Speaker 2 (00:00:53) - The NAACP Awards is one of my favorite award shows, but it doesn't get as much hype as the Oscars or even the be t awards. It honors people of color responsible for that year's most outstanding achievements and performance in the motion picture television, recording and literature arts individuals and groups who worked to promote social justice through creativity are also spotlighted during this special event.

So the No Aacp Awards was held in Pasadena back in February, hosted by Queen Latifa this year.
It has so many.
Speaker 2 (00:01:52) - There were so many awards given out, and I wanted to share some of them since this show doesn't really get as much merit. So the Jackie Robinson Sports Award that went to none other than Miss Serena Williams, well-deserved.
There was a President's Award for humanitarian efforts, and that was given to Duane Wade and Gabrielle Union. Wade, the speech for his daughter was really the most touching because it talked about his son's decision to be a female, and he got a lot of flack from it still gets a lot of flack whenever he posts pictures of her.
Uh, you've got a lot of critics talking about still calling him a he, and although that's how he was born, I believe in calling people what they want to be called. And I did an episode back in my first or second season about that, about my name.
Speaker 2 (00:02:56) - People like to call you what they wanna call you instead of what you want to be called, if that's what he wants to be called, or she now that's what she wants to be called. But the speech that he gave about his support and love for her was really the best part of the night for me. If you get a chance, try and check that out on YouTube. Some facts about this show, the awards were first televised back in 1984, although presented in 1967, it changed into a multicultural award
show. Only members of the UN Nebel A C p Can Vote and Anthony Anderson has hosted the most with a record nine times.
That's why was surprised when he didn't host this year. Now, the Entertainer of the Year award should not come as a surprise. It was won by the incomparable Angela Bassett. She also won for Outstanding Actress in a drama series for 9 1 1.
Speaker 2 (00:03:57) - Now, I only started watching that show because of her and haven'tmissed a season, and I believe it's on Season seven right now, six or seven. And it's, it's really a great show. It comes on Monday nights Outstanding motion picture, went to Wakanda Forever. black Panther, and they also won for Outstanding Ensemble. The
Outstanding Ensemble. The outstanding actress in Emotion picture was Viola Davis in The Woman King. I won't argue with that. That was a phenomenal movie, a movie with primarily women in it and directed by a woman. That was great. The outstanding actor was Will Smith for emancipation. I caught that movie as well. And, uh, it was, it was a tough, it was tough to watch, you know, it was about slavery, but as usual, will Smith gave an outstanding performance.So I, I do recommend seeing that if you're not against Will Smith in tv.
Speaker 2 (00:05:00) - Abbott Elementary, one for outstanding comedy series. Actually, half the cast of Abbott Elementary took home an award, including the producer, Quinta Brunson for
producer, Quinta Brunson for
outstanding actress Cedric the Entertainer, won for Outstanding Actor in his comedy show, the Neighborhood, the Best Man, the final chapters, one for Outstanding TV movie, and I definitely couldn't agree more with that. Every episode was phenomenal. I didn't see one bad review about it online. Every actor, it, it's, it's, I don't know. It's, it's really a feel good movie. I suggest seeing that.Believe it's on Peacock Lizzo.
Watch out for the Big Girls, one for Outstanding Reality program.
Speaker 2 (00:05:51) - Jennifer Hudson's talk show, one for Outstanding Talk show host. I love her Now in music. The outstanding album went to Beyonce's Renaissance. I don't know if I can agree with that,
although I am a Beyonce fan. Uh,
that album didn't really do it for me, but congratulations to her.
The outstanding new artist went to Coco Jones. I'm not really familiar with her in the literary Works. Viola Davis, one for outstanding work and fiction for finding me. And if you remember, I did a review on that a few months
ago. That is an amazing audio book and book, so I recommended you check that out for podcasts, outstanding Lifestyle Podcast. Went to Therapy for Black Girls. I listened to that. Laar Burton, he won For Society and Culture. The, I believe it's Get Funny or The Real Funny Mamas Won for Arts and Entertainment. So I'll check that out on endo laco awards.com.
