Chris Brown Leads BET Awards 2011 Nominations

Chris Brown

What a difference a year makes. Last year, Chris Brown had a breakdown onstage while performing his emotional tribute to Michael Jackson at the BET Awards. Now the R&B superstar leads the pack with six nominations at the BET Awards 2011, including Video of the Year and Best Male R&B Artist. His collaborator Lil Wayne follows with five nods, while Rihanna, Drake, and Kanye West score four apiece.

In the coveted Video of the Year category, Chris’ “Look at Me Now” featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes will compete against Kanye West and Pusha T’s “Runaway,” Keri Hilson’s “Pretty Girl Rock,” B.o.B and Hayley Williams’ “Airplanes,” Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair,” and Marsha Ambrosius’ “Far Away.”

Other artists who picked up multiple nominations include Nicki Minaj, Marsha Ambrosius, B.o.B, Busta Rhymes, and Willow Smith.

    @Yaser Lad, I like Bey to but if she wins over JHud or Marsha Ambrosious it will be a complete joke! The fact that she got nominated when she hasn’t had any music on the charts in FOREVER and her current single is flopping proves that her nomination is a joke! She really shouldn’t win!

    Hell Keri Hilson is more deserving of that Award than Bey! SMH!

    Fail… This is really getting lame. Another year Iw on’t be watching the awards. Jazmine Sullivan, Monica, or Fantasia didn’t get nominated. Wow… Marsha should win that. & hold on Rihanna, female ‘R&B’? :O Beyonce… *no comment*. B.o.B. should win Male Hip Hop. Chris or Usher should win Male R&B, or Trey (but he’s more like Sex&B). I love Bruno, & Cee Lo’s good, but they aren’t R&B. Dead @ Diamond gettin nominated for Female Hip Hop. Lola Monroe should win that, but I’m sure Nicki will win that easily.

    [Reply]

    reine Reply:

    @Dave, completely agree with you !! i don’t get why they still nominate rihanna for best rnb female .. since when rihanna’s music is rnb ? the female mc category a JOKE !! cymphonique really ? and beyonce thats just the end !! *dead* it really shows that the nomination are bullshit and are based on some bullshit criteria. not like billboard who are based on stats and relevancy ! I don’t get why monica’s not nominated whereas she had a #2 album and a #1 rnb song !! hope the show is gonna be good doe ! chris brown would be performing for suure

  13. nicki minaj love

    FUCK BEYONCE, RIHANNA ETC… KEYSHIA COLE SHOULD OF BEEN IN THAT DAMN CATEGORY… BEYONCE HASN’T EVEN HAD NOTHING OUT.. SHE’S JUST PUTTING OUT THAT BULLSHIT SONG… I LIKE BEY.. BUT SHE HASNT PUT ANY WORK YET.. TO BE ON THAT NOMINEE.. IF ANYTHING I HOPE RIHANNA OR KERI HILSON WIN BEST R&B FEMALE ARTIST.. YAY FOR NICKI SHE SHOULD WIN THIS YEAR AGAIN!!!

    [Reply]

    yooo Reply:

    @nicki minaj love, keyshia cole is hot garbage LMAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOO. So is Beyonce’s new song so i’m not stan and actually not even a fan of hers. But Keyshia Cole? All I’m saying is go to youtube, search his eyes on the sparrow- keyshia cole, and then you’ll see why she didn’t get nominated. She sounds like a cat getting spun around by it’s tail. If anyone got robbed it’s JAZMINE SULLIVAN who sings circles around those chicks except J-Hud. It’s cool though she probably wouldn’t have showed up.

    ok, so it is a joke having BEY nominated again, right? she’s been killin for over ten years, let someone else shine. rihanna is not “r&b” i like her music, but its POP.

    and the same goes for usher, dude slays, but its like LET NW PEOPLE SHINE!!

    [Reply]

  21. Yaser Lad

    If people knew the background of being nominated you would understand. Keyshia Cole could have got nominated, but it’s up to the artist to accept that nomination. And Nicki has only got BET Awards, I’m not going to lie she needs to step up her game, if she wants to be crowned the Queen. Leave Beyonce alone, if it was you in her position would you turn down a nomination? #dumbass

    sam Reply:

    @Yaser Lad, what other awards is nicki suppose to have at this point in her career her album came out LIKE 6 months ago ? LOL

    [Reply]

    Yaser Lad Reply:

    @sam, BET Awards are great, but when it comes to Grammys etc they don’t come close. Nicki acts like she’s been giving gongs and shit, acting like she’s been in the game for yonks, but only a 2/3 Years; That’s not cool – Beyonce kept grinding for years acting like the rest not a Queen and look she’s got over 10 grammys and over 5 Bet Awards along with other major awards. Yet she doesn’t act like she’s somes cockass bitch.

    [Reply]

    Credits Reply:

    @Yaser Lad, oh so what you are saying is that, the artist has to accept the nomination before officially being on the list? If that is so, her acceptance would be a bit narcissistic don’t you think? I actually like beyonce but she hasn’t done anything worthy of the nomination in the past year….Jazmine Sullivan could of been there.

