Beyoncé Now Has the Most VMAs Ever

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is now the most decorated VMAs winner of all time.

Beyoncé’s six wins at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (Aug. 28, 2016) brought the tally of Moonmen in her possession from 16 to a grand total of 22 throughout the course of her career. Previously, Madonna held the record for the most VMA wins with 20 awards.

Beyoncé dedicated her win for Video of the Year with “Formation” to the people of New Orleans and won the categories for Best Female Video, Best Pop Video, Best Choreography, Best Direction, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, and Best Long Form Video. She also resurrected the audience at Madison Square Garden with her performance of Lemonade medley, so take that, Ed McMahon circa 1993.
