Get ready yall, the 2009 BET Awards are right around the corner. Just last night, they announced the list of nominees. We’re not sure if Dream was channeling ‘Turbo’ from Breakin’ but that’s not a good look. Pop the hood for more

Who wants to BET that “Single Ladies” wins for Video of the Year?

That catchy tune is just one of the reasons Beyoncé was nominated for a leading five honors at the upcoming 2009 BET Awards, a mark matched only by T.I., who might not be able to make it to the June 28 ceremony his year.

In addition to two nods for top video (the other coming for “If I Were a Boy”), Beyoncé is up for Female R&B Artist of the Year (in which she competes against Jennifer Hudson, among others), Best Actress and a Viewers’ Choice honor.

T.I., who on March 27 was sentenced to 366 days in prison on a weapons charge and is expected to turn himself May 19, shares nominations for Video of the Year and Best Collaboration with Rihanna (“Live Your Life”). He’s also up for Best Collaboration with Yung Dro and Young LA on “Ain’t I,” Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and Viewers’ Choice.

Keri Hilson, Lil Wayne and T-Pain also had strong showings, with four nods apiece. T-Pain will square off against Jamie Foxx, Ne-Yo, Ryan Leslie and the Dream for Best Male R&B Artist. Lil Wayne is up against T.I., Kanye West, Young Jeezy and Rick Ross in the Male Hip-Hop Artist category.

Jamie Foxx, also a multiple award nominee, will host the event at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium.
