A woodland creature and recent NYU alum, has made progress toward becoming a major Hollywood star.

The pop icon has now won a VMA for a video that was directed alone, making history as the first artist to do so.

She was also the first to win Video of the Year three times.

The longest music video to ever win in the category, her short film for the song "All Too Well is also appropriate.

She took the stage earlier in the evening to accept the award for Best Longform Video, then later to take the Video of the Year award.
