Washington D.C. [USA], Feb 23 (ANI): Warner Bros.' legal drama 'Just Mercy' swept the top film awards at the 51st annual NAACP Awards. The star-studded award ceremony took place on Saturday night (local time) in Los Angeles with Lizzo being named Entertainer of the Year.
According to Variety, 'Just Mercy' took home best motion picture, ensemble, best actor (Michael B. Jordan) and supporting actor (Jamie Foxx). The best actress prize for Jordan Peele's home invasion thriller 'Us,' went to Lupita N'yongo.
Meanwhile, Rihanna accepted the prestigious President's Award for her philanthropy work. The pop singer took the stage to say, "We can only fix this world together - we can't do it divided," and received thunderous applause.

Angela Bassett, Billy Porter, Regina King and Tyler Perry were nominated Entertainer of the Year alongside Lizzo.

On Friday night, in a pre-telecast ceremony, some of the other winners were announced. OWN's (Oprah Winfrey Network's ) 'Greenleaf' nabbed the best drama series prize while ABC's 'black-ish' was named best comedy.
