The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards may have come and gone, but there’s still one creative area that we feel deserves a little recognition: selfies.

Whether duck-faced or all-smiles, Amaro or Valencia, those selfies taken by our fave celebrities at the VMAs are totally worth a little obsessing over — not to mention some completely fictional awards. Presenting the Selfie Awards! Let us begin!
