Like last year, the 2019 Grammys had stacked, diverse, interesting nominees. The winners were also really satisfying.

Most of the awards didn’t make it to air—that precious time was reserved for a bunch of empowerment posturing to remind you that the Grammys don’t hate women after all (though any event would benefit from 100% more Dolly Parton and 100% less Neil Portnow)—here’s a brief roundup of what was actually broadcasted. Check out the winners, bolded below next to their contemporaries/losers:
