Kerry Washington was a three-time winner at the 44th annual NAACP Image Awards. She won an outstanding actress in a drama series for “Scandal,” supporting actress in a motion picture for “Django Unchained” and the President’s Award, which is given in recognition of special achievement and exceptional public service.

“This award does not belong to me,” said Kerry Washington, “It belongs to our ancestors. We shot this film on a slave plantation, and they were with us along every step of the way.”

Don Cheadle, Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Omar Eps and LL Cool J were among other award winners.
