NAACP IMAGE AWARDS CORRECT OSCAR'S MISTAKE


So the Image Awards are rarely on point. Even this year, over several categories, they could hardly be further from 'Best' anything. But they gave Selma the respect it deserves, which The Academy was not willing to do. I didn't post their nominees, not having been sufficiently impressed by them back when they didn't promise to be among this awards season's highlights. Oh, how times have changed. All the details of NAACP's choices below:
