bet BET Awards 2010 Nominations

Earlier today, in a brightly lit room overseeing the busy mid-Manhattan streets, the nominees for the 10th annual BET Awards were announced with the help of this year’s host Queen Latifah, the self-proclaimed ‘champion of Hip-Hop’ Diddy and his entourage of Dirty Money.  Check out who was nominated for what after the jump…

{Words by That Grape Juice’s New York correspondent, James Dinh}

Jay-Z lead the forefront with five nominations including ‘Best Male Hip-Hop Artist’ and ‘Video of the Year’ where his clips with Alicia Keys (“Empire State of Mind”) and Rihanna & Kanye West (“Run This Town”) will go head to head.  Other suspected contenders such as Beyoncé, Trey Songz and Alicia Keys grabbed four nominations.  But its breakout artist Melanie Fiona who may be the evening’s shining star as the newbie snagged four nominations including ‘Best New Artist.’

The channel decided to spice up this year’s category line-up with the addition of two brand new categories: Best Movie and the YoungStars Award.  This year’s ceremony will include performances by Diddy, Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj, Drake and more to come.  And while a few of the nods left us with in the dust including Justin Bieber (‘Best New Artist’), Beyoncé f/ Lady Gaga – “Video Phone” (‘Video of the Year’) and Hype Williams (‘Video Director of the Year’), congrats to this year’s nominees!

The 10th annual BET Awards will air live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 27, at 8 p.m.  To catch up on the latest news and updates about the show, check out the official BET Awards Twitter. http://twitter.com/betawards.

    Unless you can when a Grammy then really you are only a blacks only artist! Hate to be harsh, but the reason the BET AWARDS sucks, is because none of these people have had hits beyond the black community! Once they start to actually have people with raw, real, vocal, musical, performance talent grace the stage, but that may not be til 2015!!!! haha!!!!

    Why is Gay Songz now being nominated for stuff all the time? It’s seems like pity for the fact that it took him 5 years to become SEMI-relevant. He released an album 8 months ago, six singles & only just went gold. As for the Monica shun, it’s typical. Monica sings real music. Not the catchy crappy slutty ass lyrics of songs like Rude Boy or Video Phone.

    BET is NOW owned and operates-under-the-auspices-of Viacom. That’s why the programming has gone-to-s***. And if y’all got-a-chance to see Viacom’s recent earnings report, BET is making money for ‘em. Y’all know what THAT means, right? …More “coonery”, less-programming of-ANY-substance, and the further whoring/pimping-out/dumbing-down-of OUR culture and OUR community: “Less-of, Jeff Johnson,” and-more-of Keisha Cole’s mother and HER antics!

    …That said, I LOVE Keisha Cole, but as y’all done-see for yourselves, even Keisha couldn’t stomach the-BS-any-longer; she-packed-her-s***; moved to Cleveland: ‘making little boobies,’ …good-for-her!!

    In any case, if y’all don’t watch BET, Viacom WILL change. If y’all start-a-boycott, Viacom WILL listen; if y’all start a writing-in campaign, to-voice-y’all-grievance, Viacom WILL-MAKE-NECESSARY-CHANGE(S) …!!!

Its not about being black. Yeah why is Lil Kim nominated when she hasn’t released a album since 2006?? They could of nominated somebody else!!
    Monica being snubbed is like Whitney being snubbed by the Grammy’s. It makes NO sense.

    Its obvious who is going to win. But forget all these people as long as Kelly Rowland gets to perform or something. But hey, forget this MTV Music Awards later in e summer!!!

Can we get out of celebrity’s asses and do something different? Then they got Young Money as a Best NEW artist–does it consist of one person? So how does it get nominated for an ARTIST category?

    CHILD Lemme tell yall how BET tried IT!

    Can we just start off with Beiber?? Why in the hell is he nominated? s*** we should just add Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato to the mix. I didn’t see these fuckers nominating Keke Palmer when she had stuff out. SMH

    Someone needs to tell the idiots at BET that Beyonce and Rihanna are Pop artists NOT R&B artists. They could have easily added a Pop section. Letoya Luckett and Monica should have been in that instead of them two.

    Best Female Hip Hop artist should have been axed. Ester Dean IS NOT A RAPPER. Nicki Minaj has no album neither does Kim. Trina just dropped hers so it can’t be up for nomination and I don’t even know who Rasheeda is.

