It’s officially red carpet season and the 2014 NAACP Image Awards are next to announce their list of nominees. With so many great strides made this year by entertainers of color, the lists are long, steep and very competitive.
Leading the movie pack are Fruitvale Station, 12 Years a Slave and The Butler. Janelle Monae, Bruno Mars, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Charlie Wilson and of course- Beyoncé- make up the musical nominations. However, the most interesting list is for Outstanding New Artist. It includes Candice Glover, Ariana Grande, Zendaya, K. Michelle and Ravaughn Brown.
It’s hard to tell who will win with this massive amount of talent in one pool. The NAACP Image Awards air February 22nd, beginning with red carpet coverage at 8/7c on TVOne.
