One Direction band was the big winner at the 20th annual MTV Europe Music Awards in Glasgow taking the awards for Best Pop, Best Live and Biggest Fans.
The boys were not at the ceremony to collect the award in person but thanked their fans in video clips.
Other stars winning multiple awards included Ariana Grande, 5 Seconds of Summer and Katy Perry, who was also absent from the event.
The event was held at the Hydro arena in Glasgow on November 9.
Anaconda singer Nicki Minaj hosted the awards, as well as performing a medley of some of her biggest hits.
Other performers included U2, Ed Sheeran, Royal Blood and Kiesza, who performed a large part of her set from inside a glittery red phone box.
Alicia Keys was among artists performing at the O2 Academy in Glasgow as part of an outside broadcast. Her performance was shown live on TV screens around the Hydro.
Speaking ahead of the show James Currell, chief operating officer for Viacom International Media, who produce the show, said he hoped this year’s awards could reach even more viewers than in the previous year.

He said: “Tonight millions of viewers from across the world will see us from Glasgow on our 60 MTV channels and our 200 MTV digital properties.
“Last year we had 55 million people see the event. Could we do more tonight? Let’s keep our fingers crossed.”
Organizers revealed that 6,213 miles of cable had been installed to power the event, and a wiggery has been installed backstage to accommodate 500 wigs and 300 hairpieces.
Twenty two hairdressers and 40 make-up artists will assist the acts while 80 costumes have also been prepared.
The dressing rooms contain a number of treats, including a limited edition 10-year-old Highland single malt whisky from Glengoyne.
Meanwhile, each presenter and performer will be given presents including diamond and crystal jewellery, and SpongeBob SquarePants socks.
Gary Arthur has been named by Scottish police as one of the eight people who died after a helicopter crashed into a busy Glasgow pub.
Gary Arthur, 48, was from the Paisley area, Police Scotland said.
Three occupants of the Police Scotland aircraft died when it hit The Clutha at about 22:25 GMT on Friday. A further five people inside the pub also died.
Emergency services are continuing the operation to recover any remaining bodies. Prayers will be offered at Glasgow Cathedral later.
A further 14 people are being treated for serious injuries.
Police Scotland said in a statement that “the body of a male has been recovered from the scene”.

“The male has now been identified as Gary Arthur, aged 48, from the Paisley area. His family have been informed.
“Extensive efforts continue to recover the remaining bodies from the scene but, due to ongoing safety constraints, this is likely to take some time.”
Gary Arthur’s daughter Chloe, 18, who has played for the Scotland women’s football team and for Celtic women, took to Twitter to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and to pledge that she would make her much-loved father proud.
Chloe Arthur tweeted: “RIP dad. You’ll always mean the world to me, I promise to do you proud, I love you with all my heart.
“Thanks to everyone who has tweeted me, text me etc, means so much, I have the most amazing friends ever.”
Gary Arthur was a regular on the sidelines watching his daughter play at matches, according to Celtic women’s manager David Haley.
A minute’s silence will be held before Celtic’s Scottish Cup tie against Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday.
Celtic FC and the Scottish Football Association also sent their condolences.
Emergency teams working through the wreckage had two main purposes.
They wanted to be sure they had located everyone who might have been trapped inside and they wanted to recover as much of the police helicopter as they could to help find out what went wrong.
A police helicopter crashed into a busy pub in Glasgow city centre killing at least eight people.
Three people inside the helicopter and five people inside The Clutha pub were killed after the Police Scotland aircraft came down at 22:30 on Friday.
Other 14 people are being treated for “very serious injuries” in hospitals across the city.
A major investigation is under way and the Air Accidents Investigations Branch will conduct an inquiry into the crash.
Dr. Jennifer Armstrong, medical director at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said that of the 32 people taken to local hospitals after the crash, 18 had now been treated and discharged.
She confirmed that 14 people were still being treated for serious injuries.
“The main injuries we have seen include chest injuries, head injuries, long-bone fractures and lacerations,” she said.
It is thought that about 120 people were in the pub at the time of the crash.
Many were rescued or escaped but others were trapped by a collapse on the left-hand side of the building.

The three occupants of the helicopter who died were two police officers and a civilian pilot.
A significant number of personnel from Police Scotland, The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and Scottish Ambulance Service are still at the scene.
Police Scotland Chief Constable Sir Stephen House told a news conference on Saturday afternoon that they would remain there for some time.
Chief Constable House said the operation would go on “for many days yet”.
He paid tribute to the emergency service personnel who were working at the scene and the people of Glasgow who disregarded their own personal safety to help survivors in the aftermath of the crash.
Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told the same news conference that the increased death toll from the crash was “news that everybody today has been both dreading and expecting”.
Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond earlier described it as a “black day for Scotland.”
UK’s PM David Cameron paid tribute to the bravery of the “ordinary Glaswegians” who rushed to help.
Queen Elizabeth II has said her thoughts and prayers are with the victims of crash.
The Police Scotland helicopter which crashed was a twin-engine Eurocopter EC135 T2.
In a statement, Eurocopter said its experts were “on standby to support the investigation in every way possible”.
“An accident investigation team from Eurocopter is on its way to Scotland to assist the UK Air Accident Investigation Branch and the BFU (German AAIB) in its efforts to investigate the cause of the accident,” the statement said.
Helicopter operator Bond Air Services said it was working with the police and emergency services.
