MTV's Video Music Awards—the VMAs, for anyone who's been sentient and television'd since 1984—went down tonight, Sunday, August 30, 2015. The show's allure has always been split between celebrity glitz and silliness, supersized performances and, duh, the winners. (Also fun: The host, played this evening by Miley Cyrus, who supposedly headed ceremonies because MTV wouldn't let her perform -- although she ultimately did.)

The complete list of 2015 MTV VMA winners are below. Head here for the complete list of nominees.
