Justin Timberlake nominated in the 2011 NAACP awards

Following recent interviews that have seen Justin Timberlake admit that his love for acting is overpowering his passion for music, the 'Sexyback' star has been nominated for an award by the NAACP.

The NAACP is an organisation that hosts an annual Image Awards Ceremony that celebrates "accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film" and last night (January 12) it nominated Timberlake for the best supporting actor title for his role as Sean Parker in 'The Social Network'. 

The ceremony also honours "individuals or groups who promote social justice through their creative endeavors".
