Personally I think Kanye deserved the male artist, While Lebron and Paul should have gotten the Athlete one, Will should have been at least nominated for best actor, I dont like the nominations for best videos of the year, I didnt hear about Missy this year and she is all of the sudden the best female singer and UGK wins against Gnarls Barkley on the best group of the year on a list that looked like it was written by Diddy? Oh and People chose Lil wayne and Lollipop against Alicia No one and even Kanye. BET SERIOUSLY GETS SURPRISING SOMETIMES.

Not bad. I disagree about The Dream and Chris Brown, and the UGK album was good, really, allot of good songs with allot of messages that you woulndt expect. They my favourite in that category, but I guess Gnals Barkley could have took it too, even thpo I cant stand it. But its cool, R.I.P. Pimp C. And the single was dope, no doubt.

Oh, and Lolipop is wack.

The BET Awards are really no different from other award shows. It's all just a popularity contest. Why even have a female rap award when there was no significant female rapper to make an impact? Missy won by default. I like Kanye but Lupe Fiasco should've been nominated & should've won best rap male. The male R&B list was really weak & DeVaughn should have won. I know Kanye won for best collabo but that song was his weakest collabo. If you're going to give it to him then give it to him for a better collabo(Homecoming feat. Chris Martin). The video of the year list was weak. And Will should've been nominated for I Am Legend. And I would've given male athlete to Chris Paul.

It just seems like they just threw some names up there in a lot of these categories.

The show itself was pretty bad too. Alicia's performance was real good though(it also helps that Alicia is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!). I liked how she got SWV, En Vogue & TLC to perform with her. Did I mention how BEAUTIFUL Alicia is?
