LOS ANGELES-The NAACP Image Awards got a grand kickoff with its annual nominees luncheon at the Loews Hollywood Hotel on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017. With the exception of “Scandal” star Joe Morton and “Black-ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross, the red carpet was missing many of the heavy hitters that are expected to show up at the actual show on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017.
Nonetheless, the event was still just as interesting with Lethal Weapon’s Keesha Sharp, “Underground” star Amirah Vann, “Moonlight” actor Trevante Rhodes, “The Soul Man” centerpiece Niecy Nash, and a double-dose of Kunte Kinte (LeVar Burton, Malachi Kirby) made their way to the media onslaught that is called the red carpet.
