Marianas Trench also picked up the favorite video award for "Stutter".
And the favorite artist or group was won by crossover country star Taylor Swift, who was on hand for her first appearance at the MMVAs as she brought her Red tour to Toronto for a two-night stand on Friday and Saturday.
In the international video of the year competition, Demi Lovato and her "Heart Attack" video beat out strong competition from Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors", Ed Sheeran and "Give Me Love" and Nicki Minaj's "Va Va Voom".
The best international video by a Canadian artist went to Avril Lavigne for "Here's to Never Growing Up".
The Canadian music video showcase included performances by Philip Phillips, Lovato, Sheeran, Lavigne and co-host Psy, who closed out the MMVAs by performing "Gentlemen".
