Images of Success
Tyler Perry was the big winner of the 2011 NAACP Image Awards. The Actor/Director won Outstanding Motion Picture with For Colored Girls (which beat Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too?) as well as Outstanding Directing in a Motion Picture (For Colored Girls). Perry also had the Outstanding Comedy Series (Tyler Perry’s House of Payne). Click the image to enlarge.
Denzel Washington (The Book of Eli) and Halle Berry (Frankie & Alice) won for Outstanding Actor and Actress in a Motion Picture. And one of my artistic heroes, Aaron McGruder, won the Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series award for The Boondocks. I wonder if Tyler and Aaron had a chat about that infamous “Winston Jerome” episode.
