Do I have an on-going war with the people who run Black Entertainment Television? No, I’m not on some Huey Freeman ish and wish that the executives would take themselves out via Japanese ritual suicide, I merely question everything they do. The fun thing about the network that like another three letter network that attempts to “entertain” with the rhetoric nobody really needs to catch on for fear of being the first people to believe May 21st really is the end of us all.

The 2011 BET Awards nominees were released yesterday and if you want a few laughs just from looking at names in particular categories then see the list after the jump. I mean, if Trina of all people can get salty she wasn’t nominated for a BET Award of all things, it kind of tells you where her career is at this point. That and Waka Flocka & Tyler Perry will be in the same venue, meaning Perry may cast Waka in his next Madea film. Oh God.
