Halle Berry and Tyler Perry have signed on to host the 40th Annual NAACP Image Awards according to Fox. Slated for Feb.12, the 40th Annual NAACP Image Awards will honor those who promote diversity in the arts. Nominations for the Image Awards will be revealed Jan. 7. Berry, an Academy Award-winner for “Monster’s Ball,” and Perry, whose credits include the film “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” are former Image Award winners. Awards chair Clayola Brown said in a statement Tuesday that the two have broken entertainment-industry barriers and their success offers hope for further progress. The Feb. 12 ceremony, which also airs on Fox, will kick off a yearlong centennial celebration for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
