Beyoncé may have made headlines earlier this year for becoming the most awarded singer in GRAMMY and NAACP Image Awards history (as we reported here), but – thanks to the 2021 BET Awards – the diva will have to make even more room in her trophy case.
With 31 career wins to her credit, Beyonce – before the 2021 edition of the BET Awards – was already the ceremony’s most decorated act. Nominated for two additional trophies Sunday (June 27), the songstress lost out to H.E.R. in the Best Female R&B/Pop category but was victorious in nabbing the Coca Cola Viewer’s Choice Award for the Hot 100 chart-topping hit, ‘Savage’ (led by Megan Thee Stallion who also accepted the honor as seen above).
The new award extends Bey’s BET Award collection to 32 trophies.
Among men, Chris Brown – already with ceremony’s most decorated male act with 17 previous triumphs to his credit – entered the 2021 BET Awards with 4 chances to win as he was nominated in the Viewer’s Choice, Video of the Year, Best Group, and Male R&B/Pop Artist categories.
By the night’s end, he only collected the latter trophy – beating out the likes of 6LACK, Anderson. Paak, Giveon, Tank, and The Weeknd to do so. The victory runs the ‘Run It’ singer’s career BET Awards win total to 18, extending his reign as the show’s most decorated male.
