2011 NAACP Image Award Winners in Film Categories

The 42nd NAACP Image Awards ceremony was held Friday night (March 4th) at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. The Image Awards celebrate and honor the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of film, television, music, and literature. The awards also honor individuals or groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors.

This honor isn’t just for African-Americans/Black people, as Latino and Asian and Asian American artists have also received awards and nominations. In fact, Sofia Vergara, the Columbia-born actress and star of ABC’s hit series, “Modern Family,” won an Image Award this year. I was unable to watch the entire awards broadcast (on FOX), so a hearty thank you to the website for their complete winners list.
