'Most deserved': Fans in frenzy as Taylor Swift's 'All Too Well' wins Best Music Video at Grammys
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: There is absolutely no doubt that Midnight singer Taylor Swift's 'All Too Well: The Short Film' was a no-brainer win at this year's Grammys. Before tonight, Swift had won 11 Grammys, including one for Best Music Video. That was in 2018, when she and Kendrick Lamar took home the trophies for their 'Bad Blood' video. Since making the short film 'All Too Well,' Swift is said to be directing her feature debut, which is based on a script she wrote herself. In the music video, "Stranger Things' star Sadie Sink and 'Teen Wolf' Dylan O'Brien played a romantic couple whose relationship falls apart due to their age difference.
Taylor Swift's 'All Too Well' is a power ballad that blends country rock, soft rock, folk and arena rock. The lyrics use vivid imagery to tell the story of a romantic relationship and its subsequent dissolution. In 2021, the 'Anti-Hero' singer became the first woman to win the Grammy for Album of the Year three times. Swift is also the first artist to be nominated in the prestigious category for reworking one of her old songs.

'I can’t put into words what this means to me'
Taylor Swift won the 2023 Grammy Award for Best Music Video for 'All Too Well: The Short Film.' The self-directed video beat out work by Adele (for Xavier Dolan’s 'Easy on Me'), BTS (Yong Seok Choi’s 'Yet to Come'), Doja Cat (Child’s 'Woman'), Harry Styles (Tanu Muino’s 'As It Was'), and Kendrick Lamar (Lamar and Dave Free’s 'The Heart Part 5'). For Swift it's the first victory at the Grammys 2023.
As Swift was not at the premiere ceremony to accept her Grammy Award, she tweeted afterwards, “I can’t put into words what this means to me. For the @RecordingAcad and my peers to acknowledge me as a director, and in doing so, acknowledge my work to try and reclaim my music. I’m blown away. Thank you to all the fans who willed this to happen.”

'Well deserved that 10mins was everything'
However, the fans didn't take long to give their verdict, and the audience felt that Swift's 'All Too Well' was a well-deserved victory. A fan said, "MORE THAN DESERVED!" A fan commented, "Well deserved that 10mins was everything," while another added, "The Grammys made the right decision on giving Taylor this Grammy." A fan shared Taylor Swift's new song, 'Bejeweled' lyrics out of excitement, "Best believe she’s still bejeweled, when she walks in the room, she makes the whole place shimmer!" Lastly, a fan tweeted, "I support this win all the way."

The song is thought to be about her breakup with actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who is nine years her senior. “And I, left my scarf there at your sister’s house/And you’ve still got it in your drawer even now,” she sings but the Grammys might be better off if Swift’s first Song of the Year gramophone comes next year when she’s already a frontrunner for 'Anti-Hero.'
