The 1975, DJ Calvin Harris and singer-songwriter Dua Lipa won major prizes at the U.K. music industry’s Brit Awards on Wednesday (February 20, 2019).

1975 was named best British group and also took British album of the year for A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.

Harris was named producer of the year, while his U.K. chart-topping collaboration with Lipa, “One Kiss,” was declared best British single.

When the 1975 accepted the award for Best British Group, frontman Matty Healy called out “male misogynist acts” by quoting a 2015 essay written by UK music journalist Laura Snapes, which in turn was quoted in a more recent article about the allegations against Ryan Adams.

“I just want you to listen to me for one sec,” Healy said, “Just a couple of sentences that a friend of ours, Laura Snapes, said this, and I thought we should all really think about it.” He then read the below quote:

Male misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of ‘difficult’ artists, [while] women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don’t understand art.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z sort of attend the Brits with a pre-recorded acceptance speech for the Best International Group category for their team-up The Carters. They stood in front of a portrait of Meghan Markle.
