“Empire” and “black-ish” topped the television category, both winning three awards.

 “Straight Outta Compton” was honored with the award for outstanding motion picture.


“We need to do away with the myth that black film doesn’t have a foreign market, because it does,” “Scandal’s” Joe Morton told Variety before the show, held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

“There needs to be somebody who’s either black or brown who’s in a position to greenlight major motion pictures, to tell those stories on that level.

  I know that Miss Boone wants to make the [Academy’s] membership more diverse, which will be a big help,” he said.

  Morton nabbed the NAACP Image Award for outstanding actor in a drama series, which was presented in a non-televised awards ceremony Thursday night.
