    ROFL, Bet is a racist peice of shit. Maybe back in the day was Bet actually needed. But newsflash no one fucking cares what the race of anyone is nowadays. Its 2012 lol. Think its time for Bet to realize that white people arent assfucks like they make us out to be on that network. Plus its pretty damn sad when they eliminate all white people and other races for an award show. I mean hell what the hell is the point of winning it? Oh so you want an award saying your the best black actress instead of the best actress? Thats dumb I would be like "no thanks I dont want an award based on the fact that you eliminated so many other people and made it so easy to win".

    Why is 2 Chainz nominated for anything?? BET should cancel this shit already. There are the same rappers in almost every category. This shit is gonna be boring af, hearing the same 5 names over, and over, and OVER again.

    It's obvious you assholes don't know anything about rap music or BET. Like it or not Kanye has been one of the top rappers and producers in the game for a long motherfucking time now. This isn't about Kim Kanye has earned every nomination like everyone else on this list. If you motherfuckers weren't so jealous you would know that. Kanye was doing his thang and making hit records and winning awards way before Kim. So sorry to disappoint all you fucking haters out there.
