And bow down to Beyonce

Beyoncé confirmed her Queen Bey status as she became the most awarded singer and female artist in Grammys history. Multiple wins yesterday – including best music video for Brown Skin Girl and best R&B performance for Black Parade – took her career total to 28 Grammys. She said it was a moment she’d been working towards since she was 9yo – the same age as daughter Blue Ivy, who also took home a Grammy yesterday. Other standout winners were Taylor Swift, who became the first woman to win album of the year 3 times and Billie Eilish, who took home record of the year for Everything I WantedThe full list of winners is here, and when it comes to red carpet looks, the Grammys didn’t disappoint.

Out overnight were the nominations for this year’s Oscars, and it’s all about black-and-white drama Mank. It received 10 nods, including a best actor chance for Gary Oldman. He’s up against Chadwick Boseman for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom – he became the first black actor to be posthumously nominated for the Academy Award. On the actress side, Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) and Frances McDormand (Nomadland) are favourites – and their female directors join 5 other women to have been nominated for an award in its history.
