power. “
Smollett who was accused by the police of an alleged hate crime attack, did not attend the awards ceremony. He was nominated for a senior supporting actor in a drama series about “Empire” – a role that may be in danger.
Smollett maintained his innocence and said he had been “honest and consistent” since the beginning of the story as NAACP Image Awards 2019.
Rockets left The Daily Show host Trevor Noah in the stitches, but not everyone was amused. Yara Shahidi, actress in “Black-ish”, accepted an award for the show and told the audience, “Stand up with Josie.”
On the television side, “black-ish” won the best comedy and starring series Tracee Ellis-Ross and Anthony Anderson – Anderson also hosted MC’d Saturday – won Best Actress and Best Actress in Comedy, respectively. Starz’s “Power” won Best Drama, while Omari Hardwick won the Best Actor award.
