Not to miss an opportunity to reach one of the key demos for "Django Unchained" (December 25), Harvey Weinstein has booked Jamie Foxx and Quentin Tarantino as presenters for the BET Awards. Among the other presenters and performers slated for the BET Awards on July 1 are Tyler Perry, Laz Alonso, Kevin Hart, Cedric the Entertainer, Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good and host Samuel L. Jackson. Shadow and Act has more on the show.
BET recently hosted the after party for the LA Film Fest's gala screening of Ava DuVernay's "Middle of Nowhere," which wowed the audience into two standing ovations before a Q & A discussing the importance of reaching black audiences in a meaningful way.
