12 YEARS A SLAVE is the Record-Breaking Winner of 8 Black Reel Awards



The accolades for 12 Years a Slave continue to pour in as we get closer to the final showdown at the Oscars next month. The latest praise comes from the 14th annual Black Reel Awards, which honors the best and brightest talent of color, for which the epic drama earned a staggering 8 awards--breaking the 2010 record previously set by Precious.

“The fact that in one of the strongest years for Black film in recent memory, one film was able to be so dominant is a testament to the vision of Steve McQueen, the screenplay by John Ridley and the fantastic performances of the trio of actors led by Chiwetel Ejiofor and Lupita Nyong’o,” said Black Reel Awards creator and Executive Director, Tim Gordon. “This will be a year no one forgets.”
Other winners include Danai Gurira, for her beautiful performance in Mother of George, Barkhad Abdi for Captain Phillips and the documentary 20 Feet from Stardom. Check out the full list below:
