Daft Punk

USA Today:

Daft Punk didn't have to stay up all night to get lucky.

The helmet-clad French pop duo swept the five categories it was in Sunday night at the 56th annual Grammys. Their album Random Access Memories picked up three honors, for album of the year, best dance/electronica album and engineered album, and their single with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, Get Lucky, was named record of the year and best pop duo/group performance.

"On the behalf of the robots, I'd just like to say, man, thank you," Williams said, accepting for the silent Daft Punk twosome and drawing a laugh from the crowd when mentioning they wanted to thank their families.

"Honestly, I bet France is really proud of these guys right now," Williams said later in the night, accepting the award for record of the year.

After their album-of-the-year win, Daft Punk collaborator and songwriter Paul Williams joked that "back when I was drinking, I would imagine things that weren't there and I'd get frightened. Then I got sober and two robots called and asked me to make an album."
