Taylor Swift Acts Surprised

Gosh, can you believe Taylor Swift won four Grammys last night? You can? Perhaps that’s because she’s won every other award for which she’s been vaguely eligible — ACMAs, AMAs, BMAs, BMIAs, CMAAs, CMTAs, and, of course, VMAs. But if there’s one thing she’s better at than winning awards, it’s acting surprised while winning them. Last night she added an armful of Grammys, including Album of the Year, to her treasure chest, and a few more looks to her arsenal of shocked awards-show faces. Enjoy our slideshow of some of Swift’s most astonished trophy-winning expressions, captioned with actual quotes from her breathless acceptance speeches.

“This is my first time walking up those stairs to accept a Grammy on national television. Thank you so much.” [She had already won two untelevised Grammys.]
“All of us, when we’re all 80 years old and we are telling the same stories over and over again to our grandkids, and they’re so annoyed with us, this is the story we’re going to be telling over and over again — in 2010, that we got to win album of the year at the Grammys.”
“I want to thank my record label for letting me write every song on my album.”
“Oh my God. I just hope that you know how much this means to me. Oh my God.”
“I always wondered what it would be like to maybe win one of these some day, but never actually thought it would happen.”
“I just keep thinking back to when you’re in second grade, and you sing at your talent show for the first time, and people joke around and they say, ‘Oh, maybe we’ll see you at the Grammys someday.’ But that seems like the impossible dream. I feel like I’m standing here accepting an impossible dream right now and I thank you so much for that.”
“I just got a hug from Kris Kristofferson!”
“I’ll never forget this moment because in this moment everything that I’ve ever wanted has just happened to me.”
“I think a lot of people that know me know that if I talk to you for more than five minutes, I’m probably going to write a song about you.”
“This album is my diary and so to all the people who voted for me for this, thank you for saying that you like my diary.”
“I love Kris Kristofferson.”
“This is my first People’s Choice Award! I love you so much.”
