The 52nd annual NAACP Image Awards concluded its festivities on Saturday with a primetime ceremony. Hosted by Anthony Anderson, the NAACP Image awards celebrate African-American stories and excellence. Non-film winners included D-Nice for Performer of the Year, Lebron James for the Presidents Award, and Eddie Murphy for the Hall of Fame Award.

Given the limited amount of films released this year, the Motion Picture Categories were somewhat predictable. Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis both won for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” “Soul” took home several awards, and Radha Blank finally received deserved recognition for “The Forty-Year-Old Version.” Check out the full list of winners below.
