BET Awards 2020 Winners: The Complete List

The ceremony took place virtually instead of at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where it was held last year.

The BET Awards were back on Sunday, but things were a little different, to say the least. 

As one of the first major award shows in the age of COVID-19, the ceremony took place virtually ― instead of at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, where it was held last year. 

Insecure actress and comedian Amanda Seales hosted the ceremony, which celebrates African American achievements in music, film and sports. This year marked the award show’s 20th anniversary, as well as the 40th anniversary of the BET network.

Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion have been nominated for multiple BET Awards in 2020.

Drake was the night’s most-nominated artist with six nods, while Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch were tied with five nominations each. Chloe x Halle, Roddy Ricch and DaBaby were just some of the stars set to put on remote performances.

During the show, Beyoncé received this year’s Humanitarian Award in recognition of her philanthropic work within the Black community, including her recent effort to help combat COVID-19.
