The NAACP Image Awards Nominate WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE?, Like Everyone Should



I don't know how What Happened, Miss Simone? became the redheaded stepchild of this award season, but it has. And it's upsetting. It is by far the best documentary this year (Amy, be damned) and needs to win all the things. So far, the NAACP Image Awards is one of the only groups that remember this as it was nominated in the best documentary category. *slow clap*

The rest of the nominations list is pretty predictable, including Black-ish, Scandal, Beasts of No Nation, and Creed--with very few laughable nominees (which include Dope). I know it is film or TV, but I have to take this time to express my utter excitement for all the awards love given to rock group Alabama Shakes for their amazing album, Sound & Color. They're nominated here for Outstanding Group, Duo or Collaboration, and they also appear in several categories on the Grammy Award nominations list. If you haven't listened to their music yet, you need to. That's a mandate. In fact, here is "Gimme All Your Love," an instant classic.

Check out the rest of the TV and film nominees:
