In Case You Missed It: Naturi Naughton Won Her First NAACP Award
Did you guys know Naturi Naughton won her first NAACP Image Award last week? I personally had no idea until I ran across photos earlier today on Wire Image. Naturi won for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role of Tasha St. Patrick on the hit Starz drama Power. Her category was presented the day before the show’s live telecast at an Awards Dinner, which is probably why I missed it.
Actress Anika Noni Rose is set to join the cast of Power when it returns for its third season next spring. Anika will reportedly play the role of LaVerne Thomas, a streetwise beat cop from Ghost and Tommy’s former neighborhood.
Anika’s arc is set to last throughout season three, which recently went into production. Other names reportedly coming on board for season three include Basketball Wives: LA star Drea Michelle, Queen Latifah and Jermaine Dupri.
Where has Sanaa Lathan been hiding these days? The former Cleveland Show actress hasn’t been seen much since her last TV venture, the Starz drama Boss, was canceled last year.
Sanaa had previously been rumored to make an appearance on another Staz show, last year’s break-out Power, but those rumors turned out to be false.
So what has Sanaa been up to lately? Well, a quick glance at her IMDB page shows her name attached to several independent films, including The Perfect Guy which co-stars Michael Ealy as a sexy IT expert who turns out to have a very dark side.
