BEYONCE & JENNIFER HUDSON WIN BIG

 

Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson, co-stars in Dreamgirls, were the big winners at Tuesday's (June 26) BET Awards.

 

The event was held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, and broadcast on the BET cable channel.  The singer-actresses each took home two awards.

 

Beyonce was named best female R&B artist and won for video of the year for Irreplaceable.  Meanwhile Hudson won best new artist and best female actress.

 

Forest Whitaker was named best male actor for his work in The Last King of Scotland during the ceremony, hosted for the third time by actress-comedian Mo'Nique.

 

Both Hudson and Whitaker nabbed Oscars this year for their performances.

 

Elsewhere in the music categories, Ne-Yo took home the award for best male R&B artist, while Gnarls Barkley won for best group.

 

T.I. was a repeat winner this year with another nod as best hip-hop artist, while Kirk Franklin also repeated his win as best gospel artist.

 

Winning the award for best song collaboration was Runaway Love, by Ludacris featuring Mary J Blige.  The "BET J Cool Like That" award went to R and B singer Gerald Levert, who died in November.

 

Basketball star LeBron James was again named male athlete of the year, while tennis pro Serena Williams scored with the award for female athlete of the year.

 

Diana Ross was honored with a lifetime achievement award, and Don Cheadle was honoured for his efforts to raise awareness about the genocide in Darfur.
