Grammy 2008 Big Winners: Winehouse, Kanye West and Herbie Hancock
(Published: February 11, 2008)

HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today) - The 50 year-old Grammy Awards showed their age by giving jazz artist Herbie Hancock the Album of the Year awards. And they showed their spunk with naming troubled singer Amy Winehouse the biggest overall winner of the night with five Grammys including Record and Song of the Year and Best New Artist.

The biggest surprise of the night? Herbie Hancock taking home the Album of the Year Award for "River: The Joni Letters." The Grammy Awards, who had an pre-show event the year hosted by American Association of Retired People, have been accused in the past of bypassing some edgy relevant acts in favor old timers.

"Joni Mitchell, thank you so much," Hancock exclaimed. "You know, it's been 43 years since the first and only time that a Jazz artist got the album of the year award. I'd like to thank the academy for courageously breaking the mold this time, and in doing so honoring the giants on the shoulders of whom I stand."
