Avatar photo



The 2017 BET Awards held a few hours ago on Sunday (June 25) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The show was hosted by Leslie Jones. In her opening monologue, the 49-year-old Saturday Night Live actress joked about how rappers back in the day had names that described who they are, but today’s rappers have names that don’t fit that description.

The BET Awards not only honor music – the show also gives out awards for Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Movie, and awards for athletes.

See the full list of winners at the end of the page!
