Entertainment Weekly's PopWatch blog has an astute commentary today about this year's BET Hip-Hop Awards -- and the fact that all the nominees are male. The writer finds this "truly a sad testament to the current (and glaring) lack of women in hip-hop. Even so, would it have killed the network to at least nominate British soul/rap siren Estelle for Best U.K. Hip-Hop Act?

And what about M.I.A.? Hello, 'Paper Planes' is the jam!"
