Last night, Beyoncé dominated the Chris Rock-hosted BET Awards in L.A., picking up statues for both Best Collaboration (with Jay Z) for her ode to chairs “Drunk in Love” as well as Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, beating out Janelle Monáe, Jhené Aiko, K. Michelle, Rihanna, and Tamar Braxton.

Pharrell Williams continued his big year by taking home the award for Best Male R&B/Pop Artist as well as the night’s biggest prize, Video of the Year, for “Happy.” (Beyoncé was nominated twice in that category, but clearly split her own vote.)

The night wasn’t without a few (inadvertent) surprise moments. The screen misspelled Lionel Richie’s name wrong during his Lifetime Achievement Award acceptance speech, and Robin Thicke made everyone uncomfortable with yet another public plea for wife Paula Patton to take him back. Perhaps it’s time for Patton to burn him a mix tape of Taylor Swift.
