    Tyler Perry was the biggest winner at this year's National Association For The Advancement Of Coloured People's Image Awards. The writer and director scooped three awards at the US ceremony, which took place on Saturday (March 5).

    His film For Coloured Girls was named Best Movie, while Perry was named Best Director for the same project.

    His TV series Tyler Perry's House Of Payne won Best Comedy Series.

    Denzel Washington was named Best Actor for The Book Of Eli and Halle Berry scooped Best Actress for Frankie and Alice.

    Berry praised the organisation on her victory, saying: "If it were not for the NAACP, a little girl like me would not have had wind beneath her wings in a small town in Ohio. I have never been more proud to be a black woman.

    She was presented with her award by Prince.[/QUOTE]

    All I hear about on the news is how Tyler Perry swept all of the NAACP awards. But, who else was going to win them? Why is this a big deal?

    If we created a Jetsinsider.com awards ceremony, wouldn't people from Jetsinsider "sweep" the awards? Discuss.

    Better question is...why in 2011 with an African American in the White House.. are African Americans represented in mainstream award ceremonies while also continuing to maintain their own exclusionary shows/news programs/entertainment networks?

    :dunno:

    I blame Tiger Woods and Eminem. There used to be rules.
