Congratulations to Taylor Swift! She and the Civil Wars nabbed the golden gramophones at the 2013 Grammys for Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Their song, ‘Safe & Sound,’ was a haunting, dark tale from ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, one of two tracks Swift penned for the record (the other being ‘Eyes Open’). Swift was, predictably, surprised at the victory… or at least she made sure that she looked it.

While the group of songwriters all said their thanks, Civil Wars’ Joy Williams gave the cutest, most memorable speech, thanking her seven-month old baby boy, Miles (to Swift’s delight — she giggled and clapped), who joined her onstage last year… but in her belly. Aw!

Swift nabbed her trophy during the pre-telecast — before she’s set to open the official show with a rollicking performance of ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’

‘Safe & Sound’ is also up for a Best Country Duo or Group performance Grammy, so if Swifties have their way, this won’t be the trifecta’s only trip onto the stage together. Swift is also up for Record of the Year for ‘WANEGBT.’
