Taylor Swift, who won the Gracie Award for her Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions concert film, thanked fans for the overwhelming support to the project.
The Gracie Awards, presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, “honors exemplary programming created by, for and about women,” according to the organization.
Swift, who thanked her collaborators, including Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner, for their work on the record and the accompanying Disney+ concert film, expressed her gratitude to the health care professionals on site who ensured the project was COVID-safe during production.
She then gave a big thank you to her fans. “Thank you for caring about all of this. Thank you for being the reason why we could come together in this way. You made this album what it is. And you continue to just blow me away all the time,” the singer said in the speech.
The 46th annual Gracie Awards, which took place virtually on the Alliance For Women in Media’s Facebook page on Tuesday (October 5), was executive produced by Vicangelo Bulluck and hosted by Canadian actor/comedian Lauren Ash.
