BET has some news, and it ain’t Little—the 2019 awards ceremony has a host, and it’s none other than Regina Hall!
Per BET’s press release:
Regina Hall is one of entertainment’s top leading actresses and a renowned comedian. She is best known for her leading roles in Girls Trip and the internationally recognized Scary Movie film series. Hall recently broke records when she was named the first African-American woman to win Best Actress by the New York Film Critics Circle for her role in Support the Girls. Most recently Hall executive produced Little for Universal and can currently be seen in Showtime’s Black Monday. Up next, Hall will be seen in the Warner Bros. film Shaft opposite Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie T. Usher and Alexandra Shipp. The film is set to release June 14th, 2019.
Looking forward to Regina bringing some of her goofy antics to the awards show! Perhaps a musical number with all of the ladies in the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist category, since black female rappers are killing the game right now? Or maybe recreating Bey and Jay’s “Apeshit” video, but with Marsai Martin?
BET also recently announced its list of nominations, with Cardi B taking the lead with 7 noms.
The 2019 BET Awards will air live on BET (naturally), Sunday, June 23 at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT. The live ceremony will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
