“Insecure” won for best comedy series, and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” won for best motion picture. Chadwick Boseman, a posthumous Oscar nominee for his work in “Ma Rainey’s,” won for outstanding supporting actor for his work in Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods.”

Some other notable winners, “Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey” picked up acting prizes for both Phylicia Rashad and Madalen Mills. The films “The Banker” and “Night of the Kings” won for independent feature and international feature, and Stephen Curry picked up a special sports award.
