‘Birth of a Nation,’ ‘Moonlight’ Score Six NAACP Image Award Nominations (Full List)

Barry Jenkins’ coming-of-age drama “Moonlight” and Nate Parker’s historical drama “Birth of a Nation” have scored six NAACP Image Award nominations each, while “Loving” took five.

Both “Moonlight” and “Birth of a Nation” received best picture nominations along with “Fences,” “Hidden Figures” and “Loving.” Parker received three nominations for directing, writing and best actor in a motion picture.

Beyonce received seven nominations, including in the entertainer of the year category. The other nominees for entertainer of the year are Viola Davis, Regina King, Dwayne Johnson and Chance the Rapper.

Winners for the 48th Image Awards will be announced Feb. 11 at ceremonies hosted by Anthony Anderson.

These awards mark the first major recognition for Parker since this summer’s revelations about his involvement in a 1999 rape case, in which he was acquitted. The unidentified victim killed herself in 2012 after swallowing nearly 200 sleeping pills. “Birth of a Nation” had taken the top awards at the Sundance Film Festival in January. The movie has grossed $15.8 million domestically since its release in early October.

Nominees for top comedy series went to “Atlanta,” ”Black-ish,” ”Insecure,” ”Survivor’s Remorse” and “The Carmichael Show.”  Best drama series nominations went to “Empire,” ”Power,” ”Queen Sugar,” ”This Is Us” and “Underground.”
