2012 MMVAs: Carly Rae Jepsen, Katy Perry among winners

Who were the winners?

The 2012 MuchMusic Awards have now officially started, and this article is reserved for one thing and one thing only — the big winners. (Be sure to head over to this link to check out the highlights from the red carpet pre-show.)

The first batch of awards was announced before the show began.

Most-Streamed Video – Carly Rae Jepsen, “Call Me Maybe”

Director of the Year – Danny Fernandez f. Josh Ramsay & Belly, “Hit Me Up”

MuchLoud Rock Video of the Year – The Sheepdogs, “I Don’t Know”

A whole slew of smaller awards – Marianas Trench

Now, we turn to the awards actually handed out on the show:

International Video of the Year – Katy Perry, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”

International Video of the Year by a Canadian – Justin Bieber, “Boyfriend”

Best Dressed – Carly Rae Jepsen

International Video of the Year – LMFAO, “Sexy and I Know It”

Video of the Year – Carly Rae Jepsen, “Call Me Maybe”

Favorite Artist or Group – Justin Bieber

UR Fave Video of the Year – Carly Rae Jepsen, “Call Me Maybe”

UR Fave International Artist / Group – Katy Perry

Overall, this year’s show was a thrill to watch, and away from the winners there was one specific reason for this — hosting duo LMFAO, who brought a little bit of insanity (and inappropriate behavior) to the show that was in many ways infectious. We saw Rico Rodriguez from “Modern Family” do the shuffle, Katy Perry perform dressed as a butterfly in a skin-tone bodysuit, and Perez Hilton try to one up LMFAO by saying that Katy was his “good friend.” Justin Bieber closed out the show with a set that includes “All Around the World” along with his recent smash hit “Boyfriend.”

What do you think about some of the winners from the show?
