BET Awards 2023: Full List of Winners

The 23rd BET Awards are being given out this Sunday evening, in a ceremony held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and airing live on — you guessed it — BET.

This year’s BET Awards have a lot going on, including a star-studded celebration of 50 years of hip hop (featuring musical medleys curated by DJ and producer Kid Capri); a tribute to the late Tina Turner, led by the legendary Patti LaBelle; the recognition of Busta Rhymes with the Lifetime Achievement Award; and performances by nominees Coco Jones, Ice Spice, GloRilla and Latto, plus Doechii, Lil Uzi Vert and Mad Lion.

Leading the 2023 nominations is Drake, with seven nominations that include ‘Best Male Hip Hop Artist,’ ‘Best Male R&B/Pop Artist,’ ‘Best Group’ with 21 Savage, ‘Best Collaboration’ with Future and Tems (“Wait for U”), ‘Album of the Year,’ for Her Loss with 21 Savage, and ‘Viewer’s Choice Award,’ for Jimmy Cook with 21 Savage, and his feature on Wait for U with Future and Tems. 21 Savage and Lizzo earned the third-highest number of nods, with five nominations each.
