    they keep nominating Bey with hopes she will show up.

    she pays them dust everytime and accepts her award via satellite, facetime, or skype

    • I Hate blaccc n whyyy y’all not sht October 26, 2019

      She is disrespectful… Whitney Houston would never be so disrespectful to people who love her……f*** Beyonce….

  2. Clarkson October 25, 2019

    Jokers

    Beyonce had one of the worst years of her career and u guys are still showering her with nominations.

    Nominating her for two terrible songs that didnt go anywhere. Brown skin girl and spirit are both flops. The gift sold 900 copies in the UK.

    Only one nomination for normani, in a rubbish category ( best dance performance). she is a dancer not a singer or a songwriter.
    She’s not even a good dancer, she placed 3rd on dancing with the stars. How sad is that.

    • king z October 25, 2019

      @clarkson
      camila dances like she has on a pamper tho. its sad u hate on normani so much.

      • Johny5 October 26, 2019

        A PAMPER!!! I’m done

  3. Clarkson October 25, 2019

    Congrats to all the nominees.

    Side note: am I the only one who thinks Beyonce is a little rude by not attending the black awards show anymore? I’m a bey fan, but it’s a tad alarming and off putting.

    • Clarkson October 25, 2019

      Troll
      This is not me.
      My logo is a circle green head.

    • The More You Know October 25, 2019

      People on this site have been insinuating for YEARS that Beyonce acts like she’s too good for black media. This has been proven a LIE time and time again. Stop. You look OD desperate trying to push an obviously false narrative.

    • Dc October 25, 2019

      Yet she acts like the black people’s savior so fake

  4. Erica October 25, 2019

    They keep kissing & nominated Beyonce ass, sis she’s not coming no matter much she want us to believe she’s woke & all that black power s***!

  5. Dc October 25, 2019

    Wyd must Beyonce overrated ass keep getting nominations that flop spirit nominated ok 😂

  6. Dc October 25, 2019

    Before i let go song of year why do blacks kiss her ass soo much it’s sad

    • BlueIvysAssistant October 25, 2019

      We gonna CONTINUE too kiss her ass beotch! Would it be better if we lick a yt girl’s pu-c? Y’all hate to see it!

      • Dc October 25, 2019

        Yet y’all didn’t support her flop ass lion king project or the singles y’all let her flop but got soo much energy on blogs hmmmmmm

  7. 2bad2bme October 25, 2019

    Ya’ll being mad that the QUEEN gets nominations for her quality body of work at black award show is hilarious to me. Her fans and many REAL artists know the industry is not the same and mediocre talent/ white folks are charting because of lack of taste. She had her run and she does not care whether she wins or not. SHE IS STILL FOREVER THE QUEEN. Just like MJ is FOREVER the KING. PERODT!!!

  8. King Khia October 25, 2019

    Beyawncé can belch and fart all throughout an album and barely promote it and will receive the most nominations by Black award shows which she cares less to attend.

  9. TheGuru October 25, 2019

    Nominating Beyonce every year is kinda desperate! She’s nominated even when she don’t have music out. What makes it worst is that she wins which is why no one comes to your shows. Don’t get me wrong I love Queen Bey but come on showcase the new generation! Blue, Rumi, and Sir probably plays with her awards as toys at this point!

  10. Anne October 25, 2019

    Wish Beyonce was surprisingly show up but I doubt it.

  11. I Hate blaccc n whyyy y’all not sht October 26, 2019

    Brown skin girls are not dark skin….. They are neither light or dark

  12. Davis October 26, 2019

    I think it’s alright but the truth is ya not giving any one a chance ya need to put on this list and respect her name is Lil Kim what are ya waiting on this is one of the reason why Favoritism shows
