Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Treme Lead 2012 NAACP Image Award Nominations

Thanks in large part to its Shonda Rhimes-helmed dramas, ABC leads this year’s NAACP Image Awards nominations.

The Alphabet Net scored 20 nods, including two in the Outstanding Drama Series category for Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy. Scandal leading lady Kerry Washington and Grey’s Chandra Wilson and Sandra Oh also received lead actress nominations, while Loretta Devine was recognized for her supporting role. Both Rhimes series also nabbed writing nominations.

• The Finder‘s Michael Clarke Duncan, who passed away in September, is among the nominees for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series.
