It pays to be a member of the young and the restless… At least for Tatyana Ali.
The 35-year-old half- Afro-Panamanian actress and R&B singer took home the Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama trophy at the 45th NAACP Image Awards, which were held Saturday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. Ali’s win was announced at a pre-show ceremony on Friday.
It’s the fourth consecutive win in the daytime television actress category for Ali, who has portrayed Roxanne on a recurring basis on The Young and the Restless since 2007.
Ali ranks second behind The Young and the Restless alum Victoria Rowell for the total number of wins in the category. Powell, who portrayed Drucilla Winters on the CBS daytime drama from 1990-2007, has won 11 trophies for her previous work on the soap opera.
The NAACP Image Awards were broadcast live on TV One and hosted by Anthony Anderson.
