Check out the complete list of BET winners below.
As usual, this year's BET Awards were full of surprises.Â BeyonceÂ andÂ Jay ZÂ went into the 2014 BET Awards ceremony leading with four nominations, but this wasÂ Pharrell and August Alsina's night. With two wins each, the performers proved that their charting albums were no fluke.
WilliamsÂ won best male R&B/pop artist, along with best video for "Happy," while AlsinaÂ 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 atÂ Iggy Azalea.
