The loud and glittery free-for-all known as the MTV Video Music Awards, held in Los Angeles, promised plenty of Lady Gaga, crazy performances, Lady Gaga, various drop-ins by the 'Jersey Shore' cast, Lady Gaga and ... Lady Gaga. Mission accomplished.

Gaga, who showed up with a military escort, won the first award of the night for best female video, for 'Bad Romance.' She was up for a total of 13 moonmans, which is a VMA record. She ended with eight -- another record, including the biggie: video of the year. Eminem wasn't far behind with an impressive eight nominations. His 'Not Afraid' won best male video and best hip-hop vid.
