Congratulations to Nelsan Ellis! The True Blood star received a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in the NAACP Image Awards.

As the snarkalicious Lafayette Reynolds, Ellis was a standout in Season 4 — he even made Lafayette believable as a woman. Twice!

Nelsan will vie for the award against Omar Epps (House), James Pickens Jr. (Grey's Anatomy), Corey Reynolds (The Closer), and Ice T (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).

To see if Nelsan takes home a trophy, watch the NAACP Image Awards awards on Friday, February 17 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
