“Honored to get these nods 🥃 on behalf of everyone who’s worked so hard to make a great show! Thank you NAACP Image Awards for this BALLERS recognition.

Outstanding actor. Outstanding comedy.

These nods are very special given its for our final season of BALLERS.
It’s been an outstanding five year run of being HBO’s highest rated half hour show and I thank you fans so much for rocking with us all these years.

While Johnson has been nominated for this category before in the past, he has yet to win it. However, he was awarded Entertainer of the Year at the event back in 2017. Ballers, a four-time Emmy nominee and HBO’s highest-rated half-hour series, was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2018. Additionally, Johnson’s costars John David Washington (TenetBlacKkKlansman) and Omar Benson Miller (Miracle At St. Anna8 Mile) have been nominated in previous years for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

The 51st annual NAACP Image Awards will air live on Saturday, February 22nd on BET.
