Who Won Big At The VMAs?

How many Moonmen can Beyoncé carry, anyway?

Pu a fork in them, ’cause the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards are done.

Beyoncé was the big winner of the night—and not just because she’s Beyoncé: Mrs. Carter walked away with the Moonman for “Hold Up” (Best Female Video) “Formation,” (Best Editing, Cinematography and Direction) and “Lemonade” itself (Best Longform Video).

Other big winners included DNCE, which won for Best New Artist, and Fifth Harmony, who took home Best Collaboration for “Work From Home,” their hit with Ty Dolla $ign.
