Watch: "The Rundown": Amanda Seales Dishes on 2020 BET Awards

Sunday night got a lot more exciting.

After all, it was time for the 2020 BET Awards, a star-studded evening celebrating the very best in entertainment. This year, comedian Amanda Seales took the (virtual) stage as host of the event, which paid tribute to Kobe Bryant and Little Richard and featured performances by Alicia KeysChloe x Halle and Megan Thee Stallion among others. Plus, Michelle Obama presented Beyoncé with the Humanitarian Award for her decades-long commitment to philanthropy. A lot to celebrate, indeed.

But while there were festivities and laughs, the show also shined a light on current events and the worldwide call for social justice. "We would be a ridiculous Black show if we did not honor the Black Lives Matter movement, and if we didn't honor it several times throughout," Seales exclusively told E!'s Erin Lim ahead of the show. "If I'm hosting it, it's going to be Black everything."

To find out which of your favorite stars won big, check out the list below.
