2017 BET Awards Full Winners List

Once again, the best of black culture was celebrated Sunday night (June 25) at the 2017 BET Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Hosted by SNL star Lesley Jones, pop superstar Beyonce was one of the big winners of the night. Unfortunately the singer couldn’t be there–reportedly she just gave birth to twins–so her speech was read for her.

Chance the Rapper won the award for Best New Artist and he also accepted the Humanitarian Award. He is now the youngest person to receive the honor in BET history.
