Last Night the NAACP Image Awards were announced with gongs for Kerry Washington, Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, and most surprisingly the George Lucas produced World War 2 picture Red Tails. An NAACP spokesperson said: ‘It’s not a great film, but it is a really nice idea. And Cuba Gooding Jr. is in it, and that guy needs all the encouragement he can get.’

The film beat several high profile contenders including Django Unchained, Beasts of the Southern Wild and Flight. In fact the film has been largely forgotten by everyone including Anthony Hemingway, the film’s director, who recently gave an interview during which he failed to recall the story or the names of many of the main characters. Speaking on behalf of the NAACP, Max Plank said: ‘Red Tails tells the story of an important and forgotten period in American history and uses frankly unconvincing CGI. We came to the conclusion if we don’t pretend to like it, who will?’
