The BET Awards take place next month, and the nominations were announced this morning. Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown lead the pack with six each, including Video of the Year.

Beyonce and Lil Wayne aren’t that far behind with  four nominations. Newcomers DeJ Loaf, Tinashe, Sam Smith, Fetty Wap, Rae Sremmurd, and Bobby Shmurda (from behind bars) will battle it out for Best New Artist.
