The show must go on!

In a bid to celebrate and uplift, the BET Awards 2020 are set to broadcast virtually on Sunday June 28th.

As always, all eyes are on who’ll be up for nominations at Black entertainment’s biggest calendar night. A ceremony that’s even more notable this year, given that it’s the show’s 20th anniversary and the 40th anniversary of the network.

Well, wonder no more. For, the nominees list has been revealed.

Much like the charts, Drake leads the pack with a whopping six nominations.

Following closely are 2020 chart-toppers Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch – who’ve both nabbed five a piece.

Elsewhere, the likes of Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B are amongst the stars who also scooped notable noms at show – which will air simultaneously across BET, MTV, VH1 and for the first time CBS.

    • King+of+Kingz June 15, 2020

      You’re obsessed with Nicki, always got her c*** in ya mouth under every damn post smh undercover fan ass always hating. She’s literally the most awarded female rapper there so stfu

    • Fancy BISH June 15, 2020

      😂 Chile, if The Weeknd doesn’t WIN Best Male R&B/Pop Artist then we ALL know this thing is RIGGED like the 2016 elections 🤣 In what world do the OTHERS even have a chance in hell? 😂

  2. Radical Bryan June 15, 2020

    I think they should rename this BET Awards show and call it the Beyonce Music Awards show.
    Why?
    Because she is dominating almost the entire music industry.
    My humble opinion.

    • Hated for my opinion June 15, 2020

      Or name the female R&B/Pop Artist category the Beyonce Knowles Carter Award but that’ll be later just wait.

  3. Theman June 15, 2020

    They always give everything to Beyoncé even when it should go to others. They kiss her a** so much.

    • Doja minaje thee stallion June 15, 2020

      It’s an ass that’s worth a thousand kisses

  4. Clarks0o0ñ June 15, 2020

    Damn, even BET awards paid flopmani dust

    Not 1 nominated.
    🤣🤣🤣

    • Only Facts June 15, 2020

      Normani already won a VMA without even having an album out. Not many have that accomplishment 😉☺️

      • Clarks0o0ñ June 15, 2020

        🤣🤣🤣
        Vma was not solo
        6black impact

        🤣🤣🤣
        She won a vma for a song that didnt chart. Lol

      • Only Facts June 15, 2020

        Every award Camila has won was given because of a collaboration. She’s only won awards for senorita and Havana. You’re a loser

      • Clarks0o0ñ June 15, 2020

        Vma- artist of the year, was solo

        2 Grammy nominations-
        Best pop solo performance- Havana (live version without young thug)
        Best pop vocal album (Camila)

        America music award
        Best new artist of the year

        MTV Europe music awards
        Best pop
        Best artist
        Best USA act

        Brit awards
        Best international female

        💅💅
        Gurl Camila’s solo awards are plenty. I cant even list them.

        Normani has never won any solo awards.
        Brit nomination was not solo, sam Smith impact
        Rolling stone magazine cover was not solo
        Vma award was not solo
        She has no solo top 10 hit
        Her 2 top 10 songs, was Khalid and sam Smith impact.

        Now bet awards has paid the rat dust. Lol

  5. King+of+Kingz June 15, 2020

    A lot of tough categories, but why tf is Lizzo’s ass up under bet female rapper tho smh she belongs under best female pop/ R&B not rapper. You don’t see Drake nominated for best R&B/ pop now do ya. They better not give all them awards to Nipsy jus cuz he passed tho. They never nominated his music while he had air in his lungs smh.

  6. G-bby June 15, 2020

    Doja Cat didn’t deserve a nomination but then again, old white men do run BET.

    • Clarks0o0ñ June 15, 2020

      Say so is one of the biggest songs of the year

      Nobody cares about personal scandals.

      • G-bby June 15, 2020

        Who is this “nobody” you peak of, because BET most DEFINITELY cares about personal scandals. Get tf ASAP.

  7. Clarks0o0ñ June 15, 2020

    No nominations for flopmani

    Even a flop award like BET awards isnt checking for her. 💀

    Her
    Saweetie
    Megan thee stallion
    Lil nas x

    None of this people have released a studio album but they are nominated.

  8. Clarks0o0ñ June 15, 2020

    Even blue ivy Carter got a nomination before flopmani.
    😭😭😭😭😭😭

    Black people are not checking for flopmani

    I didn’t know bet awards had standards.
    They font nominate flops. Lol

    The only thing normani has going on for her is the Camila cabello hate train.
    She is ridding that hate train but that train ain’t going nowhere.

  9. Clarks0o0ñ June 15, 2020

    Anyways

    Most streamed songs by lead female artist on Spotify:

    #1. “Dance Monkey” — @tonesandimusic
    #2. “Havana” — @Camila_Cabello
    #3. “Señorita” — @Camila_Cabello
    #4. “Bad Guy” — @billieeilish
    #5. “New Rules” — @DUALIPA
    #6. “7 Rings” — @ArianaGrande
    #7. “Shallow” — @ladygaga .

    💅💅💅💅
    Number 2 and number 3.
    I see why the girls are mad and want to take Camila down.
    Camila’s solo career is just 3 years old.

    • Briana Walton June 15, 2020

      Are you camila because dang. You literally obsessing over her in these comments. I sure hope she is paying you. Btw keep NORMANI’S name out your mouth. She’s more talented, better looking, and better shaped than cantholdanote cabello

  10. tyty June 15, 2020

    Beyoncé just nominated for the sake of it 😂🤦🏽‍♀️ I can’t stand EBT awards.

    • King June 15, 2020

      That’s why I don’t like the BET awards. They nominate Beyonce over and over. Even when she doesn’t have new music. That’s a disservice to more deserving artists.

      • Dc June 15, 2020

        Exactly

  11. Dc June 15, 2020

    Beyonce is so damn overrated they just be making up stuff so she can get nominated sad how people kiss her ass so much and funny thing is you’d think she was going diamond up until recently had no number one for how many years smh overrated ass

  12. Paulo June 15, 2020

    No noms for Savage/Suga? 🤔 when’s the deadline for submissions? This is weird

  13. Lawrence j June 15, 2020

    Why isn’t kmichelle any where on this list like wtf

  14. ERIC June 15, 2020

    June feels really late to recognize work that goes back to the previous summer. But I couldn’t care less when they air it, because the nomination list and winners are always predictable. They need to open it up to more artists and cut back on the typical ones they rely on for ratings – create a balance.

  15. Briana Walton June 15, 2020

    I’m sorry but why is Beyonce nominated for anything. All these award shows are rigged. She gets nominated for and win awards and she doesn’t even have any new music out. Hopefully the award goes to summer walker and meg can get a few wins as well. I’m so sick of the same people winning and being nominated every year.

    • G-bby June 15, 2020

      Y’all act like Bey didn’t release an entire Netflix special and soundtrack last year.

  16. Ari June 15, 2020

    They be straight playing fantasia

    • OOPS June 16, 2020

      Her album flopped, but she would be a better nominee than one in particular

  17. OOPS June 16, 2020

    I would take 1 People’s Choice Award over 20 EBT Awards… this is the worst
