Full List Of Winners At The 2021 BET Awards

The 21st annual BET awards took place yesterday night with this year’s theme “Year of the Black Woman.”

This year’s BET award which aired live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles honor’s Black excellence across music, television, film and sports.

Award-winning actress; Taraji P. Henson hosted the ceremony where a live audience attended for the first time since the pandemic began.

Henson while opening up the show said, “Celebrating Black women isn’t a fad or a trend it’s a forever mood. There is more than enough room for all of us to thrive, because can’t nobody be like me and can’t nobody be you like you.”

The highlight of the show was when esteemed rapper and actress; Queen Latifah received this year’s BET 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award for her “amazing success” throughout her decades-long career. Rappers Lil Kim, Rapsody, MC Lyte and Monie Love honored the entertainer with a performance of her songs “Ladies First” and “U.N.I.T.Y..” Queen Latifah then gave a speech, expressing her gratitude.

“I want to thank BET for creating an outlet for beautiful Blackness to thrive, to shine,” Queen Latifah said while accepting her award. “When we couldn’t get played on the radio in other places, we couldn’t get our videos played in other places, there was BET that allowed us to be in our fullness.”
