As usual, this year's BET Awards were full of surprises. Beyonce and Jay Z went into the 2014 BET Awards ceremony leading with four nominations, but this was Pharrell and August Alsina's night. With two wins each, the performers proved that their charting albums were no fluke.

Williams won best male R&B/pop artist, along with best video for "Happy," while Alsina took home the award for best new artist and the Coca-Cola viewers' choice award.

Young Money was awarded best group, with Lil Wayne and Minaj accepting the prize. Meanwhile, two of the group's members also walked away with trophies of their own. Drake beat out Jay-Z for best male hip hop star; Minaj won for best female hip hop star. In her acceptance speech, Minaj praised herself as a hip-hop star who doesn't have someone writing for her, an apparent dig at Iggy Azalea.
