The BET Awards is an American award show that was established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African American in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past year. The awards are presented annually, and are broadcast live on BET. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a televised ceremony.

The 21st annual BET awards returned Sunday night with the theme “Year of the Black Woman.” Award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson hosted the ceremony from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where a live audience attended for the first time since the pandemic began.
