Taylor Swift won all six of the categories she was nominated for at the 2022 American Music Awards on Sunday.

The Shake It Off singer took home the night's biggest honour, Artist of the Year, as well as Favorite Female Pop Artist and Favorite Female Country Artist.

Her re-recording of 2012's Red, Red (Taylor's Version), won the Favorite Country Album and Favorite Pop Album prizes, while All Too Well: The Short Film won the Favorite Music Video award.

In her acceptance speech for the Favorite Pop Album accolade, she said, "This album is a re-recorded album, and I cannot tell you how much my re-recorded albums mean to me. I never expected or assumed they would mean anything to you, so I can't thank you enough for caring about this album that I'm so proud of."

The 2021 re-release of Red featured previously unheard songs, re-recorded vocals and tweaks to the musical arrangements, prompting award ceremonies to consider it on its own.

Other big AMAs winners included Beyoncé, who won Favorite Female R&B Artist and Favorite R&B Album for Renaissance; Kendrick Lamar, who was named Favorite Male Hip-Hop Artist and won Favorite Hip-Hop Album for Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers; and Harry Styles, who was crowned Favorite Male Pop Artist and won Favorite Pop Song for As It Was.
