The NAACP announced it's 2010 Image Award nominees. See the full and category lists here.
Many folks have long grimaced at this aspect of the NAACP's reach and there have been some crazy choices in the past, Lord knows. Moreover, the finances & culture of the event, and influence of the plutocracy, has long been grist for commentators.
In the book biz category I can finally say (1) I'm pleased and (2) I am glad to see personal friends nominated.
