Beyonce, ‘Black Panther’ win big at 50th NAACP Image Awards

Beyonce, ‘Black Panther’ win big at 50th NAACP Image Awards

Beyonce was named entertainer of the year at the NAACP Image Awards ceremony that highlighted works by entertainers and writers of colour.

After Beyonce accepted the award Saturday night, the superstar paid homage to the people who were nominated in the same category as her. She beat out LeBron James, Regina King, Chadwick Boseman and Ryan Coogler.

“Regina King, I love you so much. You taught us patience, persistence and how to be masterful in your craft,” she said. “Chadwick Boseman is teaching children to dream and to see as kings. LeBron James has taught us the strength of all forms, leading by example and providing education to our kids. Ryan Coogler tells our stories in a way that celebrates our history and proves we do have power,” Beyonce said.

She added, “I’m honored to be included among all of you, and to be a part of a vital and thriving community. Thank you to the NAACP.”

Beyonce released a joint album last year with her husband, Jay-Z, called “Everything is Love.” The prolific singer also paid tribute to historically black colleges and universities, as well as the dance troupes and step teams at HBCUs during her ground-breaking two-hour Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival performance. She also performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which is known as the national black anthem, at the festival and donated 100,000 dollars to four black universities shortly after her performance.

‘Black Panther’ was awarded for the best motion picture. The Marvel blockbuster hit beat out BlacKkKlansman, Crazy Rich Asians, If Beale Street Could Talk and The Hate U Give. The superhero film was a box-office hit domestically and a cultural phenomenon. It earned 700 million dollars domestically during its theatrical run.

The awards ceremony aired live on TV One at the Dolby Theatre, the same venue that hosts the Academy Awards.
