It’s that time of year again! On Friday, Feb. 5, the 47th NAACP Image Awards will take place and stars like Will Smith, Kerry Washington, Gabrielle Union and Oprah Winfrey will be in attendance. To watch the show, as well as the exciting red carpet coverage, check out the live stream video here!
We’re so excited! The NAACP Image Awards, which airs tonight, Feb. 5, will bring some of our favorite celebs together to celebrate “the outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts, as well as those individuals or groups who promote social justice through their creative endeavors.” To watch the show, as well as the red carpet coverage, click below!
The 47th annual NAACP Image Awards will start at 9p.m. ET, but the red carpet coverage will begin an hour earlier at 8p.m. ET. Both will be broadcasted live at TV One, but you can watch the awards night online by clicking here.
Stars expected to attend include Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, Oprah Winfrey, Ken Jeong, Taraji P. Henson, Gina Rodriguez, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. It’s interesting to see that Will and Jada will be at the awards show, as they recently decided to boycott this year’s Academy Awards after it was revealed that no actor of color was nominated in any of the 20 acting awards. Clearly, this is an awards show they approve of for obvious reasons (it’s an awards show that’s all inclusive).
“There’s a position that we hold in this community, and if we’re not part of the solution, we’re part of the problem,” Will recently said during an interview on Good Morning America.
