The NAACP Image Awards have handed out the awards for their 52nd annual ceremony, with Anthony Anderson hosting for the eighth year in a row. 

Anderson was already a winner before the televised ceremony, having won an award at Friday’s non-televised ceremony for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series for Black-ish

Black-ish couldn’t take the Outstanding Comedy Series prize, however, as that win went to Insecure, with Issa Rae picking up the win in Comedy Actress for her HBO show as well.Power Book II: Ghost won things on the Drama Series side. 

Over in the film categories, Bad Boys For Life was the big winner of the night, earning the award for Outstanding Motion Picture. 

Chadwick Boseman pulled in two posthumous wins for his leading performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and his supporting turn in Da 5 Bloods

His Ma Rainey co-star Viola Davis won the Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture award, as well as pulling in a double win for herself by also earning the prize for Drama Series Actress for How To Get Away With Murder.
