Awards Season Heats Up over Busy Weekend

Big Winners: Black-ish, Adele and La-La Land

The NAACP, Grammys and British Academy Awards were all handed out this weekend. The festivities kicked off with the Image Awards, a Friday and Saturday event with only the second night being televised.

The sitcom Black-ish (6) took home the most TV trophies, Beyonce (5) garnered the most in music for her concept album, “Lemonade,” while the gay empowerment drama Moonlight (4) landed the most among the movie entrants.

On Sunday, Adele (5) dominated the Grammys, winning for Album (“25), Record, Song (“Hello”) and Solo Performance of the Year. In the process, she beat out Beyonce’, who only prevailed in the  Music Video and Urban Contemporary categories.

Meanwhile, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts was staging its award ceremony across the pond. La La Land (5) continued its victory tour, adding notches to its belt in the Best Picture, Actress (Emma Stone), Director (Damien Chazelle), Original Music and Cinematography categories. 

Factoring in the results of these three shows, it’s hard to say which film has the best chance to give La La a run for its money at the Oscars. Moonlight has certainly received the second most accolades on the awards circuit, although box-office favorite Hidden Figures might be building momentum.

And you can’t count out Fences, between the highly-lauded performances of co-stars Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, and the pressure being put on the Academy to be more ethnically inclusive after snubbing minorities entirely a couple years in a row. The Oscars will air live on ABC-TV on Sunday, February 26th at 8:30 pm ET and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
