BET Awards


BET Awards

The BET Awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate Black Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past year. The awards are presented annually and broadcast live on BET.

Ceremonies locations

The inaugural ceremonies, in 2001, were held at the Paris resort on the Las Vegas Strip. From 2002 through 2005, the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood hosted the ceremonies. The 2006, 2007, and 2008 award ceremonies were held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

Hosts

Groups

The BET Award for Best Group is given to an R&B, hip hop, or gospel duo or group. As of 2007, Mary Mary has been the only gospel group to be nominated for this award. Mary Mary, OutKast and Destiny's Child have received the most nominations ever for the BET Award for Best Group, having four each.

New Artist

The BET Award for Best New Artist is given to an artist who made their debut the previous or same year of the awards ceremony. A former group member can be nominated for the award if they have made their solo debut. For example, Omarion was a member of the hip hop quartet B2K from 2001 until 2004 and B2K had already been nominated for a BET Award for Best New Artist in 2002. Despite this, Omarion was nominated for the category in 2005 because he made his solo debut in the same year. Controversy arose when Jennifer Hudson won the award in 2007 even though her only solo release at the time was a single of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going"; her first album was scheduled for release in October 2007.

Denzel Washington holds the record for the most wins in this category. This category has honored and nominated five oscar winners (Jamie Foxx, Forest Whitaker, Cuba Gooding Jr., Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman) and four Oscar Nominees (Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, Don Cheadle, Terrence Howard and Samuel L. Jackson).
