BET Awards 2020: The Total Winners List

BET Awards 2020: The Total Winners List

The BET Awards were back on Sunday, however things were a little various, to state the least.

As one of the first significant award shows in the age of COVID-19, the event occurred virtually– instead of at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, where it was held in 2015.

” Insecure” starlet and comedian Amanda Seales hosted the event, which celebrates African American accomplishments in music, film and sports. This year marked the award show’s 20 th anniversary, along with the 40 th anniversary of the BET network.

Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion have been nominated for multiple BET Awards in 2020.

Drake was the night’s most-nominated artist with six nods, while Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch were tied with five elections each. Chloe x Halle, Roddy Ricch and DaBaby were simply a few of the stars set to put on remote performances.

Throughout the show, Beyoncé received this year’s Humanitarian Award in acknowledgment of her philanthropic work within the Black neighborhood, including her recent effort to assist combat COVID-19
