The 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards aired last night on television network, TVOne. Our favorite lady, Beyonce Knowles-Carter, was nominated for 2 awards at this year’s ceremony: “Outstanding Female Artist” and “Outstanding Documentary.”
Mrs. Carter received honors as “Outstanding Female Artist,” beating out R&B songstresses India.Aire, Janelle Monae, Ledisi, and Mary J. Blige. This is Beyonce’s second time winning this coveted award – the first in 2009.
Beyonce’s HBO-released documentary, Life Is But A Dream lost out to the competition. Richard Pryor’s Omit The Logic took home that award instead.
The NAACP Image Awards are presented annually by the historical National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. A committee of members for the civil rights group handpicks the Image Award winners.
Beyonce could not be in attendance to accept her award. Currently, she is back out on international tour in Europe with the Mrs. Carter Show.
