It's that time of year again where the Black Entertainment Television Awards arrive at the Microsoft Theater in LA to honour some of the greatest black superstars of our time. Unsurprisingly, Beyonce and Drake took home the most awards with three and four respectively but it was Michael B. Jordan and Taraji P. Henson who stole the show for the film honours.

Meanwhile, Drake took home the prize for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and shared awards for Best Collaboration with Rihanna ('Work') and Best Group with Future.
