TREVOR NOAH – ‘ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR’
The image awards are an annual event that celebrates and rewards talented individuals who have contributed to media and entertainment in meaningful ways.
Noah has also been nominated for this year’s ‘Entertainer of the Year’ along with industry heavyweights like Viola Davis, Tyler Perry, Regina King, and D-Nice.
“I am surrounded by such an incredible team. Thank you, @naacpimageaward, for shining a light on them! Big congrats to @TheDailyShow on two award wins!” Trevor wrote on Instagram.
In addition to this, his show The Daily Show also won ‘Outstanding Short Form Series – Reality/Non-Fiction.’
Noah has previously won NAACP awards for his autobiography, Born a Crime. The book won for ‘Literary Work – Biography/Auto-Biography’ as well for ‘Literary Work – Debut Author’.
Noah picked up the Image award in the ‘Outstanding Host in a Talk or News/Information (Series or Special) – Individual or Ensemble’ category.
Trevor Noah had made a name for himself in America since he was somewhat surprisingly handed the Daily Show’s reigns when Jon Stewart decided to call it a day back in 2015 after hosting the show for 16 years.
The Daily Show is something of an institution in American late-night television that has been on-air since 1996.
