BET Awards 2020 Winners: Beyonce and More – Full List of Nominations

The first-ever virtual BET Awards took place on Sunday, with former Real co-host Amanda Seales presiding over the star-studded show.

Drake entered Sunday’s ceremony with six nominations, including Video of the Year (by Chris Brown) and Best Male Hip-Hop Artist. But Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch weren’t far behind with five nods apiece.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé was a winner before the ceremony even began. Also nominated for four other awards, Beyoncé is the previously announced recipient of this year’s Humanitarian Award, an honor previously awarded to names such as Nipsey Hussle (2019), Chance the Rapper (2017) and Jesse Williams (2016).

This year’s show, which also aired on CBS and BET Her, featured powerful performances from some of music’s biggest acts, including Alicia Keys, Chloe x Halle, DaBaby, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Lil Wayne, Nas, Questlove and Usher.
