It was a big night for former All My Children star Michael B. Jordan (Ex-Reggie), as well as the cast of Fox’s Empire, at the 47th annual NAACP Image Awards broadcast on Friday night on TV One.

The motion picture Creed was the big winner of the night in the film category, winning every category it was in!  Jordan received not only Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture for his work in the film, but also the evening’s highest honor of Entertainer of the Year. This year’s ceremonies were notable especially for taking place in the midst of an important debate about diversity, or the lack thereof, in Hollywood after many in the African-American film community felt snubbed at this year’s Academy Award nominations, especially because of critically-acclaimed films such as Straight Outta Compton being dissed.

In the television categories, it was Fox’s sudsy drama Empire that took home the prize for Outstanding Drama Series with its leading stars winning, too! Taraji P. Henson took home the award for her performance as Cookie Lyon in the Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series category.  Her counterpart, Terrence Howard (Lucious Lyon) won the prize in the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series field.

Empire’s Jussie Smollett (Jamal) took home two awards in musical and recording categories.  First, for Outstanding Song along with the Empire cast and Yazz for “You’re So Beautiful”.  And second. for Outstanding Group or Duo Collaboration for his performance fo the song “Conqueror” with Estelle.

The 47th Annual NAACP Awards were handed out at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena California.  For the complete list of winners click here.

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!

And there is more “All in the Consuleos Family” casting.  The couple’s son Michael is portraying the teen-aged version of Hiram on tonight’s all-new episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
