12 Years a Slave Wins Big at NAACP Image Awards


The NAACP Image Awards were held last night, and as expected 12 Years a Slave won the largest haul with 4 awards, including Best Motion Picture. The biggest surprise (to me, anyway) was that it lost Best Actor (Chiwetel Ejiofor) in favor of The Butler‘s Forest Whitaker.
