Beyoncé and Jay Z Run Away with Most BET Awards Nominations
By Courtney E. Smith
The duo is nominated for a total of six awards, with four each under their belt — the overlap comes where the duo are nominated together for best collaboration and video of the year for “Drunk in Love.”
Beyoncé will face off against herself for that video of the year nomination, as her “Partition” clip is also up in the category. Her final of the four nominations is for best female R&B/pop artist.
Jay Z, in addition to his shared nominations, is also squaring off against himself in best collaboration, where his track “Holy Grail” with Justin Timberlake is in the running. He is also nominated for best male hip hop artist.
