Trevor Noah Up For Another International Award

South African born comedian, Trevor Noah, has been nominated for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Awards.

The 52nd NAACP Image Award nomination list was announced virtually and Noah was nominated in the entertainer of the year category alongside the likes of How To Get Away With Murder star Viola Davis, production house boss Tyler Perry, and Watchmen star Regina King and DJ D-Nice.

This is Noah’s first time for being nominated for the award. In the past, The Daily Show which is hosted by Noah was nominated in the categories of outstanding talk series, outstanding variety show, outstanding host in a talk show/series and outstanding writing in a comedy series. Noah only won the outstanding writing in a comedy series category.

Moreover, leading the nomination list is Netflix with 51 nominations overall for titles across film and TV including Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Bridgerton and Da 5 Bloods.

Additional titles receiving nominations are ABC’s Black-ish, Miss Juneteenth, Soul, I May Destroy You and Issa Rey’s Insecure.

Starz’s sizzling drama series Power Book II: Ghost also made the nominations list in the category of outstanding drama series, outstanding supporting actress in a drama series and outstanding supporting male in a drama series.

NAACP president and chief executive Derrick Johnson said, “we are excited to recognise and celebrate this year’s nominees, who at times throughout this unprecedented year have provided moments of levity, brought our communities together, and lifted our spirits through culture when we needed it the most.”

The NAACP Image Awards are dedicated to honouring people of colour for their outstanding performances in film, television, music and literature. The 52nd NAACP Image Awards will take place virtually from the 22nd to the 26 of March.
