The winners for this year's Grammys have been announced, seeing a variety of stage favorites recognized

The winner of the award for Best Musical Theater Album category was the 2022 Broadway cast recording of Into the Woods, fending off stiff competition from the likes of A Strange Loop, MJ, Mr. Saturday Night, Caroline, or Change, and the live recording of Broadway's Six. Recipients of the Into the Woods Grammy include stars Sara Bareilles, Brian d'Arcy James, Patina Miller, and Phillipa Soo.

Elsewhere, Encanto (cowritten by Lin-Manuel Miranda) had a successful evening, picking up the Grammys for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media, Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media and Best Song Written For Visual Media (for "We Don't Talk About Bruno").

The evening also saw Viola Davis achieve EGOT status, following her win for Best Audiobook, Narration, and Storytelling Recording for her memoir Finding Me, as well as the Metropolitan Opera's recording of Terrence Blanchard's Fire Shut Up in My Bones Best Opera Recording.
