BET Awards 2022: Full List of Winners

BET Awards 2022 Winners

The 2022 BET Awards were held on Sunday night, recognizing the best in music, film, TV and sports.

Empire alum Taraji P. Henson (pictured above) presided over this year’s awards, which took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Ahead of the ceremony, rapper/singer Doja Cat had notched the highest number of nominations (with six), followed closely by rapper Drake and R&B singer Ari Lennox, who each earned four nods. (Unfortunately, all three musicians went home empty-handed.)

Longtime rapper and producer Sean “Diddy” Combs was honored with this year’s BET Lifetime Achievement Award, introduced by a speech from surprise guest Kanye West. Other performers at the ceremony included Lizzo, Jack Harlow, Latto, Chlöe and Chance the Rapper.
