Премия Grammy

Одна из самых престижных музыкальных наград Грэмми присуждается Американской Ассоциацией Звукозаписи. Присуждения проводятся ежегодно начиная с 1958 года. Несмотря на то, что зачастую приоритет в выборе лауреатов отдавался представителям Североамериканского континента, Грэмми в любом случае является свидетельством высокого качества музыкальной продукции в самом лучшем смысле этого слова. Ниже приведены данные о ее лауреатах во всех категориях за восьмидесятые
