Shocked & Surprised! Who Just Got A NAACP Image Awards Nomination?



The NAACP Image Awards were announced on Tuesday and while the usual suspects made the list, there were a few surprises.

HipHollywood was on hand as some of our favorite television stars announced the 47th NAACP Image Awards nominations. Tika Sumpter (The Have And The Have Nots), Guillermo Diaz (Scandal), Danielle Nicolet (Born Again Virgin), Marsai Martin and Miles Brown (Black-ish) revealed the nominees in the film, TV and music categories.

Of course How To Get Away With Murder and Scandal scored several nods in the Drama category, while, once again, Black-ish locked down the Comedy section. But newcomer Empire shocked everyone by nailed down a total 12 nominations in Drama and Music categories. Another surprise in the music category was Lauryn Hill who received two nominations after several years under the radar. While Janet dominated the category with six nominations!

In the film division Creed and Concussion were both nominated, along with their stars Michael B. Jordan and Will Smith respectively. Creed’s co-stars Phylica Rashad and Tessa Thompson also received love in the supporting actress category.
