Last night, Taylor Swift took home her 2nd consecutive ACM Award for Entertainer of the year. Spoiler alert: she was very surprised. In her speech, she flexed her gracious muscles, saying “I am just so amazed that the fans keep doing such incredibly nice things for me. I just want to hug them all the time and thank them for everything – it really blows my mind.”
Then, On Saturday night at the Kid’s Choice Awards, the first lady herself Michelle Obama awarded Taylor Swift with the “Big Help Award,” an award reserved for stars displaying a remarkable philanthropic effort. Taylor received the award this year for her efforts assisting American tornado and flood survivors, and volunteering at the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
How does the top earner in professional music stay as humble as Taylor Swift does? She’s been nominated for 162 major music awards, winning 102 of them, and yet every time she walks up to the podium to give her acceptance speech, she looks like the very last thing she expected to do that evening was to actually take an award home.
Pop Hunter decided to spend a Sunday combing through Youtube clips of Taylor’s some 102-odd acceptance speeches over the years, and post screencaps of her best “OH MY GOSH” faces. Here are the highlights.
This was Taylor’s first Grammy Award. She’s probably thinking “this will never happen again.”
Here’s the time-honoured tradition of Taylor grabbing her head in disbelief.
“You’re telling me I won for Best Country Solo performance AND Best Country Song? Is that even possible?!”
If she’s so surprised to be winning, why does her dress match the stage decor? Her designer definitely expected her to win.
Someone told her that they wouldn’t believe she was surprised unless her mouth was agape enough to fit the CMA inside of it.
“This is getting stupid! I only have so much shelf space!”
This is Taylor doing her best impression of a howler monkey, I imagine. Oooooooooooooh!
Even when the awards show producers send a camera crew to film her live via satellite, Taylor doesn’t expect to win.
She may just be surprised to be holding a surf board here. She’s thinking, “how am I going to fit this thing in my Beamer?”
Funnily enough, the time when she looks the least surprised is when something truly surprising is happening.
