Grammys 2018: Winners List & Comment Party

Welcome to Stereogum’s Grammy day party central. In this post we’ll be collecting a running list of winners from today’s 60th annual Grammy Awards, beginning with the Premiere Ceremony from 3-6PM EST and continuing into the official broadcast live from Madison Square Garden starting at 7:30PM. We’ll also be hosting a conversation all day in the comments section, where your best insights and/or memes are welcome. Will this finally be Kendrick Lamar’s year? Will beloved woke ally Justin Timberlake be there to voice support for the #MeToo movement? Who’ll claim victory in the fascinating Best New Artist race? (And can it please be SZA?) We’ll know it all by the end of Music’s Biggest Night™. Until then we’ll be here experiencing it together, hoping it doesn’t suck too bad. Join us!

UPDATE: The final results are in. It was a huge night for Bruno Mars, who took home Album, Record, and Song Of The Year plus three other trophies. Alessia Cara seized Best New Artist; her competitor in that category, SZA, left without a single award despite five nominations. Although Jay-Z was the most nominated artist, he went home empty-handed, too. Lorde, denied the chance to perform her own music despite an Album Of The Year nomination, also did not win anything.

Kendrick Lamar was once again shut out in the general field categories (i.e. the big four) but claimed four awards including Best Rap Album and Best Music Video. Indie-rock veterans the War On Drugs, the National, Aimee Mann, and LCD Soundsystem took home their first Grammys for, respectively, Best Rock Album, Best Alternative Music Album, Best Folk Album, and Best Dance Recording. Father John Misty split the Best Recording Package award with Magín Díaz. Other winners included Foo Fighters, Chris Stapleton, Ed Sheeran, Dave Chappelle, the Weeknd, Childish Gambino, Mastodon, Jason Isbell, Justin Hurwitz, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Greg Kurstin, and the late Leonard Cohen.
