Doja Cat is the top nominee for the 2022 BET Awards, with six nods.

Doja is nominated for best female R&B/pop artist, best female hip hop artist, album of the year for Planet Her, BET Her for “Woman,” and two awards — video of the year and best collaboration — for “Kiss Me More,” featuring SZA.

Doja Cat is this year’s only artist, male or female, to be nominated in both R&B/pop and hip hop categories, a clear sign of her broad-based appeal.

Ari Lennox and Drake are runners-up, with four nods each.

Baby KeemSilk SonicChlöeFutureH.E.R.Jazmine SullivanYe (formerly Kanye West), Kendrick LamarLil BabyMary J. Blige and Tems each received three nominations.

Three albums that were nominated for album of the year at the 64th annual Grammy Awards are also nominated in that category here: H.E.R.’s Back of My Mind, West’s Donda, and Doja’s Planet Her.

The competition in that category here also includes Tyler, the Creator’s Call Me If You Get Lost, which won a Grammy for best rap album, and the deluxe edition of Jazmine Sullivan’s Heaux Tales, which won a Grammy for best R&B album. The other two nominees in that category here are Drake’s Certified Lover Boy and Silk Sonic’s An Evening With Silk Sonic. (The latter album was released after the Grammy eligibility cut-off.)

Baby Keem, who was nominated for best new artist at the Grammys, is also nominated in that category here. He faces Benny The Butcher, Latto, Muni Long, Tems and Yung Bleu.

“Kiss Me More” by Doja Cat featuring SZA, which won a Grammy for best pop duo/group performance, and “Family Ties” by Baby Keem & Lamar, which won a Grammy for best rap performance, are among the hits competing for best collaboration.

King Richard, which received an Oscar nomination for best picture, and Summer of Soul, which won an Oscar as documentary (feature) are vying for best movie with Candyman, Respect, Space Jam: A New Legacy and The Harder They Fall.

Will Smith, who had both the best and worst night of his career at the Oscars, winning best actor for King Richard but upstaging his own moment of triumph by slapping Chris Rock and shouting obscenities, has a chance to redeem himself here. He is nominated for best actor, though he again faces Denzel Washington, nominated for The Tragedy of Macbeth. The two stars competed for best actor at numerous awards shows, culminating in the Oscars.

Two busy actors are nominated here for two performances (shown, in each case, as a joint entry).   Forest Whitaker is nominated for best actor for his performances in Respect and Godfather of Harlem. Zendaya is nominated for best actress for her performances in Euphoria and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Nominations are determined by a voting academy that is comprised of entertainment pros in the fields of music, television, film, digital marketing, sports journalism, public relations, influencers and creative arts.

Hosted by Taraji P. Henson, the 2022 BET Awards will air live Sunday, June 26, on BET at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Connie Orlando, BET’s executive vice president, specials, music programming, music strategy, and news will oversee the annual show, along with Jamal Noisette, VP, specials, music programming & music strategy, who will serve as co-executive producer for BET. Jesse Collins Entertainment is the production company for the show with Collins, Dionne Harmon, and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay serving as executive producers.
