David Bowie isn't up for any of the three top awards at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, but the late music legend cleaned up Sunday, going five-for-five for his final album Blackstar.

Bowie, who died in January 2016, won every category he in which he was nominated: Best Rock Performance, Best Alternative Music Album, Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical and Best Recording Package and Best Rock Song (for "Blackstar"). The first four awards were given out during the pre-show, with the final one handed out during the main ceremony.
