Here's the full list of winners from the 50th NAACP Image Awards

  /  03.31.2019

The NAACP Image Awards took over the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Saturday, March 30, with the who’s who of Black Hollywood in attendance.

Hosted by Anthony Anderson, the live broadcast on TV One was a big night for winners Ella Mai, the cast of Black Panther, the Carters and Congresswoman Maxine Waters.

Waters took home the Chairman’s Award and used his speech to send shots to the haters and President Trump, but also used the opportunity to praise and uplift millennials.

“I have the honor of being adopted by millennials as their Auntie Maxine and I’m so proud of their growing influence and presentation,” she said. “It’s a growing day in America. Women, people of color, LGBTQ Americans and millennials have growing power and my committee is a testament to it.”

She also took the moment to boast about her accomplishments as a politician, including her recent history-making appointment in the House Banking Committee. “After a long career journey, tonight I stand before you as the first woman and the first African American to chair the powerful U.S. House Financial Services Committee. And it is indeed an honor to hold the chairwoman’s gavel and yes, I got the gavel and I’m not afraid to use it.”

JAY-Z uplifted the strong women in his life while accepting the President’s Award and Beyoncé took home the biggest award of the night Entertainer of the Year.
