While Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Drake are leading the pack with 5 nominations each, there are lots of YBF folks who snatched up 2014 BET Awards nods.  We've got the full list inside, plus nominees Mrs. Carter & Ms. Fenty covering VOGUE's special MET GALA issue....

The “BET Awards” 2014 will air live on Sunday, June 29th at 8pm ET on BET Networks from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, CA.  And you can definitely expect for the Carters to be front and center since they've got the most nominations, a tour to promote, and some damage control to do.

There are 20 categories, selected by BET’s Voting Academy comprised of a group of respected entertainment professionals in the fields of television, film, music, social media, digital marketing, sports journalism, public relations, creative arts and fans. And yep, TheYBF.com is part of that Academy.

Newcomers we're loving, Jhene Aiko and August Alsina, nabbed a nomination.  And the usual suspects like Chris Brown, Pharrell, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake, Kerry Washington and Tamar Braxton all nabbed a nom or two as well.
