Nominations for the 2018 BET Awards were announced Tuesday (May 15th) by BET Networks. The nominations are determined by BET’s Voting Academy who come from a wide span of creative professionals. In addition to awarding Black talent across the spectrum of acting sports and philanthropy, this year’s Awards show is recognizing some of the best in the Inspirational category.

Formally called the “Best Gospel Artist Award”, this year’s awards cover some of the biggest songs and acts that have had a cultural impact. Named with Gospel royalty in mind, the renamed “Dr. Bobby Jones Best Gospel/Inspirational Award” has five nominations in the category this year:

Lecrae feat. Tori Kelly – I’ll Find You
Snoop Dogg feat. B. Slade – Words Are Few
Ledisi & Kirk Franklin – If You Don’t Mind
Marvin Sapp – Close

RCA Inspiration is triply celebratory as three of the label’s artists have been nominated. SVP and GM of RCA Inspiration stated Congratulations to Kirk, Marvin and Snoop! They continue to set the bar high and inspire other artists and the industry through their hard work, creativity and dedication. It’s an honor for us as a label to be able to share in their success.”
