Blair Underwood, the Grammy Award-winning actor, added another NAACP Image Award to his previous 4 awards, the other day.

On March 28, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People honored the actor, best known for starring as ‘Jonathan Rollins’ in NBC’s legendary legal drama series ‘L.A.

The 56-year-old took to his verified Instagram account without delay to celebrate the exciting news; Underwood released an image announcing his glory, and then expressed his satisfaction with the award. Daytime Emmy Award-winning actor wrote the following message in order to celebrate the news:

Absolutely honored and humbled to accept the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Limited Series.”

Then, by referring to his character, ‘Charles Joseph Walker‘ in the miniseries based on ‘On Her Own Ground‘ by A’Lelia Bundles, he concluded his message as follows:

“Even though the character I played had positives and negatives, sometimes it’s important to understand the image of what not to aspire to be, and appreciate the complexities within the human diaspora.”

Underwood was not the only cast member who celebrated the news; Octavia Spencer, who portrayed ‘Madam C. J. Walker‘ in the series also went to her verified Instagram account and thanked the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for the awards.
