Production Grammy Winners Announced

This year’s awards ceremony, held in New York City for the first time in 15 years, served up lots of excitement for those following the production side.

New York, NY (January 29, 2018)—Bruno Mars was the big winner at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards, taking home six from six nominations, including the three most prestigious prizes: album of the year, record of the year and song of the year.

Mars’ clean sweep meant that Kendrick Lamar was able to pick up only five awards from his seven nominations. Jay-Z, a local favorite at the show, which returned to New York City for its sixtieth anniversary after 14 years in Los Angeles, left empty-handed, despite having topped the nominations list this year with eight.
