Eddie Murphy received the Hall of Fame award during the prime-time telecast of the 52nd annual NAACP Image Awards. The comedian and actor received an Image Award for entertainer of the year in 1990.

According to Billboard, the 59-year-old actor, who received the 'Hall of Fame Award', had bagged his first Emmy (outstanding guest actor in a comedy series) last September for his return to NBC's 'Saturday Night Live.'

Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman won NAACP Image Awards for outstanding actress and actor, respectively, in a motion picture for their Oscar-nominated performances in 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'. But that film lost the award for an outstanding motion picture to 'Bad Boys for Life', the third installment in the Will Smith/Martin Lawrence franchise.

Davis and Boseman each won a second Image Award this year. Davis won for 'outstanding actress in a drama [TV] series' for the second time for ABC's 'How to Get Away With Murder'. Boseman also won the outstanding supporting actor award in a motion picture for 'Da 5 Bloods.'

In the music categories, announced on March 25, Jhene Aiko's Chilombo, a Grammy nominee for album of the year, won an outstanding album. Beyonce was named outstanding female artist for a record-extending sixth time. Drake won outstanding male artist for the first time.

Beyonce won four NAACP Image Awards this year, more than anyone else. Meghan Thee Stallion, Chloe x Halle, Jon Batiste and Marsai Martin of ABC's 'black-ish' each won two (as did Boseman and Davis).

Here's a complete list of the 2021 NAACP Image Awards. This encompasses the awards presented on the prime-time telecast and during five nightly pre-telecast sessions.
