Marsai Martin was among the NAACP Image Award winners reported on Saturday in front of the live show.
The entertainer got three honors including Outstanding Breakthrough Performance for a Motion Picture for Little and both Outstanding Performance by a Youth (Series, Special, Television Movie or Limited-Series) and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for ABC’s Black-ish.
Martin turned into Hollywood’s most youthful executive producer with her hit film Little, handling a first-look manage Universal.
A year ago, the star disclosed to ESSENCE that she hopes the film inspires other young girls to believe in themselves.
“A lot of people will say different stuff like, ‘You can’t do it.’
They’ll say no before I even say anything. You just have to believe in yourself and there’s a reason they might say no because they probably haven’t seen it before.”The Black-ish actress tweeted on Saturday that she was “grateful and beyond blessed” for the NAACP Image Award wins.
