Swish, swish, bish, another one in the basket—or make that six, if you’re Kendrick Lamar, who cleaned up at the 34th annual MTV Video Music Awards with more than a handful of humble wins.

In case you missed it, MTV did away with gendered categories and gave us a night to remember. And it was agreed that everyone up for the Best Fight Against the System award deserved to win after an emotional and brave speech from Susan Bro, mother to the late Heather Heyer, who lost her life protesting white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Here’s the complete list of winners.
