HBO, led by its comedy series Insecure, outperformed all programmers in wins at the 27th annual NAMIC Vision Awards, the diversity advocacy group’s annual recognition of on-screen excellence.
HBO won four NAMIC Vision Awards, which honors programming that reflects the lives, spirit and contributions of people of color and mirrors the diverse composition of the viewing audience. The premium service was led by Insecure, which won two awards, including best comedy series and best performance in a comedy series for series star Issa Rae.
Lifetime picked up two awards for its original movie The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel and CNN also won multiple Vision Awards.
NAMIC president and CEO A. Shuanise Washington recently spoke of the importance of recognizing quality, diverse and inclusive content during the NAMIC Vision Awards nominations process. “Now more than ever, this content is essential to fostering greater understanding and acceptance,”
NAMIC will showcase the winning programs on its website, namic.com.
