BET 2021: Queen Latifah Honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award, Naomi Osaka, Cardi B, Burna Boy, Others Emerge Winners!

Hosted by Taraji P. Henson at the Los Angeles Microsoft Theater, the highly anticipated 21st annual BET Award ceremony recognizing black excellence in music, television, film and sports held Sunday night, with this year’s theme – Year of the Black Woman.

“Celebrating Black women isn’t a fad or a trend it’s a forever mood” Henson said, opening up the show. “There is more than enough room for all of us to thrive, because can’t nobody be like me and can’t nobody be you like you.”

The event saw critically acclaimed rapper and actress Queen Latifah receive this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award for her “amazing success” throughout her decades-long career.

“I want to thank BET for creating an outlet for beautiful Blackness to thrive, to shine,” an emotional Queen Latifah said while accepting her award. “When we couldn’t get played on the radio in other places, we couldn’t get our videos played in other places, there was BET that allowed us to be in our fullness.”

Grand slam winner Osaka clinched the Sportswoman of the year award, Grammy award winner Burna Boy – Best international act, Rapper Megan Thee Stallion who tied with DaBaby for most nominations of the night took home awards for “Best Female Hip Hop Artist,” “Best Collaboration,” “Viewer’s Choice” and “Video of the Year”, Andra Day was named best actress for her role in The United States vs. Billie Holiday, Video of the Year went to WAP by Cardi B who pulled off the surprise of the night showing off her baby bump while performing with Migos.
