The 48th NAACP Image Awards were handed out on Saturday, with This Is Us‘ Sterling K. Brown, People v. O.J. co-star Courtney B. Vance and OWN’s Queen Sugar among this year’s first-time recipients.

The evening was perhaps most notable, however, for repeat winners. ABC’s black-ish nabbed its third consecutive award for Outstanding Comedy Series, as did stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross in the lead actor categories; Taraji P. Henson reigned victorious with a second straight win for Empire (while also taking a trophy for Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture for her work in Hidden Figures.)

The annual gala celebrates the achievements and performances of people of color in the arts, as well as those who promote social justice through creative endeavors.
