After performing at the World Series, headlining a 9/11 benefit concert at Madison Square Garden and being named MTV News' Hottest MC in the Game, it's no surprise that Jay-Z received the most nominations for the upcoming 2010 BET Awards.

The Brooklyn MC scored nods in the Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, Best Collaboration ("Empire State of Mind"), Video of the Year ("Empire State of Mind" and "Run this Town") and Viewer's Choice categories to lead the way with five nominations, it was announced Tuesday (May 18).

Teen heart throb Justin Bieber picked up a surprise nomination for Best New Artist, his only recognition. "That was not a joke," BET executive Stephen Hill said, laughing in response to the singer's nod.

Beyoncé (Best Female R&B Artist), Alicia Keys (Best Female R&B Artist), Trey Songz (Best Collaboration, for "Successful" and "Say Aah") and newcomer Melanie Fiona (Centric Award) were among the other multiple nominees, each receiving four nods.

Lil Wayne's protégés did well too, with Drake picking up three nominations, including Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, Nicki Minaj scoring two nods and Young Money as a collective earning three nominations, including as the only crew up for Best New Artist.

Drake and Nicki Minaj will also be among those scheduled to take the stage to perform during the evening, in addition to Trey Songz and Diddy-Dirty Money.

Rihanna, Fabolous, B.o.B, Monica, and Maxwell round out the multiple nominees with two nominations apiece.

New categories introduced for the show, now in its 10th year, include Best Movie and Young Stars Awards, in which Selena Gomez and Will Smith's daughter Willow will compete against each other.

Queen Latifah is set to host the festivities live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on June 27. "Mo'Nique will slap the sh-- outta me if I don't do a good job," Latifah told the gathered media, in regards to following in the footsteps of the comedian and Jada Pinkett-Smith as female hosts.

Diddy will host the post-show, as he counts down the release of his album, Last Train to Paris, which arrives June 28.

60% now.

Avatar has 16%. You think Michael would have loved Avatar? I have a feeling he would have. :]

Michael would be so mad if he knew his rehearsals were turned into a movie and nominated for best movie. He wasn't at his full Michael Jackson the performer best. He was just rehearsing.

Unfortunately I don't have BET anymore. I'm not sure why but if TII wins someone please let me know.

The other nominations(Avatar, Precious, The Blindside) picked for Best Movie were pretty good movies. It looks like TII is in the lead right now. I thought Precious was going to be a shoo-in for the award.

I've never seen the movie myself but I've always thought about Michael liking the movie.

IMO James Cameron is to movies what Michael was to music.
