Rihanna walked away with the top award, Video Of The Year, at Thursday's 2012 MTV Video Music Awards--but she wasn't the biggest overall winner of the night. That honor went to British sensations and "X Factor U.K" stars One Direction, who picked up three moonmen for "What Makes You Beautiful." (They actually broke one of their moonmen during an acceptance speech, but luckily, they had a couple backup trophies.) M.I.A., who was, ironically, M.I.A. at the show, won two awards, as did Rihanna's ex Chris Brown, who was on hand to accept his Best Male Video trophy in person.
