I am sure you are well aware of what BET Awards are. If you are not, then let me tell you a bit about these Awards. BET Awards were established in 2001 to celebrate Africans Americans in acting, music, and other fields of entertainment. Just like every other year, the Awards were held this year as well, celebrating the contributions of African Americans to the entertainment industry. Many talented people were nominated for several categories as well but let’s see who took the trophy home.
The winners of the BET Awards
One of the many categories of the BET Awards was Album of the Year, many Black artists were nominated for this category but Jazmine Sullivan took the award home. Her album Heaux Tales was declared the best album of the year.
Next up was Best Female R and B/Pop Artist. We all know that there are many black pop artists in the industry like SZA and Beyonce but guess who took the trophy home? Our very own H.E.R. There was a similar category for men as well which was Best Male R and B/Pop Artist and Chris Brown was announced the best black pop artist of the year.
The next category was Best Female Hip-hop Artist. Honestly, we don’t even know how they chose one female artist out of so many because all of them were the best in our eyes. Anyway, they had to choose one so, Megan Thee Stallion, the famous rapper, was announced the Best Female Hip-hop Artist at the 2021 BET Awards. And the Best Male Hip-hop Artist was LilBaby.
The next award category was Best New Artist which went to Giveon. The Best Collaboration Award went to Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion for their song WAP. Another award was Best Group which was given to Silk Sonic. The next award category was Dr. Bobby Jones’ Best Gospel/Inspirational Award which went to Kirk Franklin.

Moreover, the list of BET Awards does not end here. We have many more awards winners left. The next category was Best HER Award which was given to SZA for her album Good Days. Another Category was Viewer’s Choice Award and Megan Thee Stallion featuring Beyoncé won this award for their song Savage (Remix).
The next category was Video of the Year. Once again, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion took that award away. They won it for their music video of WAP. Another category was Video Director of the Year, which Bruno Mars & Florent Déchard won. Next up was Best International Act which was won by Burna Boy (Nigeria).
