BET Awards Nominations
BET Awards Nominations

The BET Awards 2022 nominations celebrate performances in cinema, music, television, and sporting events from the previous year across 19 fields. The 22nd annual ceremony, labeled “culture’s biggest night,” strives to “promote the best, brightest, and most gorgeous aspects of the Black experience — honoring the present & future of Black music by uplifting the culture and being a catalyst for social change.”

Taraji P. Henson will host the BET Awards 2022, which will air live from Southern California’s Microsoft Auditorium on June 26 at 8 p.m. EST — a fitting choice given that the actress has won six best actress individual awards at this award ceremony, most recently in 2017 for her achievement in Hidden Figures.

The award show’s speakers and artists have yet to be revealed. Last year’s program featured a tribute performance by Monie Love, Rapsody, Lil’ Kim, and MC Lyte, as well as a hall of fame for Queen Latifah. BET has yet to name a recipient for the prestigious award.


Doja Cat swept the music categories at the annual award event, receiving nominations for best female R&B/pop singer, the album of the year, and best female hip-hop talent for her album “Planet Her.” “Kiss Me More,” her duet with SZA, is nominated for video of the year and outstanding collaboration. Doja Cat’s popular single “Woman” has also been nominated for a BET Her award.

Best male hip-hop artist, best collab as well as video of the year for “Way 2 Sexy,” starring Future and Young Thug, plus an album of the year for “Certified Lover Boy” are among Drake’s nominations.

Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak), Future, Chlöe, Baby Keem, Kanye West, H.E.R., Jazmine Sullivan, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Baby, and Tems each received three nominations, and so did Mary J. Blige, who received three nominations in both the music and TV/film categories. Blige has been nominated for the BET Award for best female R&B/pop singer. Her award for “Good Morning Gorgeous” as well as best actress for “Power Book II: Ghost.”

West’s Donda, H.E.R.’s Back of My Mind, and Doja’s Planet Her were all nominated for record of the year for the 64th Grammy Awards, and they’re all nominated again here. Tyler the Creator’s Call Me If You Get Lost, which won an AMA for the best rap album, while Jazmine Sullivan’s Heaux Tales, which won an AMA for best R&B album, are among the contenders in that category. Drake’s Certified Lover Boy as well as Silk Sonic’s An Evening With Silk Sonic are the only two candidates in that category. (The later album was released just after the eligibility deadline for the Grammys.)

Baby Keem, who was considered for best new artist at the Grammys, is up for it again. Latto, Benny The Butcher, Tems, Muni Long, and Yung Bleu are among the opponents he will face. Doja Cat starring SZA’s “Kiss Me More,” which won a Grammy for best hip hop duo/group track, and Baby Keem and Lamar’s “Family Ties,” which won a Grammy for best rap, are one of the songs contending for best collaboration.

Films/ TV Series

Candyman, Respect, Space Jam: A New Legacy, and The Harder They Fall are fighting for the best movie with King Richard, which got an Oscar nomination for best film. Two occupied actors are nominated for two acts in this category. For his roles in Respect & Godfather of Harlem, Forest Whitaker has been nominated for best actor. For her roles in Euphoria as well as Spider-Man: No Way Home, Zendaya has been nominated for Best Actress.

Will Smith, who had the greatest and one of the worst nights of his lifetime at the Oscars, won the best actor for King Richard but then slapped Chris Rock and shouted obscenities, gets a chance to redeem himself here. He’s up for the best actor, but he’ll be up against Denzel Washington, who’s nominated for Macbeth: A Tragedy. The two actors battled for best actor in a number of award presentations, culminating in the Academy Awards.

Lil Nas X On His Zero BET Nominations

Lil Nas X may have been an “Industry Baby,” but he isn’t a BET Award favorite. The rapper has got no nominations for the second time in a row. According to screenshots and claims, the 23-year-old expressed his displeasure in a series of now-deleted tweets. He wrote,  “Thank you BET awards for another great zero nominations,” he joked, before adding, “black excellence!”

At the 2020 Awards Show, the “Montero” emcee was up for the best new artist. Fans of Lil Nas X came to Twitter to criticize the BET Awards, pointing out that Jack Harlow, who is listed as the best male hip-hop singer, was chosen instead of the “Montero” musician. Lil Nas X’s single “Industry Baby,” which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, also featured Harlow.
