    BET again proves how ridiculous they are with the dumbest award show in the music industry. what the hell is the "made you look" award? how do you be the MVP of something that has no players or a league? Hustler of the year? really? thats an award? anyone who takes any award show really serious, not just the dumbass show, is a idiot.

    • Anonymous

      they take trends to seriously, to the point where it's just stupid. all those things were either major trends in culture or at some point were trendy for rappers in their lyrics. that's how dumb those people are

  • Doc Hol

    once again BET dickrides the mainstream n proves they don't know shit about Hip Hop or who is deserving of awards in those catagories I mean you'd think they would of at least got 1 nomination right

  • Josiah Perez

    Anyone who watches these award shows just support them and keep them going. As everyone can see by the noms BET Award show is a joke. If we all stop watching it then we all kill it...

  • JUNEBUG025

    It seems BET is determined to end Hip Hop. MtvU does a better job.The only thing that plays on the channel are re-runs and 106&Park. They don't even highlight up and coming black Artists anymore. They are strictly a who-ever-pays network. Slaves to corporate entities. They don't even have comicview anymore. What purpose does the network serve?!?

  • wow

    Best LYRICIST: Jay-Z Eminem J.Cole Kanye Talib Kweli only got 2 right

  • BWS-Fish

    fucking rofl at nicki minaj being nominated for lyricist of the year, unbelievable. To even have her name written beside Jay Z and Eminem in that category is an insult. Clearly just so they can say they havnt discriminated against women. go and "put your pussy on someone's sideburns" nicki. Its masterful lyrics like those that got u the nomination. smfh...

  • Tristan

  • STFU

    Why am I not surprised about this lineup? Whatever BET. I hope Jay takes them all, more power to him, maybe Drake. But for the rest, nope. Fuck DJ Khaled, fat faggot sounds like he hasn't hit puberty yet. WE THE BEST! Fuck outta here.

  • Brandon

    This network was and still remains a joke. Nothing Hip Hop about this at all, just an awards banquet for industry insiders...

  • Cesar Rodriguez

    how is eminem not in the track of the year? He's not even in the video of the year? Lil Wayne doesn't sell like eminem or spit like him Drake sucks compared to Eminem, i mean i love Jay or kanye but c'mon he's ripping the charts and he's not nominated for track of the year or video of the year, i say BULLSHIT.

  • TheRealest

    3 nom. for Jay-Z in the same category??? BET sold out straight up jeje

  • Anonymous

    weak ass industry bullshit.. these are all pop artist.. wheres the real hip hop

  • vargo05

    Rookie of the Year should be a 3 man race: J Cole Jay Electronica Curren$y The rest of that shit is lame as hell. No noms for the Roots, Distant Relatives, Curren$y, Reflection Eternal. This shouldn't surprise any of us though. They should be called The BET Hip-Pop Awards. Only real hip hop on the list are J Cole, Jay-Z, Busta and Em.

  • kevinxkush

    if J. Cole does not win rookie of the year BET becomes the least credible enitity in hip-hop. oh and Distant Relatives isnt nominated for cd of the year.. BULLSHIT

  • khordkutta

    should read: "NOT on there"

  • khordkutta

    How are The Roots on there for best live!?!? SMMFH

    • dj_noname

      How is Busta Rhymes in this category? yeah he does an awesome live show but what has he released to perform live???

    • Ja

      How are the Roots not nominated for every category? Seriously this is a shitty example of what hip hop is... I mean is that nikki chick seriously in the top five of lyricists this year? geeeshh

  • Moses Esan

    Ha, BET shouln't be allowed to have their own award ceremony, its a fucking joke.

  • freshyboi

    2010 was a sad year if nicki and rick ross are nominated for more than 5 awards each

  • freshyboi
