The 2022 NAACP Image Awards, which honor achievement by people of color in culture and entertainment, were presented on Saturday. Jennifer Hudson and Will Smith were among the night’s big winners.

Hudson earned the event’s awards for Entertainer of the Year and outstanding actress in a motion picture for her performance as Aretha Franklin in the film “Respect.”

Meanwhile, Smith was named Outstanding Actor for his portrayal of Richard Williams, the father of tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams in “King Richard.”

Winners from some of the more than 80 categories were also announced in virtual ceremonies throughout the week, with Regina King, Kevin Hart, and Taraji P. Henson among the artists recognized pre-telecast.

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, were honored with the President’s Award. He showed gratitude to the NAACP for welcoming him into their community before he spoke about those in Ukraine impacted by the ongoing Russian attack.

The awards ceremony aired live on BET from Los Angeles with some talent appearing in person while others watched virtually. There was no in-person audience.
