BET Awards 2021: Complete list of winners, nominees and laureates | News

The 21st edition of the BET Awards returned on Sunday June 27 with a theme focused on “the year of the black woman”. Award-winning actress and producer Taraji P. Henson hosted the ceremony from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where a live audience watched the nearly four-hour show.

“Celebrating black women isn’t a fad or a trend, it’s an everlasting mood,” Henson said, opening the show. “There is more than enough room for all of us to prosper, for no one can be like me and no one can be you like you.”

Critically acclaimed rapper, actress and producer Queen Latifah received this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award for her “incredible success” throughout her decades-long career. His “rap sisters” including Lil Kim, Rapsody, MC Lyte and love of money all took to the main stage to honor the artist with a performance of his classic hits, “Ladies First” and “UNITY”. Latifah, who became emotional during her speech, thanked her parents, siblings and business partner.

The evening was filled with other winners including Megan you stallion which was recognized as “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist”, “Best Collaboration”, “Viewer’s Choice” and “Video of the Year”.

Congratulations to all the artists whose creativity could not be ignored. Here is the full list of winners below:
