Tyler Perry Accuses NAACP Image Awards of Snubbing the Stars of His Shows – (EUR Exclusive/WATCH)

*Tyler Perry recognizes that some of you may have a problem with his work. EURweb’s Jill Munroe sat down with the mogul to discuss his new Netflix film, A Fall From Grace” that stars Crystal Fox, Bresha Webb and Phylicia Rashad.

Perry believes that no matter what you think of him, performers like Fox and stars of his OWN network TV series “The Haves and Haves Nots, Tika Sumpter and Angela Robinson have been snubbed by the NAACP Image awards for years.

“When I got this nomination for the NAACP Image Awards, I was like that’s great guys, but I would much rather not have that, cause I think Lizzo should win as “Entertainer of the Year,” But I would really rather see is for this woman (Fox) be nominated; that Tika Sumpter is nominated for ‘The Haves’; that Angela Robinson is nominated, or even considered. Because for the first three years of the show, I stopped submitting them because they were never even considered. The number 1 show among African-American people and they were never even considered, I don’t care what you think of me, but these performances are insane. So they should be recognized is what I feel.”

In A Fall From Grace,” Fox portrays lead character Grace Waters, a woman charged with murdering her younger husband.  Perry describes the story as a juxtaposition of two women at very different stages in their lives, with Bresha Webb taking on the role of a skeptical young lawyer in the public defender’s office, assigned to plead out a straight forward cold-blooded murder.

On Fox’s performance in the film, Perry wasn’t shy about the comparisons he laid out.

This is what I wanted to tell everyone at EUR, this woman has not had her break, and this is it. Billboard in Times Square, this is it. Crystal Foxx is amazing, I will put her next to Viola Davis, Denzel WashingtonMeryl Streep, I put her in those scenes so they could see how great she is.”

Tyler Perry’s “A Fall From Grace” will be available on Netflix starting January 17.
