Grammy Awards 2014: Taylor Swift is shocked she didn’t win Album of the Year (GIF)

The Grammy Awards were handed out on Sunday night and numerous artists were rewarded for the year that they turned in musically. Macklemore and Daft Punk stole the show by sweeping some awards, with Macklemore walking way with multiple Grammys and Daft Punk sweeping the major categories they were nominated in.

One artist who didn’t win a single thing was Taylor Swift. Despite being nominated for Album of the Year in 2014 for an album that came out in 2012, Swift seemed to be under the impression that she stood a chance against the musically superior sounds and talents of everyone else she was nominated against.

No one in the world was shocked that the country pop star lost the Grammy — well, everyone except the country pop star herself. CBS camera captured her reaction when it was announced that Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories had won the Grammy and not Swift’s album Red.

The look on her face is priceless, as is the guy who’s sitting next to her, as it really seems she thought she had a chance. It’s not as though she put ut a particularly bad album, it’s jus that she seemed outclassed and out-manned by every other act she was up against.

It’s okay though, as this epic heartbreak has given Swift plenty of material for her next album I Hate French Guys in Helmets.

    No matter what she did you would of found a way to try and make her look bad. She had a human reaction for a split second she thought she won because she heard what she thought was red so did alot of people and guess what alot of music critic’s thought she easily could have won. This is really a NON STORY. Most of her hate comes from 1D fans who are still mad she dated Harry Stiles.Is that why you dont like her Josh?

  • franko12

    Actually Josh if album of the year was done correctly based on what an album of the year should be based she should have won going away there shouldn’t even be a discussion it sold more had more hits I could go on and on but see as with other awards shows the grammys are now garbage and winners are not based on what they should be based on therfore they are not truly legitimate awards

      So true!

    • Charity Means

      Wah. Taylor is a talented writer, but mediocre singer and is far less innovative and fresh than Daft Punk and basically all of the other nominees. Face it, she’s overrated.

  • Hannah Gray

    Seems like you have some pathetic hate against Taylor. I find it interesting that she has done nothing wrong, and yet you still choose to pick on her. Honestly, she could’ve sat there completely emotionless and you would’ve found something wrong with her, because you find it fun to pick on a 24 year old girl, don’t you? It’s fine, though. She’s way more successful and talented than you’ll ever even dream of being.

  • LizWoods

    Frankly, I’m glad she didn’t win anything. I’m sick to death of her bubble gum “love did me wrong” garbage. If not for auto tuning, this chick would never have made a dime. And even with auto tuning, she’s still not that great. Yeah, the kids love her. But they once loved Miley Cyrus, too.

    • jackie wheeler

      Taylor hasn’t gone to where i wouldn’t let a person under the age of 18 watch her. she is one of the good people who thinks more about her fans then the haters like you!

    • franko12

      Unfortunately no one likes you you ugly no good for nothing SK. K.

  • jackie wheeler

    SHE DID HAVE A CHANCE! YOU JUST DONT LIKE HER! WELL JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE A HATER DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY THIS! IF YOU HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY DONT SAY ANYTHING! YOU DONT KNOW HOW HARD TAYLOR WORKS! TAYLOR IS ONE OF THE FEW COUNTRY FEMALE SINGERS WHO HAVEN’T GONE TO THE POINT I WOULDN’T LET A PERSON UNDER THE AGE OF 18 WATCH THEM! YOU SHOULD THINK BEFORE YOU POST BECAUSE ALOT OF PEOPLE THOUGHT SHE HAD THE CHANCE AND I WAS ONE OF THEM. I HAVE GROWN UP LISTING TO TAYLOR, SHE REMINDS ME I CAN DO ANYTHING! SO THINK BEFORE YOU POST ABOUT ANYONE NEXT TIME BECAUSE IT WONT JUST BE THE ONE PERSON WHO IS HURT! YOU HAD BETTER START THINKING BEFORE YOU POST STUFF BECAUSE ONE DAY IT WONT TURN OUT GOOD FOR YOU!

    • LizWoods

      How old are you? You’re getting your panties in an awful wad over this nasal-whining pop princess. And, the use of caps is rude. Go take a nap and wake up in a better mood.

      • jackie wheeler

        Nun of your bisness. and he should think before he posts and my caps lock was stuck.

      • franko12

        You can go and crawl back under that rock SK you are probably fat ugly and a slug when is more than you will ever be and u can’t take it can u

    • mgmtmgmt

      No she didn’t have a chance.

    Taylor should have easily won album of the year. I listen to music all the time. All kinds of music in fact. Red is a great album with amazing songwriting from taylor. The Grammies are a joke. In 2012 when bob dylan put out his album tempest music critics loved it often giving 5 stars to the cd. It charted at number 3. Not bad for a music legend. In fact dylan is a poet and the greatest of all time in my humble opinion. The point is despite selling well and critically acclaimed the Grammies shunned dylan. Not a single nomination!!!!! Taylor swift is a gifted musician. One of the best. Red is a great album and will be in the Nashville hall of fame someday. I guarantee it. Haters get used to seeing a lot of taylor she will be around 4 ever. Draft punk is a joke compared to taylor. I’m up all night to get lucky? What does that even mean. I do not get it. Lucky what? Come on. This is a disappointing grammy year

    • Charity Means

      It means to hook up. Common slang word. And, Daft Punk deserved the award. Musically, they are far more innovative than Ms. Swift, who is a great songwriter, but lacks vocally for someone with her resume.

