Elsewhere, Taylor was named the winner of the Best Artist category, the Best Pop prize, while she was also nominated in the Biggest Fans section, which was won by BTS.

Accepting the first award from John Lennon’s son and singer Julian, who presented the prize, she said: ‘It’s so good to be back at the EMAs. You all look very beautiful tonight.’

The singer-songwriter continued: ‘I have been writing and directing my music video for a long time but this was the first short film I have made and I felt like I learned so much about myself of how making film can be a natural extension of my storytelling just like songwriting.’

Hitmakers: DJ David Guetta and singer Bebe Rexha came out on top in the Best Collaboration for their hit I'm Good (Blue)
