There was a lot of love for the Smith family at the BET Awards tonight as siblings Willow and Jaden Smith tied for the Young Stars honor at the ceremony.

The sister and brother, who were not only up against each other but also Shenelle Edmonds, Keke Palmer and Diggy Simmons, shared the honor in a tie for the award.

They hugged each other tightly as they heard their names announced and made their way up to the stage, where they were handed the trophies by actors Tracee Ellis Ross and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.

“I wanna say thank you to BET for giving us this award and to all of our fans,” said Jaden.

Willow then acknowledged their parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, who were in the audience. “I’d like to thank my mom and dad for letting us push harder and keeping us on track with our music and stuff,” she said.
