2021 BET Awards: The Complete Winners List

The 2021 BET Awards are here to honor Black excellence across music, television, film and sports! Some of the biggest celebs turned out to celebrate the big occasion.

This year’s awards show will be held in person once again — after having to hold a virtual ceremony last year in light of the pandemic — and will feature a live audience inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, bringing a fun, electric energy to the festivities.

Going into Sunday’s show, Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby lead the pack with seven nominations each, with Cardi B and Drake following with five nods apiece.

Check out the full list of winners below, which ET will be updating throughout the night, with winners marked in bold. Stay tuned for updates, when the show kicks off at  8 p.m. ET on BET.
