BET Awards Nominations 2012: Beyonce! Jay-Z! Kanye!

by at . Comments

Nominees for the 2012 BET Awards nominees were announced Tuesday, with Kanye West leading the pack, scoring a whopping seven nominations.

West earned not one but two Video of the Year nods for hits "N!ggas in Paris" and "Otis" ... Kim Kardashian must be so proud of her fake boyfriend.

Beyonce came in a close second with six nods, including Best Female R&B Artist alongside Mary J. Blige and Rihanna. Jay-Z got five nominations.

The video nominees are Beyonce for "Countdown," Bey again for "Love on Top, "Jay-Z and Kanye for "N!ggas in Paris," Jay and Kanye again for "Otis," and Usher for "Climax."

Do you realize what this means?

Kanye will likely interrupt Beyonce, or himself, to proclaim that Beyonce had one (or two) of the best videos of all time. It'll be awesome and awkward.

Other artists up for BET Awards in various categories include stars Drake, Lil Wayne, J. Cole, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross and Young Jeezy.

Nicki Minaj is set to perform on the show hosted by Samuel L. Jackson July 1.

Oh, and Chris Brown will lip-synch live at the ceremony as well. Burn! Follow THG on Twitter and go wild with the death threats, Team Breezy.
