20TH ANNUAL BET AWARDS NOMINATIONS 2020

As they say in the entertainment industry, “the show must go on.” 2020 has been a year that has tried ALL of our patience, with a virus taking people and businesses out, and people finally standing up against systemic racism and social injustice.

While we still have to social distance, foregoing all live in-person entertainment for the time being, BET has just announced the list of nominees for the 20th Annual BET Awards.

Drake has nabbed a whopping six nominations, Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch with five, as well as some potential wins for Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Lizzo, Alicia Keys and Cardi B. Even Billy Porter has been nominated in the Best Actor category for his role as Pray Tell on Pose.

“BET announced the first group of performers for the 20th annual “BET AWARDS” including Alicia Keys, Chloe X Halle, DaBaby, D Smoke, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend,  Jonathan McReynolds, Kane Brown, Lil Wayne, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, SiR, Summer Walker, Usher, Wayne Brady and more.  BET Amplified Artists, Masego and Lonr. are set to take the  BET Amplified Music Stage, a platform for emerging artists.

In the final countdown to the BET Awards, Terrence J and Erica Ash will host the first interactive pre-show featuring celebrities, nominees, and special guests who will be participating in Black Entertainment’s biggest night.”

The BET Awards, which comedian and actress Amanda Seales is hosting is set to air Sunday, June 28 (8:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT, 7:00-10:00 PM, CT) simultaneously on the following networks: BET, BET HER, MTV, VH1 and for the first time CBS.
