The nominations for the BET Awards were announced today (May 16, 2018) with winners to be announced on June 24th at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
This year, the most nominated recipients are DJ Khaled and Kendrick Lamar with six and five categories, respectively, including video of the year, best collaboration, and album of the year.
Migos is nominated for four categories including video of the year for “Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake. SZA is also nominated for four categories, and one has to guess she’ll take at least one home after being shut out at the Grammy Awards.
The female rap category is dominated by New Yorkers with Cardi B, Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj battling for top dog status with Dej Loaf and Rhapsody.
