The NAACP Image awards annually celebrate the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature, and film, and this year, productions from Fox Searchlight, 20th Century Fox, Blue Sky Studios, FX, and FOX Broadcasting all received nominations.

"The NAACP Image Awards is more than just a ceremony, but an institution for artists and social justice pioneers of color," said Cornell William Brooks, President and CEO, NAACP. "As the Image Awards continues to grow and evolve, the principles of social justice remain at its core".

In the film categories, the Fox Searchlight feature Belle received 5 nominations, including Outstanding Motion Picture. Jamie Foxx and Zoe Saldana received acting nominations for Rio 2 and The Book of Life, respectively.
