A List of Nominees at the 2019 BET Awards

Cardi B leads the list of nominations for the 2019 BET Awards, which were announced on Friday (May 17).


In a statement touting the awards show's nearly two-decade legacy, BET Head of Programming Connie Orlando congratulated this year's honorees.


"From Michael Jackson and James Brown busting dance moves together to Monique paying homage to Beyoncé in an unforgettable dance number to BET reuniting the Fugees, we have set the tone for what cool looks like," Orlando said Friday. "This year we are even more so committed to continuing to create the unforgettable moments that have made the BET Awards the preeminent celebration of black culture."


Drake follows with five nominations including Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, Video of the Year for “Nice for What” and Best Collaboration for his appearance on Travis Scott’s infectious banger “Sicko Mode.” Elsewhere, Nipsey Hussle garnered a posthumous nomination for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist.
