Mac sweeps tube laffer categories at NAACP kudofest
The 2005 kudos rush has come and gone, but Jamie Foxx‘s winning streak continues.
Foxx nabbed two prizes Saturday at the 36th NAACP Image Awards; for actor in a motion picture (“Ray”) and actor in a TV movie, mini or dramatic spesh (FX’s “Redemption”).
Kudofest, held at downtown’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, was hosted by Chris Tucker, and taped for airing Friday on Fox.
The NAACP also played favorites with Bernie Mac, whose eponymous skein swept the comedy series category. Mac also won for actor in a comedy series.
Taye Diggs‘ UPN show “Kevin Hill” got approval from the org, who feted Diggs with the Image for actor in a drama series.
In the music arena, winners included Usher (male artist), Fantasia (female artist), Destiny’s Child (duo or group) and Nancy Wilson (jazz artist).
Honorees included Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), saluted with the NAACP Chairman’s Award; Oprah Winfrey (Hall of Fame Award); and Prince (Vanguard Award).
Prince capped off the night with a performance — joining him onstage were Morris Day & the Time and Sheila E. An after-party was thrown at the Highlands.