    [Reply]

    Yaser Lad Reply:

    @Credits, Don’t come at me. That is what I was told – Not from my mouth!!! I think people need to just come to the realisation that Beyonce is on top of everything, she’s past Jay’s level of getting what ever he wants and I think it’s based upon talent through out. Beyonce is too hard working to not even get a nomination, look at Grammys she never really did anything either but she got a nomination. And Keyshia and Jazmine need to grind a lot harder to get noticed, not just make music – it’s about business aswell and effort

    @DrizzlyBreeze, That’s funny cause he was nominated last year! Eminem is a rap/hip hop artist. BET does NOT exclude artist who are not black. Bruno Mars IS NOT black & neither is Tina Marie (RIP) It depends on the music not the race the artist is.

    You may not be racist but you’re ignorant! SMH!

    The BET Awards is the only award show that I basically like. I love it that the show is geared around talented and accomplished African Americans that deserve to be nominated and nominated for their work, all the others are bullshit! I feel as though Monica should have been in the Best Female R&B category, no offense but Rihanna is more Pop than she is R&B. And CB, I hope he wins the majority of his nominations specially Male R&B. Congrats to all the nominees though!

    Why is Beyonce nominated off nothing?
    Why is there still a female hip-hop category this yr? Nicki is the only rapper most ppl know in that category so she is gonna win. The others dont even got albums out.

    Im OVER bet awards nominations but i will be watching.

    Bruno should get best new artist, but knowing BET it could practically go to anyone there. All of them (besides willow) been out for a while

  65. Keepin' it real

    What is Beyonce doing in the female R&B category?
    Fantasia should’ve been nominated instead of Beyonce. BET is full of employees that are on drugs. It’s sad how people do not think logically anymore.

    I love R & B but its funny how every keep saying Fantasia and others got rob but do the urban community go out and buy their album or down load their singles, no they do not. Most of the people that BET nominated dominated the urban charts and mainstream charts and most of them have platinum singles from digital downloads. why every claiming about R&B artist no one is buying their singles and albums. Usher, Chris and Trey albums went gold and singles went platinum. Rihanna, Beyonce went platinum. So someone is buying their albums and singles and keep them receiving nominations. The other artist didn’t do as well on the charts and the charts are about sells. So if you want them nominated go buy their albums and download their singles on itunes.

    @zania, I agree with the first part of your comment regarding the lack of support that “we” give to true r&b artists. I disagree that the BET Awards should be about charts & sales though. Artists who were snubbed like Tank, R Kelly, El DeBarge, Keyshia, Jazmine, Chrisette Michelle, Monica, Fantasia, Janelle Monae, Faith Evans & Trina all work just as hard (if not harder) than the mainstream artists who went platinum and get recognition. I believe it is the responsibility of a station like BET to recognize them and their efforts.

    If Beyonce wins, I’m gonna be HIGHLY upset. I love her but I KNOW they could have found somebody else to nominate like Fantasia or Keyshia Cole. Beyonce has only put out ONE single and it’s not even doing that well.

  72. Why?

    First of all….been reading through comments posted. Have me lmao out loud like a damn fool….you guys are too funny…Kevin Hart is an amazing comedian… his humor is real..should be a great show…I just hope they have good performers…hope Beyonce don’t end up on stage looking wild with a group of high school kids dancing. She is so 2008 and b4. Keri Hilson should win..I hope she an Breezy perform “One Night Stand”…that would be HOT…They need to have a tribute to a good old R&B group like the Whispers, the Spinners, or Kool & and the Gang…

    I don’t know why they even tried it with the Female Hip-hop category. They need to eliminate that category and just put Nicki with the men. That category was a disgrace. Some of you are wrong, talking about how people accept nominations and the reason that some of these people were nominated were because they had platinum singles and albums. Lola Monroe is nominated and she doesn’t have a platinum single or album. Diamond is hot mess. Come on now, Cymphonique? You know, they are desperate. Hell, Trina tweeted ‘Fuck BET’ a few hours ago, so you mean to tell me that if they asked Trina to accept a nomination and she turned them down. Then why would she tweet that? Unless it was someone else tweeting it for her. BET that’s digusting. LOL

Nicki had all that HYPE and only scored two nominations.HAHAHAHAHHA!!!!! Thats why you’re MAD….Go Beyonce, you are the BEST. And you Kim HATERS, fall back. You’re scared that Nicki’s 14 minutes is up the end of this year!!! And congrats to Chris Brown…You deserve it!!!!

    I agree with all of the nominees except for Beyonce being nominated for Best Female R&B Artist. She hasn’t released her album yet. Keyshia Cole should’ve been nominated instead and Collin Tilley should’ve been nominated for Video Director of the Year because he directed half of the videos that came out in the past year and a half.

    [Reply]

  85. hated it

    VV Brown def. deserves to win. Wiz Khalifa and Bruno are the only real competition becuz their actual albums came out and did pretty well, but I love J.Cole (sorry you just need to put your damn foot down with Jigga and tell him to release your shit). Nicki Minaj is once again competing against no names, so she’s only winning becuz they put her in a category with no at her caliber, if I was her I’d be mad, becuz it takes away the real value of winning.

