And The Winners Are: 2015 Grammys Edition

Winners from last night include Beck, Sam Smith, St. Vincent, Aphex Twin, Kendrick Lamar, and Beyoncé (though not enough times, according to Kanye West).

The 57th Grammy Awards went down yesterday at The Staples Center in Los Angeles, and as is per the course for “Music’s Biggest Night” (emphasis on the quotes), it was surprising, predictable, strange, and straight-forward all at the same time. Once again, Kanye managed to maneuver himself into the headlines (all in the name of humility, of course), but the real story was Beck taking home Album of the Year for Morning Phase and Sam Smith cleaning up across the board for In The Lonely Hour and “Stay With Me” (though Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne probably should have accepted the awards themselves).

Check out the full list of winners below.
