The I like hitmaker scored 10 categories, including video, song and artist of the year, and The Carters secured eight, including video of the year, best collaboration and best Hip Hop for their recent hit single APES**T. However, Childish Gambino, Drake and Bruno Mars are giving them a run for their money being nominated in the same category. 

Cardi B's VMA journey 

While Kulture’s mommy has never won a VMA, she did give a stellar performance in 2017, wearing a sparkling ensemble and thigh-high boots.

The Carter's VMA journey 

The pair has scooped multiple VMA's as individuals and never as a couple, as this is their first album as Mr. and Mrs. Carter. Who could forget the heartwarming moment when Jay-Z and Beyoncé hit the stage with their daughter Blue Ivy Carter? Certainly not us! That was the cutest highlight of the evening.
