Awards season is heating back up with the arrival of summer, and as of Monday morning, the nominations are in for the upcoming BET Awards on June 25.
Beyoncé leads the way this year with seven nominations for this year's award ceremony, with Bruno Mars also earning five of his own. The Queen Bey will be the sure favorite in categories including video of the year, album of the year, the viewer’s choice award, video director of the year and will even be competing with her sister Solange for the best female R&B/pop artist. Mars will have the chance to win best male R&B/pop artist, album of the year, the viewer’s choice award and video director of the year.
