Awards Season Marches On: the NAACP Image Awards

The Oscars, the Golden Globes, and the Grammys have been doled out to the most deserving talent, but the awards show season isn't over yet. On Friday night, the stars gathered in Los Angeles for the 38th Annual NAACP Image Awards, which honor artists, particularly those of color, across movies, TV, and music.

Many of this year's honorees are well-awarded already, including Jennifer Hudson, "Ugly Betty," and Mary J. Blige.