    Lastly WHY IN THE BLUE HELL IS VIDEO PHONE UP FOR AN AWARD??? The song and video was an EPIC FAIL. Yet they nominated it for best collabo and best video. I’d rather them do Telephone instead. AT least that was a hit!

    All BET does is want some damn attention. They think by adding names like Gaga and Beiber will bring in the shay whities. I don’t know what they were thinking by adding Sweet Dreams to the list. The album came out 2 BET award shows ago. Didn’t she perform s*** off that album at the 2008 BET awards??? LMAO BET is reaching. That’s why their network is s***. Support TV One people!

    While boycotting Ciara, BET manages to nominate Beyonce for every award possible. Smh. They are so far up her ass. Anyway, the show is gonna suck as usual.

    Let’s face it, even Beyonce’s late releases from Sasha Fierce are competitive enough w/ the other R&B artists’ releases to earn nominations. ‘Sweet Dreams’ for example was a top ten Billboard 100 hit. Being nominated is one thing, but I think that her best chance at actually winning this year is for best female R&B artists. I think she’ll lose to her hubby in the other categories. Either way, I’ll be pulling for Bey. I think overall she is the strongest female R&B contender, her crossover success doesn’t change her roots as an R&B artist. Taylor Swift wins awards in Pop, Country, & General categories. We shouldn’t be so quick to push away or aside our artists to punish them for having crossover success. Artists like Beyonce and Rihanna are defying and blurring the lines of strict categorization and are marketable in more than one category, just like Justin Bieber & Justin Timberlake.

    Why are rihtard stans crying? BET isn’t even her audience. She’s NOT an R&B artist. And I don’t even she’s ever won a BET award.

    Okay so like yall know i love beyonce, BUT i rather see monica put in R&B Nomination than her, WTF RIHANNA hard video not up for video of the year, okay lets be real,

    BEYONCE Been Carrying the show for over 6 years, 01,03,04,06,07,09 those where the top rated views of the ghetto show, yes, its going to be the same ole stage, same ole people to present, and same ass ole performances,

    Monica needs to perform
    rihanna
    drake
    nicki minaj
    Trey songz

    nobody this year is either worthy for a f****** award, ITS THE YEAR OF FLOPS not even monica, who i love didnt have that good of an album, just because it was R&B dosent mean it was good, it sounds mostly like a leftover jazmine sullivan Album. but i still love monica, YALL WANT R&B U SUPPORTED IT, dont blame pop for killing it, Yall the people who go out and buy the music, YALL DIDNT let alicia keys flop so why yall let monica do it, SMh to the people complaiing about Music today, music changed remmber the days when R&B was blowing up the charts, Usher, DC3, TLC i mean the list goes on, now its mainly pop dance, dont worry its going to come back.lol

    I have so many opinions about these categories, but I have already expressed them on the BET’s “You Talk We Listen” page. Don’t wanna fill up another blog page. Please copy and paste the link below if you wish to hear my “thoughtful” response. I’m ben194, and I go hard on them, you won’t believe it.

    Don’t hate, that video phone was pure fya and you tricks was requesting that on bet, radio and playing that in your cars. Of course it is being nominated, the video was directed by Hype Williams and was flawless, look at the effects, range of colours and graphics used in the video- you guys are tripping out that is one of the best in studio videos to come out other tricks bringing flat ass videos with green screen and to be honest it was one of the most beautiful and eye catching videos to be released from the I am /Sacha Fierce Album after she done already collected MTV awards for Single Ladies and If I were a boy look at the other videos and tell me that Video Phone is not the third best video off the cd does not deserve extra credit. Hmm I wish Brandy would hurry up and bring the fire the game has been missing, They need to add Monica to the damn show: For international I think Corinne Bailey Rae (UK) got this one or Sade (UK) her swag is insane.

Robin thicke,justin timberlake and eminem have all been nominated before and why am i so completely bored outta my mind with these nominations MOST of these people are pop and gone all commercial some of the nominees are alright but could be better for best male hip hop artist how about eminem or dr dre or kanye????

    You’re an idiot! BET is crap however but the thought that excellent talent is not currently available is nonsense! The fixed, fake, controlled media has caused this foolishness by only promoting certain artists and we the MUSIC LOVERS have sat on our lips not saying a damn thing ! Well damn, so I guess like you we are all IDIOTS WHO ARE GETTING WHAT WE DESERVE FOR NOT SPEAKING UP FOR TRUE TALENT.
