2021 BET Awards: The Complete Winners List

The BET Awards, which took place last year, were one of the first big awards ceremonies to go place since the outbreak. Producers tweaked the program to comply with safety regulations, with actress Amanda Seales hosting the event but no in-person audience.

However, not on a regular stage, several performances had the quality and feel of music videos rather than a typical live performance. Meanwhile, winners such as Beyoncé and Lizzo accepted their trophies via video conference.

This year’s awards event was presented in person for the first time, with a live audience inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, adding to the festivities’ lively, electrifying spirit.

Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby headed the pack with seven nominations each heading into Sunday’s presentation, followed by Cardi B and Drake with five nominations each.

The complete list of winners, which Gisttree will update throughout the night, is below, with winners highlighted in bold.
