On Sunday night, Taylor Swift was named Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards. A major honor, for sure, and Swift reacted with the excitement and appreciation befitting the great trophy.
She seemed so enthused to win -- and surprised! It was as if she never expected it to happen... even though the Artist of the Year prize was her third award on the night, and the tenth AMA of her career. She reacted the same way earlier in the month when she won the CMA Entertainer of the Year Award -- despite it being her sixth CMA award. Wide-eyed, mouth covered and displaying unbridled joy, the prize seemed like a total surprise.
In fact, Swift, who has won countless major awards, including an impressive four Grammys, always seems a bit surprised when she wins an award. It's pretty endearing -- the girl is certainly not jaded -- and fun to watch. In honor of her win last night, we decided to go back and capture some of her biggest award show displays of shocked joy, and the sheer number of them is a bit jaw dropping.
