Tyler Perry wins big at NAACP awards
Writer and director Tyler Perry was the big winner at this year's National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's Image Awards.
Perry's film For Colored Girls was named best movie and he also scooped the best director prize for the film.
The 41-year-old's TV series, Tyler Perry's House of Payne, was named best comedy series.
There were also prizes for Halle Berry and Denzel Washington at the awards ceremony, which took place in the US.
Washington won the best actor award for The Book of Eli and Berry was named best actress for Frankie & Alice.
"If it were not for the NAACP, a little girl like me would not have had wind beneath her wings in a small town in Ohio," Berry said.
"I have never been more proud to be a black woman."
