BET Awards 2019 Winners: The Complete List

BET Awards 2019 Winners: The Complete List

The BET Awards like Cardi B and she likes it like that. 

The Bronx-born rapper is set to be the big winner at the 19th annual award show, which kicked off at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday night, as the stars turned out looks on the red carpet

After Jamie Foxx’s off-the-rails hosting gig last year, national treasure Regina Hall is taking over as the master of ceremonies for the event, which celebrates African-American achievement in music, movies and sports for both longtime legends and up-and-comers. 

Cardi B, who is opening the ceremony with a sure-to-be-buzzworthy performance, is the night’s most decorated nominee with seven nods, including female hip-hop artist and album of the year. Drake, however, trails not too far behind with five nominations across major categories with Travis Scott, J. Cole and Beyoncé also up for top awards.

Meek Mill, Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus, DJ Khaled, Migos, Lizzo, John Legend, Fantasia and more are set to perform at the ceremony, which will also honor icons like Mary J. Blige and Tyler Perry with special awards.

During the show, the late rapper Nipsey Hussle will posthumously receive the Humanitarian Award in recognition of his community activism and philanthropic work in his hometown of Los Angeles.
