MTV Video Music Awards 2016: List of Winners!

by at .

The 2016 MTV VMAs (or Video Music Awards, to use the official name) were handed out on Sunday night for the 32nd straight year.

Beyonce Accepts Best Female Video VMAs 2016

As in each of the last 31 years, the VMAs - which ironically have long outlived the music videos that put MTV on the map - didn't disappoint.

Between epic live performances, celebrities' insane getups and more viral moments than we can count, the VMAs always live up to their billing.

That's what it's all about, right? A feast for the senses. A tribute to all things pop culture. Unabashed, over-the-top entertainment at its finest.

The big questions this year, other than why Taylor Swift bailed, were whether anyone could stop Beyonce, and how Britney would do.

After The Debacle of 2007, we've had a long time to think about when she last graced the VMA stage. Also, did Rihanna bring the house down?

Check back with THG early and often as we break all that down for you. For now, check out the list of winners from the 2016 MTV VMAs ...
