MTV Video Music Awards 2021: Who Took Home All That Gold?

by at .

Let's get one thing out of the way right up front, shall we?

Machine Gun Kelly was the big winner at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night.

Because he took home a major trophy? No, even though he did.

It's because he got to go home at the end of the night with Megan Fox, however, who showed up to the event in Brooklyn dressed like this:

Hubba, f--king, hubba.

As for the actual hardware that was handed out?

As for the musicians who gave acceptance speeches and walked away with the trophies?

We suppose that matters, too, huh? Scroll down for a lost of the evening's winners...
