A number of famous faces gathered together in Pasadena, Calif., tonight for the 46th Annual NAACP Image Awards, which recognizes the best in African-American achievements in entertainment, including TV, movie and music.
Selma, How to Get Away With Murder, Black-ish and Taraji P. Henson were among the top honors tonight, but before we get to some of the big winners, let's recap a few highlights from the live telecast...
Host Anthony Anderson instantly got the energy up by opening the show with his own rendition of "Uptown Funk," and was even joined by a few dancers on stage. Although their moves and Anderson's remix were surely admirable, the best part of their performance was when they had to dance around Oprah Winfrey's empty chair and seat card because she was late. Oops!
Along with being the master of ceremonies, Anderson was also a winner tonight. The man of many hats did a great job switching between Anthony Anderson, award winner, and Anthony Anderson, NAACP Image Awards host, by straightening his stance and deepening his voice. Well done, sir.
