Taylor Swift & The Grammys By The Numbers, From Her Performances To Her Many, Many Noms
The closer we get to the end of 2015, the closer we get to the most wonderful time of the year: awards season. The Grammys are right around the corner, and I'm extra excited to watch the show this year, especially because I have a feeling Taylor Swift is going to clean up. The past year has (obviously) been huge for her, and even though I'm completely biased because I'm obsessed with the cat loving 25-year-old, 1989 was definitely one of the very best albums of the year. But before we talk about what Grammys Taylor Swift might win this year, let's take a look back at her history with the awards first.
I'll put it to you this way: The Grammys organization loves Taylor Swift. They even had an exhibit in her honor at the Grammys museum in LA, which ran last spring, called the Taylor Swift experience. And even before then, she and the Grammys had plenty of history. Her first nomination was in 2008, when she was nominated for Best New Artist and lost to Amy Winehouse, who was a pretty formidable opponent.
So what are Swift's Grammy stats? They're pretty impressive, and I have a feeling that this February, her collection is about to grow big time.
Grammy Nominations: 22
Yep, after that first nomination in 2008, Swift went on to collect 21 more noms, including two of the very prestigious Album Of The Year noms. Also interesting: She's been nominated for Record Of The Year three times. Not too shabby!
Grammy Wins: 7
In 2010, 2012, and 2013, Swift went home with the coveted awards. So far, only two of her albums so far have gone Grammy-less — Red and her first album, Taylor Swift. Red was nominated in four categories but didn't win any of them, and if you ask me, she was totally robbed since that was a great album. Besides, Swift has already admitted that directly after the show that year, she stuffed her face with In-N-Out and cried when she lost to Daft Punk for Album Of The Year that year. Poor thing!
Grammy Performances: 3
And those were for "Mean," "We Are Never Getting Back Together," and "All Too Well." Personally, I consider "All Too Well" to be one of her best performances of all time. Try to watch it and not cry. I dare you.
Most Grammys Won In One Year: 4
That was in 2010, for Fearless. Swift took home awards for Album Of The Year, Best Country Album, Best Female Country Vocal Performance, and Best Country Song.
Grammy Records Broken: 1
Swift's Album Of The Year award for Fearless made her the youngest artist to ever win that particular category, and she was only 20 at the time. If Swift wins Album Of The Year again for 1989 — and I bet that's likely — she'll break another record: She'll be the first woman to win that award twice as a solo artist. I have a good feeling about this!
