‘BET Awards’ 2014: Full List of Winners


The 2014 BET Awards were held on Sunday, as the night honored some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

Hosted by comedian Chris Rock, the annual BET Awards started off a little rocky, with one man shot to death and another stabbed in two separate pre-show incidents. Rock used the violent incidents as part of his opening monologue joking that the BET Awards are truly the only award show where people have to worry about their safety. Rock proved to be a memorable emcee, as he took the page of 2014 Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres by passing out chicken and waffles to the guests in attendance.

Beyonce, Pharrell Williams and Twelve Years a Slave were the nights biggest winners. Beyonce and Twelve Years a Slave each managed to nab three awards, while Williams took home two awards.

The night’s other winners include Drake, who managed to beat out Jay Z for best male hip hop star and Nicki Minaj who took home the award for best female hip hop star. The 2014 ceremony also honored Lionel Richie with the lifetime achievement award.
