BET Awards 2012: Winners List

The Throne, Chris Brown and Beyoncé emerge the night's big winners.

The Carter household has plenty to celebrate!

Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z collected two awards each at the 2012 BET Awards on Sunday (July 1). After Kanye West, the married duo topped the nominations list and mockingly duked it out for the night's big award, Video of the Year (the Throne won, and B playfully jabbed her husband when their name was called). Beyoncé was the second-most-nominated act of the night with six awards.

Chris Brown also snagged two awards. Here's how everyone else fared!
