'Precious' sweeps NAACP Image Awards

February 28, 2010 |  2:02 pm

Precious Poster 4 "Precious" won six NAACP Image Awards at the 41st annual kudosfest Friday night including best picture, director, screenplay, lead (Gabourey Sidibe) and supporting (Mo'Nique) actress. The film contends in all those categories at next week's Oscars. Mo'Nique -- a virtual shoo-in at the Academy Awards -- also won best talk show for the first season of her BET series.

Another Oscar nominee -- Morgan Freeman -- won best actor for "Invictus" while Adam Rodriguez won the supporting prize for "Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All by Myself." The prolific Perry -- who received the Chairman's Award -- saw his TV hit "House of Payne" win four prizes again this year, repeating for comedy series as well as supporting players Lance Gross and Keshia Knight Pulliam while Cassie Davis won her first lead actress award.

Daryl “Chill” Mitchell kept "Payne" from sweeping the comedy acting awards, winning for his leading role on "Brothers." Show co-host Hill Harper won the lead drama actor prize for the third consecutive year for "CSI: New York" while Jada Pinkett Smith took home her first Image Award after seven nominations over the years for her leading role on the debut season of the medical drama "Hawthorne." And "Lincoln Heights" broke the four-year winning streak of "Grey's Anatomy" by prevailing in the drama series category.
