The big winner of the night was Kevin Hart, who took home the award for Entertainer of the Year, as well as Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on Real Husbands of Hollywood.

Before her film won Outstanding Motion Picture, Lupita Nyong’o added another piece of hardware to her already impressive collection taking home a trophy for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, while Kerry Washington snagged up her second Image Award with a win for Best Actress in a Dramatic Series. Kerry’s show “Scandal” also won Outstanding Drama Series.

Oprah Winfrey paid tribute to the late Nelson Mandela with a touching speech and musical dedication.
