Bad-ass black women in the finest fashions, fierce and poised


2020 NAACP Image Awards: Women to Watch, Nominees, Red Carpet and More

The 51st NAACP Image Awards returns to Pasadena, California on Saturday, February 22, 2020.  The biggest event of the year celebrating African American achievement across film, television, music, and literature will air live on BET for the first time ever.

Expect to see big wins for women of color.  All the inspo you need to level up in 2020.

It took us a while to get here, but Black women made historical moves in the past year from the arts to activism to the halls of the US Congress.  We even got a real life Black Princess.  

Who are this year’s nominees?  Nominations announced and online voting for the 51st NAACP Image Awards opens on January 9th via the NAACP Image Awards website.  

The Red Carpet is my favorite part of the awards show.  You don’t want to miss the biggest names in Black Hollywood bring their best beauty A-game.  SO much yes.

7 Women to Watch for BIG Wins:   

Jodie Turner (Queen & Slim)

Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish)

Lena Waith (Queen & Slim)

Regina King (One Night In Miami)

Marsai Martin (Black-ish)

Megan Thee Stallion (Rapper)

Ashley Blaine Featherson (Dear White People)

Movie of the Year:  “Harriet”.  Because she’s bad-ass.  And did I tell you that In my high school talent show, I performed a 2 minute original monologue emulating her life and won 1st place.  Hail to the Queen!
