Check out all the big wins from last night’s BET Awards, including Kendrick Lamar winning Album of the Year for DAMN.

The 2018 BET Awards honored the best in R&B, hip-hop, film, sports and more. The show was hosted by Jamie Foxx.

Kendrick Lamar was the big winner of the night, taking home awards for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and Album of the Year for the must-listen-to DAMN.

Not surprisingly, Beyoncé took home the award for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist. All hail Queen Bey! Newcomer Cardi B won for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.
