Damson Idris brought his mother to the NAACP Image Awards, which was one of the most heartwarming moments of awards season — and here’s why.

The 32-year-old actor was the star of the late John Singleton’s FX crime drama Snowfall as Franklin Saint.

After six seasons, the show finally ended in 2023 and earned Damson his first nomination for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, which he won.

Damson was joined by his mother, Philippa Idris, and from the moment they arrived on the carpet to his acceptance speech — the sweet mama’s boy energy was a delightful sight to behold.

Accepting his award, Damson shared how much the recognition meant to him and his mother, who traveled halfway across the world to be with him.

He thanked the NAACP for “blessing him” and his Snowfall family before acknowledging all of his “heroes” who won the award before him.

“Hopefully, Denzel knows who I am now,” he said, referencing a 2022 red carpet interview where Denzel admitted he had not heard of Damson despite the actor’s comparisons to him.
