Comedian and now eight-time NAACP Winner, Anthony Anderson, secures the win for Outstanding Actor In A Comedy Series at the 2022 NAACP Image Awards.
Anderson, 51, had quite the productive evening accepting his award-winning in-between his hilarious hosting duties of the live show.
“I told ya’ll I was gon’ win!,” he excitedly screamed as he grabbed the camera. He then ran out to the main stage to chest bump his equally funny co-host–his mother, Doris Hancox.
“I’d like to thank my mama for sleeping with my daddy,” he joked. “I’d like to shout out my family. I’m just a kid from Compton. So shout out Compton, California – if you have a dream and you believe, anything is possible,” he finished, before asking his mom if she’d like to share more words.
“Bout time ya’ll got it right,” screamed Hancox with Anderson replying, “no mama, they got it right the last eight years.”
Also nominated in the category was Cedric The Entertainer (The Neighborhood), Jay Ellis (Insecure), Elisha ‘EJ’ Williams (The Wonder Years), Don Cheadle (Black Monday).
