Taylor Swift won all six of the categories she was nominated for at the 2022 AMAs (American Music Awards) on Sunday. The singer-songwriter took home the night’s biggest honor, Artist of the Year, as well as Favorite Female Pop Artist and Favorite Female Country Artist.

Her re-recording of 2012’s Red, Red (Taylor’s Version), won the Favorite Country Album and Favorite Pop Album prizes, while All Too Well: The Short Film won the Favorite Music Video award.

In her acceptance speech for the Favorite Pop Album accolade, Swift said, “This album is a re-recorded album, and I cannot tell you how much my re-recorded albums mean to me. I never expected or assumed they would mean anything to you, so I can’t thank you enough for caring about this album that I’m so proud of.”
