I'm Actually Not Mad at This Year's NAACP Image Award Nominations

I was all prepared to throw shade at the 46th annual NAACP Image Awards nominations, but after looking at the list there isn't really anything notable at which I can take aim (and I looked really hard too). I mean, I can't really fault a committee that has chosen to honor amazing (and often ignored) talent like Chadwick Boseman, Gugu Mbatha-Raw , Don Cheadle and Uzo Aduba.

But I'll try anyway. 

I am still a little confused about the criteria here (as I am every year). Are people like Sufe Bradshaw (Veep) and Nimrat Kaur (Homeland) not eligible? Because I looked twice for their names, and...they're not here. That's a travesty. Also, I have never seen a single episode of NCIS: LA, so I have to rely on you guys on this: is LL Cool J really that great on the show? Like, seriously? Because I don't even like him hosting that silly Grammy nomination special (does that still happen?). 

Anyway, you can read the full list of nominations here. You're in for a treat. 

The NAACP Image Awards will air live on February 6 at 9pm EST/8pm CST on TV One.

LL is "ok" on NCIS: LA. However, he's high profile and that's often enough to get Image Award noms.
