Black-ish's Marsai Martin Didn't Expect To Win An NAACP Award This Weekend

Marsai Martin shows off her award during the non-televised dinner for the 2018 NAACP Image Awards over the weekend in Pasadena, Calif.

The black-ish star was up for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy, and beat out Uzo Aduba, Tichina Arnold, Leslie Jones and Yvonne Orji for the honor.

“I had no idea I was gonna win this award. This one was a complete surprise and I was so discombobulated that I forgot to thank my blackish family,” Marsai wrote on Instagram after the event.

She added a thanks to the organization, who nominated her in that category despite her age: “Thank you for recognizing our show and for ‘seeing’ me…even though I’m a kid, you recognize me as an artist, an actress and that means everything. Thank you.”

Marsai was also nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Youth, but that honor went to Stranger ThingsCaleb McLaughlin.

Free Rein‘s Jaylen Barron and Project Mc2 stars Mika Abdalla, Genneya Walton, Ysa Penarejo, and Victoria Vida were also at the event.
