The Black Entertainment Television (BET) awards returned to its in-person, live show format on Sunday as it honoured the best in the music and film industry. The theme for this year's award ceremony was "Year of the Black Woman" and was hosted by Taraji P Henson. Kickstarting the ceremony, the actress said, "I am so excited to be here with humans; we need each other." Several celebrities kept on their masks during the show, while many others didn't. 

Henson further added, "We gonna be Black AF tonight. Tonight we’re also reclaiming our aesthetics, baby hairs, long blinged-out nails, yeah, we taking all that back, gold hoops, bamboo earrings. … Our Black men, we want all y’all back, because we love you, we see you, kings, and most importantly, we need you."
