NAACP Image Awards honors Denzel, Viola, Kerry, Samuel L. and…”Red Tails”?

The stars of “Flight” and “Django Unchained” were feted at last night’s NAACP Image Awards.

As was the botched but well-intentioned “Red Tails,” the George Lucas-produced account of the exploits of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Samuel L. Jackson and Kerry Washington earned praise for their work in “Django.” A bit of a head scratcher in each account.

Viola Davis won an award for “Won’t Back Down,” a good performance in a movie propped up by a conservative ideologue who wanted to bash teachers unions.

And “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “The Intouchables” took honors in indie and foreign language film categories.
