Trevor Noah’s winning streak continued this week after he was nominated for the NAACP Image Awards once again. 

If there is one person who does not get tired of overachieving, it has got to be Trevor Noah. The stand-up comic, and host of The Daily Show is getting used to making all the right headlines and he found himself in the news again this week after he received a nod for the upcoming NAACP Image Awards in the USA. This comes just weeks before he is set to host the Grammy Awards, becoming the first South African to do so. 

Will Trevor win big once again at the NAACP Image Awards? 

The 2021 NAACP Image Awards will be taking place at the end of March this year but the big news this week came when the nominees were announced on Tuesday afternoon. The announcement was made on Instagram and the likes of Chadwick Boseman (RIP), Issa Rae, Beyonce and Viola Davis were all among the nominees. Africa was well represented too, as Yvonne Orji and Dayo Okeniyi from Nigeria bagged nods, while South Africa’s Trevor Noah was also nominated.

Trevor is nominated for “Entertainer of the Year” and although he faces some stiff competition (he will be competing with Regina King, Tyler Perry and other heavyweights), he might rate his chances quite highly. 

The host of this year’s Grammys has won two NAACP awards in his own name (a third award went to one of The Daily Show’s Writers) in the past and he will be looking to update his trophy cabinet with another award this year. Check out all of the nominees below: 

Trevor Noah’s list of impressive awards 

Along with a strong showing at recent NAACP ceremonies, Trevor Noah has also won a number of impressive awards during the time that he has worked as the host of The Daily Show. He has won a number of MTV Move and TV Awards, a Primetime Emmy, a Shorty Award and even a massive MTV Africa Music Award back in 2015.

As if his stock wasn’t already high enough, Trevor has also been named on the highly coveted Time 100 list (in 2018) and in 2020, he was named as one of GQ Magazine’s Men of the Year.
