Taylor Swift Subtly Thanked Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, And Joe Alwyn In Her Grammy Speech Via A "Folklore" Easter Egg

"I want to thank James, Ines, and Betty."

Taylor Swift just won the Grammy for Album of the Year!

Because Taylor's released so much incredible music recently, I feel like I should specify that this was for Folklore.

Well, in her acceptance speech, Taylor thanked some very familiar names — and it appears someone has started to chop onions in my immediate vicinity.

It's late and I've been inside for a long time!!!

For one, Taylor thanked her boyfriend Joe Alwyn, who she said "is the first person that I play every single song that I write."

"I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine."

If you're like, "What's Joe got to do with Taylor's music?" then no worries — he's listed as a cowriter on "Betty" and "Exile" under a pseudonym.

But the Folklore Easter eggs didn't stop there! Taylor then said, "I want to thank James, Ines, and Betty, and their parents, who are the second and third people that I play every new song I write."

AND WHOMST MIGHT THAT GROUP BE? Glad you asked! Well, the names of the characters in the Folklore love triangle...

...But also Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and their children!

Which means Blake and Ryan are numbers 2 and 3 for all new Taylor music!

They must have heard a *lot* this past year.

Congrats again to Taylor!!
