The NAACP has just announced its nominees for its annual Image Awards and we are thrilled to report that they have nominated Cary Fukunawa’s Sin Nombre for Outstanding Foreign Motion Picture. A full list of all nominees can found on the NAACP Image Awards web site here.

Established in1967, the NAACP Image Awards look “to honor outstanding Black actors, actresses, writers, producers, directors, and recognized those working in Hollywood who supported those artists.” The focus on film is particular poignant since the NAACP formed in 1915 around organizing protests to the exhibition of D. W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation.
