Chris Brown carried on with the winning’ streak he began last year at the BET Hip Hop Awards (and continued with the Grammys) by nabbing the Best Male R&B Artist and AOL Fandemonium statues at the 2012 BET Awards. Others who emerged triumphant from the Los Angeles event were Kanye West and Jay-Z — collectively known as The Throne — who were named Best Group and earned the Video Of The Year title for “Otis”, and Jay’s wife Beyonce, who was crowned Best Female R&B Artist and, along with Alan Ferguson, won Video Director Of The Year.
Head below to catch the full list of winners at the 2012 BET Awards.
Upon The Throne’s big win, West walked onto the stage and fronted like his outspoken pal Jay-Z was not in attendance at the event. “I wish Jay-Z was here to say something politically correct,” he said as he began his acceptance speech. That’s when Hova ran out on stage and gave the rapper a celebratory bear hug.
