Last year's Oscar winner for Best Documentary Feature, “20 Feet From Stardom,” has rounded out its long awards run beginning as a competition player way back at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival with a Grammy for Best Music Film.

The doc, which won countless other prizes from critics and festivals last year, zipped past the competition including “Beyoncé & Jay Z: On the Run Tour,” Coldplay's “Ghost Stories,” “Metallica Through the Never” and Pink's “The Truth About Love Tour: Live from Melbourne.” It was the only traditional feature documentary in the bunch so it's little surprise it stood out to voters.

As previously reported, movie crossover winners at the Grammys this year included “Frozen's” hit track “Let It Go” and compilation soundtrack album, Pharrell's “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2” for Best Music Video, Glen Campbell's “I'm Not Gonna Miss You” for Best Country Song as well as Alexandre Desplat (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”) and John Williams (“The Book Thief”) winning for their film composition work.

The Grammys will go on into the night. Keep track of who's winning what here.
