And it turns out the win wasn't just exciting and well deserved, but record-breaking too.
In fact, Taylor made history last night by becoming the first woman artist to ever win Album of the Year three times.
But the win was made all the more poignant in light of comments Taylor made during her 2020 documentary, Miss Americana, where she admitted to feeling on the cusp of irrelevancy.
Speaking in the film as she approached her 30th birthday, Taylor said she believed that her 2019 album, Lover, was her last chance at achieving success on a mass scale before she was discarded by society.
"I wish I didn't feel like there's a better version of me out there," she said. "I feel that way all the time. It's a lot to process because we do exist in this society where women in entertainment are discarded in an elephant graveyard by the time they're 35."
"Everyone's a shiny new toy for two years," she went on. "The female artists that I know have reinvented themselves 20 times more than the male artists. We have to, or else you're out of a job."
"Constantly having to reinvent, constantly having to find new facets of yourself that people find to be shiny," she continued. "Be new to us, be young to us, but only in the way that we want. Reinvent yourself but only in a way we find to be equally comforting but also a challenge for you. Live out a narrative that we find to be interesting enough to entertain us, but not so crazy that it makes us uncomfortable."
