It was a special night on Sunday — not only did the BET Awards mark its 20th anniversary on Sunday but the network also celebrated its 40th year on TV. Insecure actress Amanda Seales hosted the show, which recognized top Black talent in music, sports, film, and more. Special categories included the BET Her Award, which went to "Brown Skin Girl" by Beyoncé, Blue Ivy, WizKid, and Saint Jhn, for its uplifting message.

During the virtual ceremony, which also aired on CBS for the first time, Beyoncé was also honored with the Humanitarian Award, while Jennifer Hudson stunned in a gorgeous live performance.
