ABC's "Ugly Betty" Wins NAACP Award
And you thought we'd be done with awards shows after The Oscars. The award season is still in full swing and congratulations are in order as the cast of ABC's highly enjoyable comedy "Ugly Betty" won NAACP award at yesterday's ceremony in Los Angeles, while Vanessa Williams who plays the deliciously evil "Mode" creative director Wilhelmina won Best Supporting Actress.
The show is "a story about family, about feeling like an outsider, and as African-Americans in this business know, often we feel like an outsider," said Williams.
America Ferrera, who plays Betty, said the show was successful because American viewers were anxious to see a show that represented the country's diverse communities.
"We knew theme would connect with the American people, who wanted to see fresh faces they can connect with on television," said Ferrera.
Earlier this year "Ugly Betty" won the Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series as well as a number of other awards recognizing what a true and rare gem this wonderful feel-good series has become.
