2021 NAACP Image Awards: Complete List Of Winners

The 52nd annual NAACP Image Awards took place last night (March 27th), airing on CBS, BET, and numerous other stations. Among the night’s big winners, Beyoncé notably (and unsurprisingly) won four awards, continuing her domination of this awards show season and earning the most awards than anyone else. Eddie Murphy was awarded the Hall of Fame award during the broadcast in recognition of his outstanding comedic and acting career. Other winners include Drake, who won outstanding male artist for the first time, and Jhené Aiko, who won the outstanding album category after receiving a Grammy nominee for Chilombo
