The Full List Of BET Award Winners 2016

Los Angeles, CA - Los Angeles was the epicenter of Hip Hop Sunday night (June 25) as the stars of black entertainment assembled for the 2016 BET Awards.

"Black-ish" stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross returned to host the TV event at the Microsoft Theater, with a ceremony that opened with a surprise performance from Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar.

Going into the awards, Drake led the nominations with nine, with Rihanna and Beyoncé tied for second place with five.

Two prizes were pre-announced for the show: a Lifetime Achievement Award that went to actor Samuel L. Jackson for his body of work in film, and a Humanitarian Award that went to "Grey's Anatomy" star Jesse Williams for his contributions to the Black Lives Matter movement.
