The nominations are in! For a 3rd year in a row Amber Riley has been nominated for an NAACP Image Award in the category of TV Actress in a Comedy for her role as Mercedes Jones on the Foc hit TV show Glee. I am sad to say Amber did not win in her previous rounds, but this year, without a doubt, Amber should rightfully claim the title. Check out my reasons after the break.
Award season 2012 may be over but the fashion reviews are still pouring in! Essence Magazine has released their Hot Hair: Best of 2012 Award Season Hairstyles and Amber is listed twice! For more pictures from both events, check out the 2012 Events Photo Gallery.
Best Curls #8 “Full, lush tendrils were totally hot on Amber Riley who sported ebony-hued spirals at the NAACP Image Awards”
