The BET Awards are set to celebrate their 20th anniversary virtually. In a statement, BET announced its plans to move forward with this year’s edition of the awards which will celebrate the brightest stars across music, television, film, sports, and philanthropy.
2020 marks both the 20th anniversary of the awards and BET’s 40th anniversary. This year’s show will continue the rich history of providing fans with those special, not to be missed moments. The official nominations will be announced on a later date.
Speaking on the awards, President of BET, Scott Mills shared in part; “The BET Awards are a seminal event – the biggest celebration of Black culture, Black accomplishment, Black excellence, and Black potential. Our community, and the many millions who love the Black culture, look to the BET Awards for signature moments of enrichment, entertainment and empowerment. Recognising the unique role the BET Awards plays for so many, and the challenging times we find ourselves in, we know it was more important than ever to deliver the BET Awards in 2020.
The 2020 BET Awards will take air on 28 June 2020.
