mariahcareyprecious Earlier today the NAACP Image Awards nominations were announced and Precious racked up eight nominations.  Lee Daniels , Mariah Carey , Gabourey Sidibe , Lenny Kravitz and Mo'Nique were all honored. Other nominees include Jamie Foxx for Law Abiding Citizen , Zoe Saldana for Avatar and Sandra Bullock for The Blind Side . I'm a lil' surprised Nicole Beharie didn't receive a nod for outstanding actress in American Violet , but Sandra Bullock did. Also, The Blind Side received a nod for outstanding film and American Violet was shunned in that category too.
