The 2016 BET Awards took place on Sunday night, honoring big names in music, film and television.

Beyonce, who kicked off the show with a fiery performance with Kendrick Lamar, was a big winner, winning video of the year for “Formation” as well as the Coca-Cola viewers’ choice award. Her album “Lemonade” was released in April, too late to be eligible for the awards — “Formation,” however, was released earlier in the year.

Bryson Tiller took home some big prizes as well: best male R&B/pop artist and best new artist. He was up for several other awards as well, including video of the year.