    And Airplanes will get snubbed for Look At Me Now, though Airplanes was the biggest song last year and Look At Me Now just came out (but is soooo infectious and popular among young ppl)

    And theres the commentary for the B.E.T awards this year and I will not be watching….well I say that every year, but I’m serious this time ;-)

  86. shaya

    proud of chris
    the only categories i have an issue with is female rap,female r&b and male actor
    nicki has no competition for the female rap category so thats her award
    I love bey and she does do crossover r&b/pop so i understand her being in that category normally but not this time when she hasnt even had a song out!
    And rihanna may be doing good but she not r&b at all
    until recently rihanna music wasnt even played on r&b stations unless a rapper was on the song with her
    and i love chris and his chase scene in takers was Everything but hes not the best actor.If they were going to put a musical artist in best actor category it should have been bow wow

  87. Tony

    @Christina…Ok then why was Justin Bieber nominated last year for best new artist if that’s the case? Plus Em has been nominated in the past so that makes no sense…and the BET awards are racist if they exclude based on race…the awards should be given out to who the best in each category is. I understand recognizing black actors because they typically don’t get the shine white actors do. R&B is a primarily black field so that makes sense as well…Rap is also a primarily black field, it just so happens that a white man rules the rap game…so give him his due and stop excluding him based on his race!

    The BET awards nominatations are always a JOKE. The female hip-hop artist always throws me off, like there’s no other female rappers right now besides Nicki so they should just give her the award & keep it pushing. EMINEM should be nominated for best collab w| Rihanna, um #1 song for 9 weeks! Beyonce hasn’t done shit so idk why she’s nominated. R.Kelly should be nominated for best male, his album was GOOD! & T.I. also got played. I can’t stand BET -_-

    It seems like real singers get overlook. I’m talking about real R&B SINGERS who don’t sell their souls out to go mainstream. Fantasia, Jazmine Sullivan, Monica, R. Kelly, Tank, Eric Benet and Keyshia Cole should have been nominated.

    I hope Marsha or Jennifer Hudson wins the Best Female R&B Artist. They are both the realest singers. And Kimberly Elise should have been nominated for Best Actress. Her performance in For Colored Girls was simply amazing. Kimberly gave an Oscar-worthy performance. Bow Wow should have been nominated for Best Actor for his performance in Madea’s Big Happy Family

    Miles Walker March 1, 2011 at 11:09 am Sorry for the Delay writing back I didn’t know I was still gnitteg questions, but happy to answer them. Alin, the tube Tech is one of my favorite tracking compressors for vocals, it is true. With your vocal chain of 1081 and C800 (a great choice I might add) start with the threshold down (as in off) and gain at 0db and have the meters looking at input (you could also accomplish this balanced setting by not engaging the compressor have it bypassed). Then looking at the VU meter, have the average level come in a bit under 0db. That’s one of the great features of using a CL-1B with a preamp like the neve you can use it’s input metering to look at the level straight off the pre. I love that. Once you have a nice level set there, engage the compressor, by starting to dial the threshold until you see a reduction at the peaks of the program. I usually use a 3:1 compression while tracking, and a medium fast attack and a pretty fast release with the fix/manual engaged. This is fine tuned depending on the style of the song (pop vs R&B) and also based on the tempo of the song .usually faster attacks/releases on faster songs, and longer/slower on ballads. Hope that gets you started .just a note about the CL-1b..the knobs are a bit delicate and you can get some might big changes while turning, as they aren’t stepped slowly sweep until it’s sounding good, then maybe mark your favorite spots so you can find them again later. SteveJoe thanks for the question, i appreciate you comment. For me, the main element of working on consoles that I miss over mixing in the box is the headroom available during the mixdown. Try as I might I always feel i’m topping out the stereo bus inside of protools very quickly, and having to adjust down my music levels, when on a desk I can just keep pushing the faders higher and still have plenty more to go. Of course it’s nice to have the ease of patching and routing on each channel, like you mentioned, but I’m pretty comfortable with that in ProTools too but it’s the summing of the stereo signal that I feel gets a bit cheated in the box. It really isnt’ a SONICS thing, as I think the summing sounds okay but it’s all about that headroom. A lot of my favorite mix engineers I really look up to are hybrid style mixers, and their smashing beats they mix sound great not only because of their eq choices, but I KNOW having that headroom of a desk is really putting it in my face. If budgets allow, I’m always trying to work on an SSL (4000g has the best headroom in my opinion! I love that console) so I can bring the best out in my mixes. There is a sonic difference too when working on the board .and each desk has it’s own thing about it. A lot of that is the eq color and choice and how repeated use of that across many channels with color you mix accordingly. Also the overall feel of a desk. For my money, the Low end is a bit smoother and rounder on SSL 9000js, with there is a great mid range energy that occurs on SSL 4000g desks. All these things go well together to make up a great mix .but first and foremost, if the song isn’t great, it doesn’t matter what desk you are mixing on! Hope that clears it up a bit. Take care and thanks again for the comments.
