Nothing beats the sweet, sweet taste of kiss cam victory.

Here, we recognize some of the greatest achievements in kiss cam history with a series of highly competitive superlative awards. Remember: If you practice really hard and believe in yourself, one day you, too, can go down as one of the best cam-kissers of all time.

Best Comeback

When her foolish date refused to kiss her on the Atlanta Hawks’ cam, this hero of a woman did the noble thing and ditched him for a neighbor who had his priorities in order. “A Tale as Old as Time,” indeed.

Most Cam Spirit

After giving her father a quick peck at a New York Mets game, Amy Schumer turned to boyfriend Ben Hanisch for a full-on kiss cam makeout. With the spirited smooch, Schumer and Hanisch proved that nothing comes before putting on a good show for the cam — even avoiding your father’s embarrassment.

Most Relatable

As these two young sports fans learned, romance does not always go as planned.

Most Prepared

Knowing the kiss cam would be on the prowl during a Minnesota Gophers Valentine’s Day game, fan Adam Martin came armed with a “My Sister” sign to avoid any confusion. “He always was a planner,” Martin’s sister Maria told PEOPLE at the time. “He brought the sign as a joke. He didn’t want people to think I was his girlfriend … Older brothers are so embarrassing.”

Classiest Kiss

Then-President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle warmed icy hearts across the world when they were caught on the cam at a 2012 Olympic basketball game. The kiss wasn’t so steamy that daughter Malia needed to cover her eyes, but was passionate enough to prove the presidential couple knows how to put on the romance. Now that’s bipartisanship.

Most Sincere

Never has a more genuine expression of love been caught on stadium cameras.

Best Multitasking

Cameron Diaz has many talents, and among her most impressive is the ability to make out with husband Benji Madden on the kiss cam without spilling her beer. Truly inspirational.

Best Scene-stealer

While a couple got affectionate in the seats below her, this video-bombing spectator showed the Atlanta Hawks kiss cam a thing or two about real love. Greasy love. Pizza love.

Cutest Kiss

David Beckham‘s daughter Harper was adorably fascinated she and her father were put on the big screen at a hockey game. Honestly, who wants to watch grown men hit a puck when there are cutie pies like this around?

Least Likely to Succeed

These people should’ve paid better attention to Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden. Luckily, only less than half a drink was harmed in the making of this tragic (yet hilarious) kiss cam moment.
