    Congrats Toni! I think her song would have won a grammy this year too if it were nominated in the correct category. It belonged in Best Traditional R%B Song.

    Congrats Bey and Jay. I like that they attended and showed their support to the NAACP.

    Congrats to ALL the nominees and winners. I still have to watch that Regina King movie. It has been on my task list for a while.

  2. Jeans March 31, 2019

    Bey sounded very nervous. It was cute!

  3. whiteNigga101 March 31, 2019

    To be honest, this is very pathetic

  4. MUSICHEAD March 31, 2019

    Entertainer of the year? I wonder how much Beyonce paid for that one.

  5. MessyBoots March 31, 2019

    I really enjoyed the 50th annual NAACP awards especially during the tribute for the honorary millennial ‘auntie’ Rep. Maxine Waters. Of course, Bey and Jay stole the entire program when they joined the audience midway through the live event. Did not expect them to be there so that surprised me! I think Bey is gearing herself up to be more ‘present’ in the meda in preparation for upcoming Lion King promotion, which is awesome. First GLAAD and now this.. congrats to all the winners btw.

  6. My third eye March 31, 2019

    I think they also vindicated a few people who deserved Grammys who lost to people because of popularity.

  7. Karter March 31, 2019

    Did you even see the nominees she was competing against…it was obvious Beyoncé would win that award. You seriously believe that the MOST AWARDED ARTIST ALIVE (only 2nd to MJ and Whitney Houston) gives that much of AF about an award to pay for it? 😂😂 Do better!

  8. Karter March 31, 2019

    Toni Living Legend Braxton!! ❤❤

  9. Gee March 31, 2019

    Why would The Carters miss this award show with JayZ being bestowed upon such a prestigious award. I am sure it only added more hype to the show with Jay and B showing up. Also you know that B was going to win EOTY since they did not win in any other category. They only won the two biggest honors of the night. This award shows are all the same now if a big name shows up it is because they are being honored or expect to win big.

  10. K.B. March 31, 2019

    Viola Davis was robbed again, Taraji. P .Hansen is not and will never be a better actress than Viola davis.

    • Jasmine March 31, 2019

      I don’t like Viola. She makes idiotic comments to the press and her personality in character and not in character is the same…dry, stuffy, and snooty!

  11. Tyler March 31, 2019


  12. Truth March 31, 2019

    The fact that Letoya Luckett wasn’t nominated for GreenLeaf as a guest actress is obsurbed…

    • Jasmine March 31, 2019

      Her role is not worthy compared to the other nominees. When her character was revealing she had set up the minister her delivery was not good. That was her opportunity to show she can really act but she failed at owning the scene!

  13. Black Army Cheiftan March 31, 2019

    I do not support these hoodwinked cooned out puppeteers. When was the last time we seen a black dynamic duo? Sadly not since the likes of Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. The blacks of this generation have got wrong, wrong and all wrong. Black beauty does not exist today and these two are nowhere near hitting the mark.

  14. Kimi April 1, 2019

    Beauty and the Beast
    I’m so sick of their stiff poses
    They’re not royalty
    She looked better 2003 – 2006 carefree

  15. strange April 2, 2019

    Janelle monae should have won for outstanding album.. she deserves that.
