Ryan Coogler, the director of Black Panther won the award for Best Movie at this year's BET Awards.

At the 2018 BET Awards, hosted by Jamie Foxx at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on June 24, there were big wins for Black Panther, SZA, Beyoncé and singing legend Anita Baker, who picked up a Lifetime Achievement prize.

Rising singer H.E.R. had the night's best performance, as she sang the R&B hit "Focus", played the electric guitar like a rock star and sang softly during the sweet love song "Best Part", where she was joined by Daniel Caesar.

Sundays' 18th annual BET Awards drew 4.3 million total viewers across eight Viacom networks. "I have something that they don't have". "It was about tapping into the voice that tells us to be proud of who will are".

Gary Neville on 'real deal' Harry Kane and England's approach to Belgium
Four years ago, England failed to win a match at the World Cup and was eliminated in the group stage. Him and (Ruben) Loftus-Cheek have been great together and have a good understanding.

Including performances from Nicki Minaj, Migos, J. Cole and more.

This is the first time a nominee of the Best International Act category is receiving the award during the live show since the inception of that category in 2010.

His obsession, though, led to a rather cringe-worthy moment during the awards show, in which he invited the multi-hyphenate Donald Glover onstage and essentially pressured him into an impromptu performance of the track. Minaj, an award-winning rapper, was born in St James.
