Musicians HER, Lil Nas X and Jennifer Hudson were selected as top candidates for the NAACP Image Awards after the nominations were announced.
The NAACP’s annual award celebrates the achievement of art.
Singer-songwriter HER was given six nods, including the best female artist and the best album (Back Of My Mind).
Bruno Mars and Anderson Park’s collaborations Chloe, Drake, Jazmine Sullivan and Silk Sonic each have four nominations, with Hudson, Lil Nas X, Questlove and Sawty each having three nominations. I’m waiting.
Industry Baby Rapper Lil Nas X and Respect Actress Hudson face Megan Thee Stallion, Regina King and Tiffany Haddish to win the Entertainer of the Night Grand Prize this year.
Rapper Doja Cat has also been nominated for several categories.
In the film and television category, Netflix’s western drama The Harder They Fall won 12 nominations, as did HBO’s Insecure.
Alongside The Harder They Fall, Judas & Black Messiah, King Richard, Respect, and America vs. Billy Holiday will all be competing for outstanding movie trophies.
Other TV shows with multiple nominations include Blackish, Pose, Genius: Aresa.
