    No Danai Gurira for Mother of George??? It's kind of laughable and disappointing that she wasn't nominated. The outstanding actress in a motion picture category is horrific.

  • Sergio | January 10, 2014 4:57 PMReply

    NO ONE takes the Image Awrads seriously. I susect the real reason why anyone shows up to the event must be because they give one hell of party afterwards. I'm truly surprised that Jono Oliver got a nomination for best director. Not becuse Home is bad, just the oppoiste it's really good. But because the NAACP always avoids black indie films like the bubonic plague.

  • ao | January 10, 2014 4:26 PMReply

    Did I miss something? Who does these nominations?

    Why aren't Isaiah Washington and Taquan Richmond nominated for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor respectively, for BLUE CAPRICE?

    The BUTLER was all about Forest Whitaker and Oprah. Although the others are fabulous talents, there roles here weren't stand-outs.

    On the doc nominations, what happened to GOD LOVES UGANDA and LET THE FIRE BURN?

  • JulieB | January 10, 2014 11:05 AMReply

    Some of these nominations are just plain stupid. I wonder how Danai Gurira wasn't nominated for anything?? She's one of the most popular and talented black actresses on tv, and her show is world famous. Not sure why Best Man Holiday was nominated in the same category as 12 Years, Butler, Mandela, it's not even on the same level as these films!! Mother of George should've taken it's place. I like that people of color have our own awards shows, but to give the awards more legitimacy, they need to tighten up on the quality of shows/films they nominate. Tyler Perry's Peeples was terrible!!

  • Shanae | January 10, 2014 8:15 AMReply

    I'm with Akimbo - the Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture category is about as bad as it gets .

    And I'm really not sure why the NAACP Image Awards has the Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series category.

    I won't be watching this award show anyway, so I should just keep quiet lol.

  • Huh | January 10, 2014 1:05 AMReply

    Why the hell isnt Ryan coogler nominated for best directors?

  • AGREED | January 10, 2014 3:40 PM

    That is by far the most shocking omission...

  • Akimbo | January 9, 2014 11:50 PMReply

    The Outstanding Actress in a motion picture category is so WEAK. Not because of the actresses, but because of the undeserving projects and roles. Here's hoping for better high profile leading roles for black females in 2014.

    I love that A.N.T. Farm and the boy from Jessie were nominated. I sill struggle with House of Lies being considered a comedy, but more power to them. Looking forward to a better vehicle for Vanessa L Williams in 2014 as well.

  • IRIS | January 9, 2014 5:35 PMReply

    I hoped that '42' would be nominated for outstanding motion picture, but I guess there were too many great Black films this year. Although I would have swapped out 'Best Man Holiday' for '42.' And what's with them nominating Keke Palmer for 'Crazy Sexy Cool?' Everyone knows the breakout star of that movie was Lil Mama.
