The 39th Annual NAACP Image Awards was relatively uneventful. Rapper Nas knew better than to attend the NAACP Image Awards wearing his Nigger t-shirt and comedian Katt Williams left the noose at home. And pedophile R. Kelly was no where to be found.
Janet Jackson took home an Image Award for Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture in "Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married?" And she looked fabulous!
The night definitely belonged to Denzel Washington and “The Great Debaters.” The film took home honors in the categories of Motion Picture, Actor in a Motion Picture, Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture, and Actress in a Motion Picture. I guess the Image Awards saw something different in “The Great Debaters” that the Academy Awards didn’t see.
“Honeydripper” took home honors in the category of Independent or Foreign Film.
Queen “Is She or Is She Not a Lesbian” Latifah snagged an award for Actress in a TV Movie, Miniseries or Dramatic Special for "Life Support."
Presidential very hopeful Senator Barack Obama took home an award, sort of. In the category of News/Information, Series or Special, "In Conversation: The Senator Barack Obama Interview won a 2008 NAACP Image Award.
Special honors went to Stevie Wonder, Ruby Dee, and Aretha Franklin.
