2020 BET Awards: Complete Winners List

July 1, 2020

 

The first-ever virtual BET Awards were held Sunday, with former Real co-host Amanda Seales presiding over the star-studded broadcast.

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

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 bestowed upon names like Nipsey Hussle (2019), Chance the Rapper (2017) and Jesse Williams (2016).

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