Top Billboard Music Award Winners of All Time (1990-2016)

Who holds the record for the most Billboard Music Award wins in history of the show?

From 1990 to 2016, the act with the most trophies on their shelf is Taylor Swift, with a whopping 21 wins. She took home her first award in 2011 (three wins, in fact) and then continued to rack up BBMAs as the years progressed (even taking home eight wins each in both 2013 and 2015). Her total increased to 21 in 2016, after she brought home one award at this year’s ceremony, for top touring artist.

The Billboard Music Awards began in 1990, and initially aired yearly through 2006. During those years, the Billboard Music Awards’ categories and winners were based on Billboard’s year-end charts, which are published in December each year. Not all year-end charts were represented on the yearly show. The BBMAs went on hiatus from 2007 through 2010. The BBMAs returned in 2011, on ABC. From 2011 onwards, the show’s categories were no longer based on the year-end charts. Instead, they now honor chart performance during a 12-month span of time, roughly running from the charts dated in early April of the previous year to early April of the current year.
