The MTV Video Music Awards, hosted by Miley Cyrus, are live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, and Gossip Cop has the full VMAs winners list. Check out all the winners below!

Taylor Swift leads all other artists with the most nominations. She’s up for 10 awards, including Video of the Year, Best Female Video, Best Pop Video, and Song of Summer. Ed Sheeran is in second with six nominations. He’s up against his friend Swift in a number of categories, including Video of the Year and Best Pop Video for his song “Thinking Out Loud.”

What’s interesting is that Kendrick Lamar has four nominations, but is featured on Swift’s “Bad Blood” and Flying Lotus’ “Never Catch Me,” meaning he’s noted for 13 nominations. Also, FKA Twigs is nominated for three Video Music Awards, including Artist to Watch.

In addition to the competitive awards, Kanye West is being presented the VMAs’ highest honor, the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. MTV is awarding him the special Moonman for his “groundbreaking videos, legendary VMA performances, and continued impact on music.” Among the past recipients of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award are Britney Spears, Madonna, Justin Timberlake and 2014 awardee Beyonce.
