Full list of nominees revealed for the 2016 #BETAwards #BETAwards16 [VIDEO]

2016 BET AwardsBy Tony Lesesne
Hip Hop Vibe Staff Writer

Summertime is fast approaching and the number one event in urban entertainment is almost here. The 2016 BET Awards take place at the end of June and everyone is hyped for it. This year, BET has joined forces with Nissan to bring the show together.

Ever since the BET Awards were established, in 2000, they have become a mainstay within the culture. Urban excellence in music, movies, sports, and television is on full display. Last year saw “Empire” take over, as Jussie Smollett and Yazz performed.

Last year, Terrence Howard took home a much-deserved award for his portrayal as Lucious on the show. But, this year, a lot has changed and there is quite a bit of competition for all. The full list of nominees were announced earlier this afternoon and the audience can check it out below:
