The 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards went off without a hitch earlier this evening (February 22) with "12 Years a Slave" continuing to make waves snagging the biggest prize of the night.
Before her film won Outstanding Motion Picture, the gorgeous Lupita Nyong'o
added another piece of hardware to her already impressive collection taking home a trophy for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, while Kerry Washington
snagged up her second Image Award with a win for Best Actress in a Dramatic Series. Kerry's show "Scandal
" also won Outstanding Drama Series.
In addition, the hilarious Kevin Hart
took home Entertainer of the Year, while Oprah Winfrey
paid tribute to the late Nelson Mandela
with a touching speech and musical dedication.
"He was everything we have all have heard and more. He was humble and he was unscathed by any kind of bitterness after all that we know he's been through," Winfrey said.
