The 31st annual MTV Video Music Awards was held at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Aug. 24, 2014. Beyonce and Iggy Azalea got the most nominations with eight each. Read on to find out who the winners are.
Beyoncé won three Moonmen in addition to her Video Vanguard Award, an honor bestowed upon David Bowie, The Beatles and “A Hard Day’s Night” director Richard Lester at that very first ceremony in 1984.
Miley Cyrus won the award for Video of the Year for “Wrecking Ball.” The noteworthy point for the young singer was when she did something exceptional for her acceptance speech to raise awareness for homeless people — she had a homeless man go on stage to accept the award. Moreover, Sia’s “Chandelier” won as Best Choreography.
