The 2021 BET Awards is officially back this year returning live on June 27th at L.A.’s Microsoft Theater.
This years show will have a vaccinated audience. Vaccinated individuals can register beginning May 27 for consideration to be a part of the 2021 awards.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, BET has been at the forefront of recovery efforts for our community, turning entertainment touchpoints into opportunities to empower our audiences and help combat the disproportionate impacts of Covid-19,” said BET President Scott Mills. “Vaccination rates among Black Americans are significantly lower than other communities. We are committed to using our signature programming event – The BET Awards – to encourage vaccination in our community.”
The 2021 BET Awards nominations will be announced at a later date.
