Grammy Awards Winners

The Grammy Awards ceremony has grown in length as well as prestige over the past 48 years. Only 13 awards were given out in 1958 and more than 30 major awards are presented now. Among the categories that have been added over the years are Rock and Roll, Rap, New Age Music, Reggae and Music Videos. Not every award is given out every year. Some years, certain categories, for one reason or another, are not recognized with awards. And occasionally, two songs or artists win the same award in a tie.
