The 48th NAACP Image Awards
Held on February 11, 2017, in Pasadena, California. Hosted by Anthony Anderson.

Once again, it was a big night for the girls of Black-ish, Yara Shahidi, 17, above, and Marsai Martin. The show won Outstanding Comedy Series and several other awards.

Marsai Martin, 12, won Outstanding Performance by a Youth for Black-ish (where she beat her TV brother, Miles Brown) and was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (where she lost to Tichina Arnold for Survivor's Remorse).
