BET Awards Nominees: DJ Khaled, Kendrick Lamar, Migos, SZA lead the pack

The 2018 BET Awards will be held on June 24 in Los Angeles.

 

BET just announced the nominees for the upcoming 2018 BET Awards, and we can’t wait to see who will reign supreme this year.

DJ Khaled leads the pack with six nominations, and Kendrick Lamar racked up five nods. Close behind are Migos and SZA with four nominations each. Several of our favorite ladies nabbed nominations, including Rihanna, Cardi B, and Beyonce.

The show won’t only honor music‘s biggest names this year but will also hand over trophies for the best athletes, films, actors, and directors of the year.

We’re pretty sure Black Panther will take home the prize for Best Film, but we’ll have to wait and see if the other contenders; Girl’s Trip, A Wrinkle In Time, Detroit, and Mudbound, have a chance.
