Stockholm-based producer Max Martin's work with Katy Perry and Taylor Swift landed him the gong for best producer in a non-classical category.

The pop producer has had an impressive twenty year career, writing some of the biggest hits for artists like Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and many more.

Swedish mezzo soprano Ann Sofie von Otter and pianist Bengt Forsberg won an award for classical album category for their record 'Douce France'.

One of Sweden's most loved pop artists, Robyn, was nominated together with fellow Swedes Röyksopp and Little Dragon in the best dance/electronic music category, but lost out to Aphex Twin.

And Jonas Åkerlund, who was nominated for best musical film for his “Beyonce & Jay Z: On the run tour”, also went home empty handed. The director is known for his work with artists such as Madonna, U2 and Lady Gaga.
