The tallies are in and we’ve got the scoop on this year’s BET Awards nominees. This year’s ceremony will air live on June 26 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Coming out on top, Drake is the most nominated artist with a total of nine BET Award nominations. A few other big name artists include Beyonce and Rihanna who are both up for five awards this year.
