MTV Video Music Awards 2014: List of Winners!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards - a show now 30 years running, having outlived the music videos the network no longer even airs - were handed out Sunday.

Irony aside, without the VMAs, celebrities wouldn't have a much-needed summer excuse to bust out their zaniest getups, pull crazy $h!t and trend on social media.

Amber Rose at the VMAs
Hello there, Amber Rose! The model appears to have left some of her VMA dress at home.

Which is what it's all about, right? And let's be honest, if Miley Cyrus Twerking taught us anything, it's that arbitrary or not, videos or no videos, the VMAs are an EVENT.

One with a boatload of awards to hand out, and Miley Cyrus took home the Video of the Year Moonman for “Wrecking Ball,” her naked 2013 sensation.

Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran won Best Female and Best Male, respectively; Ariana Grande won Best Pop for “Problem” and Lorde won Best Rock for “Royals.”

There was also a touching Robin Williams VMA tribute, a half-naked Amber Rose on the red carpet, and performances and OMG moments galore, as expected.

Did Nicki Minaj upstage Miley? What else went down that we'll be talking about for the next day, month, even YEAR until the VMAs come around again?

Check back with us throughout the day as we break all that down for you. Below, follow the jump for a full list of winners from the 2014 MTV VMAs!
