And there are plenty of familiar names amongst the nominees, with the five stars who have been honoured the most in the history of the BET Awards in contention once again in 2023.

Tied on 12 wins are tennis legend Serena Williams, the most successful sportsperson in the history of the awards, and Nicki Minaj. The 23-time Grand Slam champion is again in the running for Sportswoman of the Year, while rapper and singer Minaj has been nominated in the Best Female HipHop Artist and Viewer’s Choice Award for “Super Freaky Girl”.
