Taika Waititi wins Grammy for JoJo Rabbit

Taika Waititi has won a Grammy award for the soundtrack of Jojo Rabbit and accepted the award in his trademark self-deprecating style. 

The Māori filmmaker took out the prize for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for Visual Media, accepting the trophy over video call. 

"I guess they're just giving Grammys to anyone now... I'll take it! Thank you!" he said during the ceremony. 

"Thank you very much for this honour," he added. 

"What can I say? It was so long ago, I can barely remember anything about making that movie, but it seems like it's never going to go away, and I'm happy with that." 

Waititi also reacted to the win on Twitter with a simple "Lol wtfffff". 

"I am happy today," he added in another tweet. 

Last year, Waititi won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit, where his acceptance speech was markedly less comedic and more emotional. 

"I dedicate this to all those indigenous kids in the world who want to do art and write stories. We are the original storytellers and we can make it too. Thank you," he said at the time, appearing to fight back tears. 

Waititi is currently working on the next Thor film, Love and Thunder, which has begun filming.
