Los Angeles, CA (February 5, 2024)—The Recording Academy has announced the winners of the 66th Annual Grammy Awards, including those categories honoring recording and mastering engineers, mixers, remixers and record producers.

Recent studies in the US and the UK show that women are still woefully under-represented in the music industry, especially behind the control room glass—but going into this year’s Grammy Awards, it seemed likely that female artists, at least, would have a good night. SZA topped the nominations list with nine, Phoebe Bridgers and Victoria Monét had seven nominations each, and boygenius, Brandy Clark, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift each had six nominations.

On the night, women dominated, with Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish (along with brother Finneas O’Connell), Miley Cyrus and Victoria Monét taking home the so-called Big Four awards: album of the year, song of the year, record of the year and best new artist, respectively. Female-led projects also won the best album awards in many of the genre categories, too, including pop vocal (Swift’s Midnights), alternative music (boygenius’ The Record), rock (Paramore’s This Is Why), progressive R&B (SZA’s SOS), R&B (Victoria Monét’s Jaguar II) and country (Lainey Wilson’s Bell Bottom Country).

Swift’s record-breaking fourth win for album of the year puts her ahead of Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon, the only other artists to have won the category three times. Accepting the award, Swift brought her engineer, Laura Sisk, along with producer Jack Antonoff and fellow artist and Grammy nominee Lana Del Rey to the stage with her. Serban Ghenea became the first person, never mind first artist, to win album of the year five times as an engineer/mixer on Midnights.

Antonoff won his third consecutive award for producer of the year, non-classical, equaling Babyface’s dominance in the mid-1990s and becoming only the second musician to win the category three times in a row.
