The 47th NAACP Image Award nominees are in. And we’ve got the list. Come inside to peep pics of Tika Sumpter, the “black•ish” kiddies Marsai Martin & Miles Brown and more attend the nominee press conference today. Also, we’ve got candids of Keke Palmer, who’s up for an Image Award, trek through LAX.

At today’s 47th NAACP Image Awards Nomination Press Conference held at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills, a handful of YBF celebs stepped out to announce the 2016 nominees.

The categories and nominees were announced by upcoming Southside With You star Tika Sumpter, “black•ish” kiddies Marsai Martin and Miles Brown, “Born Again Virgin” actress Danielle Nicolet and “Scandal” star Guillermo Díaz. In addition, the event was live streamed and special commentary was provided by “Entertainment Tonight” reporter Nischelle Turner

Tika, who has wrapped up filming Southside For You as a young First Lady Michelle (Robinson) Obama, slipped into a cute black laser cut frock to help announce the nominees. She’s a chick who hardly ever disappoints on the carpet.

The YBF chick star starred in the HBO Bessie biopic that has been nominated for the Outstanding Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special award. Also, her co-stars Queen Latifah, Michael K. Williams and writer Dee Rees have nabbed nominations.

Cuties Marsai and Miles melt our hearts every time we see them. They are so adorable. Both of them nabbed nominations. Marsai is up for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series award and Miles is up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series award. Congrats to them!

Their co-stars Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Marcus Scriber, Laurence Fishburne and creator Kenya Barris all nabbed nominations too.

Speaking of kiddies…

The young lady who voices Doc McStuffins, Laya DeLeon Hayes (above), has been nominated for the Outstanding Children’s Program Award. Woot!

Back on the carpet…

Danielle looked very classy and elegant in a black pencil dress and black peep-toe pumps.

A leather dress can sometimes be a hit or miss, but TV reporter Nischelle Turner made it work.

Tika, Danielle and Huck…we mean Guillermo, who’s up for an award, looked very excited to name the nominees.
