Taylor Swift Surprised By Announcement of Early Emmy Awards Win
No one was more surprised than Taylor Swift herself to find out that she won an early Emmy Award.
The winners of a few of the 2015 Emmy Awards were announced by the TV Academy on Thursday morning (Sept. 10), and Swift's "AMEX Unstaged: Taylor Swift Experience" nabbed the trophy for Original Interactive Program. The project -- on which Swift was an executive producer -- was released along with Swift's Joseph Kahn-directed "Blank Space" music video in late 2014 and allowed fans to explore the impressive and gorgeous video set from 360 degrees.
Swift had no idea that she'd won the award until she saw a news website report about it. According to her tweet, she processed it in the following way: "1. Wakes up 2. Reads this 3. Thinks it's a prank 4. Calls everyone to check 5. It's real 6. [Party hat emoticons]."
The rest of the 2015 Emmy Awards will be handed out later this month. The Creative Arts ceremony is scheduled to take place on Sept. 12, while the Primetime Emmys are set for Sept. 20.
The 25-year-old Swift has been spending her time on the road, on her impressive 2015 1989 World Tour. Throughout the trek, she's welcomed a jaw-dropping amount of superstars to the stage, from models to basketball players and even the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team. Swift recently brought the Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines onstage in Los Angeles to perform "Goodbye Earle."
“If not for this woman and her band, I would not have known that you could be quirky, be fun, be yourself, be outspoken and brave and real,” Swift said before introducing Maines. “I wouldn’t have, when I was, you know, 9 years old, gotten my first CD. I wouldn’t have dreamed the things that I dreamed, and I wouldn’t be standing on this stage today.”
