The BET Hip Hop Awards 2011 nominations were announced yesterday on 106 & Park and while veteran acts like Lil Wayne (with a whopping 18 nominations), Jay-Z and Eminem were all represented, exciting new talent like Meek Mill, Big K.R.I.T. and Big Sean are also getting serious shine.

Comedian Mike Epps was announced as host of the award show once again, running backstage to the media room to yuk it up with the journalists and bloggers in attendance. Meek (pictured above) came out to deafening applause as his nominations were announced, but K.R.I.T. had the most touching moment of the show, telling hosts Terrence J and Rocsi his whole family were in front of their television and it took him all the strength in the world not to shed tears at the historic moment in his career.
