Baby Shark, Asshole parrots, and leopard print. If you don't know how those three things are connected then you obviously weren't watching the Lovin Malta Social media Awards today. And if you were watching... well wasn't that a wild ride?

The Social Media Awards saw over 20 different influencers, artists, and personalities walk away with an award that celebrated their social media presence and achievements for the year 2018. All the winners were voted for by the public, except for the surprise 'Lovin Malta Award' that was given to somebody chosen by everyone here at team Lovin, but more on that later.

Over 110,000 votes were cast in just five days

And the awards were handed out during the live show today. And in case you missed it, or you just want to re-live the moment your favourite nominee was awarded, here's a rundown of who won what.
