Here Are All The Winners From The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards

The coronavirus pandemic hasn’t stopped this year’s MTV Video Music Awards from going ahead – albeit in a different format to usual. This year’s event featured a slew of remote performances from across New York from the likes of The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and more.

Big winners on the night included Gaga, who picked up Artist of the Year along with Song of the Year and Best Collaboration for her Ariana Grande-featuring ‘Rain on Me’. BTS also won big, receiving Best Group, Best K-Pop, Best Pop and Best Choreography awards.

To reflect the times, two new categories were added this time around – Best Music Video from Home, which went to Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber for ‘Stuck with U’, and Best Quarantine Performance, which went to CNCO for their ‘Unplugged at Home’ show.

See the full list of winners (in bold) and nominees below.
