Cardi was all smiles for the waiting photographers, which is no surprise considering she is nominated for 12 awards.

However there was drama before the show even began as Kylie Jenner and Nicki Minaj were 'moved away' from each other after a Twitter spat.
Nicki, 35, lashed out at Travis and Kylie over the weekend when she claimed the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star unfairly helped him get extra album sales by plugging his new release Astroworld.
MTV bosses unveiled the seating plan for tonight’s star studded ceremony online earlier this week.
Originally, Nicki was sat directly in front of the loved up couple.
However TMZ now claim that Travis, 26, and 21-year-old Kylie have been placed on the “opposite side of the room” from Nicki to avoid any confrontation.
Nicki’s new album failed to get to number one in the US Billboard 200 chart last week, while Travis’ has been at number one.
She shocked fans this week by lashing out online, telling her fans: “I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol.
“Im actually laughing. Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.”
