January 9, 2010 by  

Awards season is here in full force, and True Blood is being recognized for several different things. Alexander Woo, one of the show’s very talented writers, has been nominated for an NAACP Image award for writing the Season two finale,”Beyond Here Lies Nothin‘”. His category is Outstanding Writing in a Dramatic Series, which includes nominees from Grey’s Anatomy, House, and Lincoln Heights.

• Alexander Woo – “True Blood” – Beyond Here Lies Nothin (HBO)
• Kathleen McGhee-Anderson – “Lincoln Heights” – Home Again (ABC Family)
• Sara Hess – “House” – The Greater Good (FOX)
• Shonda Rhimes – “Grey’s Anatomy” – What a Difference A Day Makes (ABC)
• Zoanne Clack – “Grey’s Anatomy” – Stand By Me (ABC)

The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) was founded in 1909 to promote equal rights for all, and to eliminate race prejudice. For 41 years, the Image Awards have been “celebrating outstanding achievements and performances by people of color in the arts.” Those who lead the industry in television, music, literature, and film, are all honored on this special night.

Alexander has been a writer and producer on True Blood since Season one. He has penned the episodes “Sparks Fly Out,” “Fourth Man in the Fire,” “Nothing but the Blood,” “Timebomb,” and “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’.” He was nominated along with the rest of the writers for a WGA award in 2009, but this NAACP award is his first solo nomination. We wish him the best of luck! He did a great job writing the finale, and he certainly deserves the honor.

The ceremony will be broadcast live on February 26, 2010, from 8-10pm ET on FOX.
