"The Help" and "Jumping the Broom" Tie for Three Wins at the NAACP Image Awards




















If you're like me, you're probably sick of hearing about this doggone film. But, The Help is still stunting on every other film this year. From the acting categories to the other major categories, it seems to be the one to beat.

At tonight's NAACP Image Awards, the film swept up three categories, including wins for Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and--the big one--best picture.

Its strongest competitor (surprisingly) was Jumping the Broom, which also took home three awards including wins for best actor Laz Alonso, director Salim Akil and supporting actor Mike Epps.
