Nicki Minaj took home Best Female Video at the 2012 MTV VMAs Thursday night for her "Starships" video, beating out Rihanna, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and Beyonce.

This is the second win for Nicki after she picked up the Best Hip-Hop Video statue last year for "Super Bass," which was also nominated but ultimately didn't win in the Best Female category.

The Young Money rapper and 2 Chainz got the Best Hip-Hop nod for "Beez in the Trap" at this year's awards show but lost to Drake's "HYFR."

We lost count of how many times Nicki said "Oh my God" after taking the stage. She certainly seemed excited.
