Willow, Jaden Smith Score NAACP Image Awards Nominations

Posted on

Will Smith and Jada Pinckett Smith are proud parents this morning.

Their two precocious children – Jaden, 12, and Willow, 10 – both earned NAACP Image Awards nominations on Wednesday. Jaden is up for outstanding actor in a motion picture for The Karate Kid, while Willow will compete for best new artist as well as outstanding music video for “Whip My Hair.”

Tyler Perry was recognized in a big way, with his film and TV productions earning a total of 19 nominations. Two of his features, For Colored Girls and Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too?, are up for best film.

Other notable nominees include Rihanna, Kanye West, Sofia Vergara, Nicki Minaj and Justin Timberlake – the latter not for his music but for his supporting actor’s gig in The Social Network.

The 42nd NAACP Image Awards ceremony will be broadcast March 4 live on Fox at 8/7C.
