As expected, the Grammy Awards honored David Bowie’s final album in a big way.
Blackstar won all five awards it was nominated for, with Bowie receiving four of them -- Best Alternative Music Album, Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical plus Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for the title track. The album also won Best Recording Package, which was not an award to him.
Ironically, Bowie’s only other Grammy win (excluding a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006) came back in 1985, when he won Best Short Form Video for "Jazzin' for Blue Jean."
The Beatles’ Eight Days a Week: The Touring Years won for Best Music Film. It’s the third time the Fab Four have won the category -- The Beatles Anthology won in 1997 and All Together Now won in 2010. Ringo Starr tweeted, “Wow well done Ron Howard and all the production team and of course the Fabs. We actually got a Grammy for Eight Days a Week. Peace and love."
And Bob Dylan's The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 12 won Best Historical Album.
