BET Awards 2011 - WTF

BET recent announced it's nominations for BET Awards 2011. And boy are there some surprise nominations there....left me thinking WTF. Apparently the BET Awards nominees are those that are honoured for the very best in music, entertainment and black achievement in 2011? That said who did some of these acts make it onto the list. I think I am the most disappointed by the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist category.
