"The Bernie Mac Show" took home key prizes at the 37th Annual NAACP Image Awards held on Saturday, February 25 in Pasadena. The Image Awards pay tribute to positive portrayals of people of color in film, TV, music and literature, and are voted on by a committee of 300 industry professionals and NAACP leaders.

"The Bernie Mac Show" took home three awards--Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series for Bernie Mac, Outstanding Supporting Actress for Camille Winbush and Outstanding Director for TV for Millicent Shelton. "America, I heard your prayers, and you wanted me here," said Mac, one of the Original Kings of Comedy. "The Mac Man cometh and I'm bringing hell with me."

Increasing his winning streak, Terrence Howard doubled his pleasure by winning in both the Movie and Television categories. He won Best Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries for HBO's "Lackawanna Blues" and Best Supporting Actor in a Movie for "Crash." The NAACP Image Awards, hosted by thespian Cuba Gooding Jr., airs next Friday, March 3 on Fox.

Chris Rock, meanwhile, scored in the Best Television Series category for his semi-autobiographical sitcom, "Everybody Hates Chris." In his acceptance speech, the comic cracked, "I want to thank all the white kids who beat [me]. I'm rich!"

Carlos Santana, who received the NAACP Hall of Fame Award, performed, as did New Orleans' Neville brother, who took home the Chairman Award. The ceremony paid tribute to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, as well as two civil rights icons, Rosa Parks and Coretta Scott King, both of whom died recently.

"I think [Coretta] is setting up there with her husband smiling as we continue to chase the dream," said "The Young and the Restless" star Shemar Moore, who along with costar Victoria Rowell won Best and Actor and Actress in a Daytime Drama.
