Chelsea Handler's much anticipated turn as host of Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles is getting some mixed reviews.

The taped opening segment with fresh-out-of-rehab Lindsay Lohan got some positive feedback as did her hot tub adventure with the "Jersey Shore" cast.

But many critics thought her jokes fell flat and said they were expecting more from the show's first female host since 1994. We here at MTV News like to think that history is made every time we put on a Video Music Awards ceremony. Over the course of nearly three decades, we've provided you with some of the most indelible images in pop music history, from the Britney-Madonna kiss to last year's Kanye/Taylor Swift moment and dozens of others in between.

Sunday night's show was no exception, with another flood of VMA firsts provided by eight-time winner Lady Gaga, West and, of course, randy host Chelsea Handler. Here are some of our favorite VMA firsts from the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times called her the show's "worst host ever" and the Washington Post said her punch lines "felt a few degrees below crass."

On the other hand, Entertainment Weekly complimented her on a "workmanlike " job and The Los Angeles Times called her "a game presence " on the show.
