    Hood rat award.
    The trash jumped out.
    They are still nominating nicki minaj and beyonce? Two washed up starlets

    • King of Kingz May 17, 2019

      You mean *two legendary black queens

    • Caleb May 17, 2019

      Beyoncé will never be washed. Don’t put her in a category with that other chick.

  2. FMcL May 17, 2019

    What have Benny Boom or Hype Williams directed this past year that was award worthy? Jora Frantzis should have made that list!

  3. Brent Christopher May 17, 2019

    I wish BET would STOP nominating Beyonce for sh|t … simply to be adding her name to the list, undeservedly.

    • King of Kingz May 17, 2019

      You forget beyonce had a #1 song last year with the Perfect duet song plus Coachella/Homecomming is prime example why she will continue to be nomminated

    • biancacook May 17, 2019

      i have to agree. award shows use her name for ratings cuz we all know she as a solo act has nothing to be nominated for.

    • Blaze May 17, 2019

      Beyonce is boring. Same s****

  4. TGJ May 17, 2019

    Lmaoooo TGJ is so desperate to show that Ciara is not a flop…here I’m thinking she got best female or multiple noms…smfh pity TGJ, congrats Ciara, I know it’s been awhile for any kind of nomination for you

    • Faf May 17, 2019

      100M
      23 m records
      100 m Spotify streams this week alone

      I know u hurt 😂😂😂😭😭

      She wrote every song on the album and owns the masters

      She’s not an illiterate b**** like ur fave

      • TGJ May 17, 2019

        Congrats to her on those numbers! …too bad the topic isn’t sales (in her case thank god). I’m talking nominations which this specific one is the first in awhile for artist, which is telling of her as an artist. TGJ thinks to think differently tho, bringing up as often as they can that she has a Grammy but somehow never mentions for what exactly???

        But like i said congrats to her

  5. What A Joke May 17, 2019

    Hey BET when did the Carters become a group? Im A Beyonce fan but come on what did she put out apeshit and she gets a nod for best female so unfair to the others, get TLC to perform Xscape. Janet Chris Brown make it entertaining this year!!

    • Danny Bey May 17, 2019

      The Carters is a group

  6. King of Kingz May 17, 2019

    Interesting how every award show has snubbed Fefe like it wasn’t a hit record with over 300 million views & 5x platinum smh. Pynk by Janelle Monae deserves a video of the year nod as well. It’s evident they’re tryna appeal to the younger crowd to bring in viewers. They knew if they nomminated Nicki for viewers choice the Barbs would bring that s*** home for her after she dropped out their lil weak ass concert series they chose to snub her after she’s been one of few A list stars to always show up for them smh

    • What A Joke May 17, 2019

      Yeah FeFe was huge!! Yeah that is some B.S..Queen was a great album,way better than The Carters Everything is Love which is nominated for best album,Beyonce and J should only just be nominated in best collab if anything along with FeFe, I feel like Apeshit was like last year also but It makes me once again not want to tune in at all ,Get with it BET!! And Barbie Dreamz was good too….

      • iamdiego May 17, 2019

        fefe was last yr too right?

  7. SMH May 17, 2019

    Trash.

  8. iamdiego May 17, 2019

    Where tf is Normani’s name? She had a great year. EBT stay fukin up.

  9. Tyty May 17, 2019

    Beyonce only has one solo nomination so again why are people in these comments mad? Y’all be acting really stupid when it comes to her. The other 3 are as part of a duo yet nobody mentioned or criticized jay. Don’t y’all get bored of HATING?

  10. Steve May 17, 2019

    BET. Beyonce Entertainment Award. Even in her grave she will be handed awards😂

    • Danny Bey May 17, 2019

      And everyone will remain pressed. Legend sh*t

    • I hate blacc and whyyte bitchezz . May 18, 2019

      Not really…a thief….who can’t sing anything like Whitney Houston….Will be the most awarded in artist in history…they have a problem they need to fix.

  11. Xoxo May 17, 2019

    I don’t care

  12. Romeo May 17, 2019

    The best new artist category pretty much shows the demise of black music is real

  13. #TeamTinashe Stan (She’s COMING!!!) May 17, 2019

    THey’ll only give Nipsey the award because he died.

    Im not against it but it does make award shows seem unethical.

  14. Bettie Clayton May 17, 2019

    BET IS WHUT BOTZZXES KLOWNS. FU BET. KULTUTE VULTURED B SHOW.

  15. I hate blacc and whyyte bitchezz . May 18, 2019
