BET Awards 2022: Complete winners list

The 2022 BET Awards show Sunday was not only a celebration of “Black excellence,” but celebrities — including the night’s host Taraji P. Henson — used the platform to criticize the Roe v. Wade ruling and amplify women’s voices.

Doja Cat entered the show as the leading nominee with six. The chart-topping performer was up for best female R&B-pop artist, best female hip-hop artist, album of the year for her No. 1 hit “Planet Her” and BET Her for “Woman.” Her song “Kiss Me More” with SZA was nominated for video of the year and best collaboration.

However, SZA took home no awards.

Drake and Ari Lennox were the second-most nominated acts, scoring four nods each. Three nominations went to several others including Baby Keem, Silk Sonic, Chloe Bailey, Future, H.E.R., Jazmine Sullivan, Ye (formerly known as Kanye West), Kendrick Lamar, Lil Baby, Mary J. Blige and Tems.