      • franko12

        A DAFT PUNK actually couldn’t shine Taylors shoes to be honest she is far more successful than the PUNKS will ever they only won because RAP cries every time they don’t win something I won’t say what I call RAP on this post and the Grammys are a joke

        • hat

          RAP cried? When did daft punk become rap? Guess you are an idiot

          • franko12

            ANd what the he– are they and what do they sing can’t be that great since I listen to top 40 along with a lot of other things nobody I know can name one song so they can’t be all that

          • Chantelle

            Your failure to look beyond top 40 hits does not automatically make Daft Punk or any other band/group/artist bad. If you genuinely believe that I feel very sorry for you.

          RIP your brain

    • Vikram Shankar

      Eh. You lost me at “Daft Punk” is a joke compared to Taylor. I like TSwift but Daft Punk rules. RAM definitely deserved album of the year and DP deserved every award they won.

      • franko12

        Again DP wouldn’t have won anything if the albums were rated correctly DAFT PUNK will never see the day they will sell out a stadium show let alone back to back so put that in your pipe and smoke it as I said they only won for one reason

        • Vikram Shankar

          No. Daft Punk is huge, and they create music that takes an immense amount of talent to create. They’re very skilled producers and have amazing ideas, and have put out a series of fantastic albums thus far. I’m fine if you like TSwift, I do too – but Daft Punk is definitely not inferior. I’ll put THAT in my pipe and smoke it, good sir.

          • franko12

            Yea Rap and that type of music takes a lot of creativity

          • franko12

            Or whatever u call what they sing

          • Vikram Shankar

            Daft Punk isn’t rap. They’re electronic although Random Access Memories borrows far more influence from classic r&b, disco, soul, etc. Furthermore, if we’re ONLY using sales to justify talent, then you must agree that Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP is better than Taylor Swift’s Fearless, since I believe it has sold more (11 million for Eminem, around 9 million for Fearless). But you just said rap takes no talent to create compared to Taylor Swift so I do believe we have a contradiction here. Bottom line – Taylor Swift has talent. Daft Punk has talent. You’d be a fool to not realize that.

          • Chantelle

            Well said. People tend to cling to generic genres for dear life. Artists/bands etc all borrow influences once and a while. If you think Daft Punk is just “rap” you’re displaying how ignorant and clueless you are when it comes to music.

            Spend a little time understanding the foundations of genres before you run your mouth insulting something you no very little about. This prevents embarrassing comments.

            Some act as though Taylor Swift is some sort of groundbreaking musician. She’s talented but “Woe-is-me” love songs – while entertaining and not bad is in no way original.

          • franko12

            They aren’t inferior did they sell 1.3million albums in a week did they have a sold out tour for their album if not they are inferior

  • Charity Means

    I don’t think she was shocked, she was just too anticipatory–like any Grammy nominee would be. The presenter really enunciated the “R” making it sound like he would say “Red” for 2 seconds before actually saying “Random Access Memories” by Daft Punk.

    • LizWoods

      Her response reminded me of the Faith Hill debacle at the country awards a few years back. The camera was on Faith as they announced the female vocalist award: “And the winner is …”, Faith put her hands up in a “what did I tell you” motion — the announcer said “Carrie Underwood”. Faith yelled “WHAT?” Yeah. I thought that was funny too.

      • Nat Mirotta

        Yes, and Faith and Taylor are good friends, now. So what is the big deal? All Artists would like to win, so you will get a surprised look from many, not just Taylor. But, I think Taylor handled herself gracefully, this time. but you know, it is Taylor. So you got these tabloids and haters and their mega (distorted) focus.

  • mgmtmgmt

    that’s her parents beside her…her dad gets so excited! kind of feel bad to see such an excited reaction and then see the disappointment, but daft punk definitely deserved it, that album is phenomenal..she didn’t have a chance with her competition. taylor swift isn’t that talented, she doesn’t push any boundaries vocally, and her fan base is dwindling, i think were just tired of the same thing over and over with her.

  • Raegan

    I’m so sorry for saying this I usually never get to this point but all you guys suck nady like what the frick is wrong with haters like the one that wrote taylor swift is amazing and loves her fans more than anything do just go hate on someone else sorry fir tga t and thank you♥:-)

  • It’seasy

    Everyone is reading this wrong and it’s gotten out of control they announced it “Rrrrrrandom Access Memories!!!” She thought they were announcing “Red” and she was shocked, she started clapping when they finished announcing. You’re all horrible.

  • Chantelle

    Different from her fake “I can’t believe I won” look. Talented but very overrated when it comes to award shows.
