Last night, Chadwick Boseman attended the 50th Annual NAACP Image Awards – and picked up the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in Black Panther! The trophy for Entertainer of the Year went to Beyoncé, beating Chadwick Boseman, LeBron James, Regina King, and Ryan Coogler. She made sure to acknowledge her fellow nominees while accepting the award. “I’m honored to be included among all of you and to be part of a vital, thriving, beautiful community,” she said.
Black Panther sweeped the film awards, as it won the marquee Outstanding Motion Picture award, Outstanding Ensemble Cast in a Motion Picture award, Ryan Coogler the Outstanding Directing in a Motion Picture and Outstanding Writing in a Motion Picture award with Joe Robert Cole, Danai Gurira the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture award, Michael B. Jordan the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture award, Letitia Wright the Breakthrough Performance award and the soundtrack received two awards as well. WOW, right?
