Awards were also posthumously given to Leonard Cohen, for best rock performance, and Carrie Fisher, for best spoken word album with her reading of her memoir The Princess Diarist.

Childish Gambino, the alter ego of actor Donald Glover, won his first ever Grammy for "Redbone" which was named best traditional R&B performance.
