2014 Grammy Production Award winners

Music’s Biggest Night returned to the Staples Center in Los Angeles last weekend. Watched these days as much for the spectacle and unique musical pairings as for the awards themselves, the 56th Annual Grammy Awards balanced the old and the new, featuring everyone from Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to Daft Punk and Kendrick Lamar.

In terms of awards given to or shared with production pros, it was a big night for French dance duo Daft Punk and their raft of producers and engineers, as their first studio album in a decade, Random Access Memories, took home the album of the year and best engineered album, while their single, "Get Lucky," was garnered record of the year. The album and single also earned best dance/electronica album and best pop duo/group performance, respectively.
