Marley, the highly-acclaimed documentary recapping the life and music of Reggae icon, Bob Marley, has secured another nomination for a major international award.

The documentary, directed by British filmmaker, Kevin Macdonald recently copped a nomination for next year’s National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Image Awards.

Marley is up for the Outstanding Documentary (Theatrical of Television) award, which features contenders such as Black Wings (Smithsonian Channel), Brooklyn Castle (Producers Distribution Agency), First Position (IFC Films) and On The Shoulders of Giants (Showtime).

It’s the second major international accolade that Marley has been nominated for since the start of December. On December 5, the documentary earned a Grammy nomination in the Best Compilation soundtrack for Visual Media category.

All the NAACP Image Award winners will be named during a ceremony to take place on February 1, 2013, during a two hour special on NBC, CBS and ABC.

Marley premiered on April 19 at Emancipation Park in Kingston on April 19 and hit theatres across the United States the following day. The movie not only takes a more personal look into Bob Marley’s life and music, but offers in-depth interviews with former managers, industry peers and family members, including wife, Rita Marley and daughter, Cedella Marley.
