A list of top winners at the 61th annual Grammy Awards

Rap artists and women have both felt shunned by the Grammy Awards in recent years. But this year, they took center stage.

Childish Gambino’s disturbing look at race relations, ‘This is America’, won record and song of the year on Sunday’s telecast. It was the first time a rap-based song won both of those awards, considered, with album of the year, the recording industry’s most prestigious.
