BET Awards Honor The Young, The Old, The Dead, And The-Dream

Jun 25th, 2008 // 8 Comments

AP080624031201.jpgThe list of winners from last night’s BET Awards is full of fascination and surprise for any nerd who can’t help but care. Did the right “feat. T-Pain” win Best Collaboration? (Yes.) Is Missy Elliott doing better than any female artist who actually released an album in the last year? (Lil’ Mama was robbed!) Did UGK deserve “Best Group” and “Best Video” more than Playaz’ Circle and Ashanti or was it just a tribute to the passing Pimp C? (Both.) Kanye over Lil’ Wayne? (Weezy will have to settle for Viewer’s Choice.) Chris Brown over Ne-Yo? (A tragic tear under a tilted hat.)

(Winners in italics.)

    Can we just stop for a second and celebrate the fact that Beyonce received no nominations (for once)?

  2. Silverfuture

    Damn, is that Busta or Bootsy?

    @HONEYBFLY: Yes, yes, yes. It almost makes up for the fact that Estelle was robbed.

    Next year Weezy better sweep though.

  4. Al Shipley

    @Silverfuture: Neither!

    @Silverfuture: Yeah, apparently T-Pain is doing some kinda “Ringleader” schtick now. Welcoming people to his circus or something. Cool tour idea?

    So how exactly does one make the Video of the Year, and NOT be named Video Director of the year?

    I was just happy to see Al Green AND Maxwell! That’s a good time for any channel, especially BET.
