MTV VMAs holds first red carpet event during COVID-19 (Photos, Winners list)

The MTV Video Music Awards held the first red carpet event during the coronavirus pandemic in New York on Sunday night.

The 2020 VMAs awards which was originally scheduled to be held at Barclays Center was scrapped and rather conducted in an outdoor format across the city.

Photos of the event came from all different locations instead of one central spot (and some were shot ahead of time, as celebrities recorded segments in advance).

A few celebrities did pose in their ensembles (and for some, their masks, as it's safety first).

The award show is dedicated to Chadwick Boseman, the US "Black Panther" actor who died of colon cancer two days before the ceremony.

See some photos and list of winners below.
