Grammy Award Winners 1959 - The 1st
The Grammy Awards were created to recognise achievement in the music industry.
They began as part of the Hollywood Walk of Fame project whereby recording executives on the committee for awarding musicians, a walk of fame star on the Boulevard, realised people in the industry deserved accolade. So the National Academy of Recording Art and Sciences was created and the Gramophone Awards began.
The 1st ceremony took place in The Beverly Hilton Hotel
Hosted by Mort Sahi
Record of the Year was Nel Blu Dipinot di Blu by Domenico Modugno
