TBS Tops NAACP Image Awards Nominations


TBS set the pace for the cable industry's NAACP Image Awards nominations, announced Wednesday.

The "very funny" network led all cable network nominations with 11, followed by Lifetime Movie Network, which drew 10 nods. Overall 19 cable networks drew acknowledgements from The NAACP Image Awards, which honor multicultural excellence in television, music and movies.

TBS comedy Tyler Perry's House Of Payne drew nominations in all five comedy categories, including best comedy series where it will look to defend last year's win against TBS series Are We There Yet?, NBC's 30 Rock, Fox's Glee and ABC's Modern Family.

Cable networks nearly swept all entries in the Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special category. PBS' Filling The Gap was the lone broadcast entry, competing against History's America: The Story Of Us (part 4), BBC America's Luther, and Lifetime Movie Networks' Sins Of the Mother and The Wronged Man for top honors in the category.
