Taylor Swift won big early on at the 2016 Grammy Awards, taking home the prize for Best Music Video during the pre-telecast ceremony on Monday afternoon (Feb. 15).

Producer Ron Mohrhoff took the stage during the ceremony to accept on the part of Swift, who was not on hand because she is opening the televised portion of the broadcast later in the evening, and director Joseph Khan. “He wanted me to tell you that he’s a genius and very handsome,” he joked to the crowd in regard to Khan.

He turned serious when speaking of Swift, saying, “Obviously neither of us would be here if it weren’t for Taylor,” and noting her grace, vision, sense of humor and work ethic.

“Bad Blood” previously won Video of the Year and Best Collaboration at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Swift is also nominated for Song of the Year for “Blank Space,” as well as Album of the Year for 1989, in the 58th annual Grammy Awards.

It’s a huge payoff for Swift, who took a huge career risk when she left her position as the top-selling artist in country music to make a strictly pop album. She released 1989 at the end of 2014 and earned the respect not only of critics, but of an entirely new fanbase when it went on to become the biggest-selling album of the year, despite the fact that it was only in release for the last few weeks of 2014. The album also spawned the massive hit single, “Shake It Off.”
