Who’s Nominated & Who Do We Want To Win?


Oh what fun! The 2014 BET Awards are set to take place this Sunday, June 29 at 8 p.m. ET in L.A. and #TeamBeautiful will be on the red carpet to bring you exclusives from the celebrities you love!

With performances by everyone from Nicki Minaj to Usher, we’re literally counting down the hours until the annual event. If names like Trey Songz or Drake don’t get you excited, it is rumored that Chris Brown will also take to the stage! *Fans self*

Bring On The Laughs! Chris Rock To Host 2014 BET Awards

Chris Rock is set to host the annual ceremony with appearances by the hilarious Kevin Hart and possibly Tracy Morgan (who was allegedly set to make an appearance, but he was involved in a critical car accident). There will be laughter, memorable dance moves, quirky fashion and tears…OK, maybe not tears. Whatever happens this year, we’re ready for it.

To help you prepare, we’ve put together this all-encompassing guide to the show.

Check out the nominees:

Best Female R&B/Pop Artist


Janelle Monáe

Jhené Aiko

K. Michelle


Tamar Braxton

We’re going to go with Beyonce on this one. She had an amazing year with the release of her album “Beyonce” (that broke the Internet), the super successful “Mrs. Carter World Tour” and the forthcoming “On The Run” tour with hubby Jay Z.

Best Male R&B/Pop Artist

August Alsina

Chris Brown

John Legend

Justin Timberlake

Pharrell Williams

As much as we want to be noble and say Pharrell (because he’s having one hell of a year), we’re rolling with Chris Breezy. His song “Loyal” is this summer’s anthem and don’t you just love a redemption story?

Best Female Hip Hop Artist

Angel Haze

Charli Baltimore


Iggy Azalea

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj. That is all!

Video of the Year

Beyoncé – Partition

Beyoncé f/ JAY Z – Drunk In Love

Chris Brown – Fine China

Drake – Worst Behavior

Pharrell Williams – Happy

Come on…Beyonce…”Partition?” There is no competition!

Best New Artist

Ariana Grande

August Alsina

Mack Wilds

Rich Homie Quan

ScHoolboy Q

Our boy Mack Wilds has this one in the bag!

Best Actress

Angela Bassett

Gabrielle Union

Kerry Washington

Lupita Nyong’o

Oprah Winfrey

Lupita is a shoo-in for this one…

Best Actor

Chiwetel Ejiofor

Forest Whitaker

Idris Elba

Kevin Hart

Michael B. Jordan

*Clutches pearls* Michael B Jordan did his thing in “Fruitvale Station” and deserves to take home this award after being snubbed at the Oscars.

Best Movie

12 Years a Slave

The Best Man Holiday

Fruitvale Station

Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain

Lee Daniels’ The Butler

Despite the mainstream success of films like “12 Years A Slave” and “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” we’ve never seen a film quite like “Fruitvale Station” and would like to see it take home the gold.
