Before the official 2023 Grammy Awards kicked off tonight, several awards were given out during a pre-show, including announcing who won for Best Music Video. A stacked category that included submissions from BTS to Harry Styles, Taylor Swift ended up winning with her “All Too Well: The Short Film” for the ten-minute rerecorded version.
It also marked Swift’s continued foray into directing, as she cast Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien in the video. Throughout last year, she attended film festivals like TIFF to showcase and speak on her experience creating the project.
“I can’t put into words what this means to me. For the @RecordingAcad and my peers to acknowledge me as a director, and in doing so, acknowledge my work to try and reclaim my music…” she shared on Twitter. “I’m blown away. Thank you to all the fans who willed this to happen.”
