Patrik-Ian Polk Jumps to an Image Award Nom

January 28, 2009
Gay auteur Patrik-Ian Polk just nabbed an NAACP Image Award nomination for his direction of Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom. He's in good company: Spike Lee, Tyler Perry, Gina Prince-Bythewood and Darnell Martin are also nominated, but Polk is the only one with an LGBT film. The 40th NAACP Image Awards, hosted by Halle Berry and Tyler Perry, airs live on Fox Feb. 12. Good luck, Patrik!
