Joe Alwyn has a surprising piece of hardware coming his way according to the Grammy website.

Eagle eyed Taylor Swift fans noticed that Joe's name has been added to the Folklore win page for Album of the Year as a producer. During the award show, only Jack Antonoff, Aaron Dessner and Taylor Swift were listed as winners.

The actor worked on the album as a songwriter and Taylor pointed that he was involved with the process including coming up with some of the original songs all by himself before Taylor was even involved.

"There’s been a lot of discussion about William Bowery and his identity because it’s not a real person. So, William Bowery is Joe [Alwyn], as we know," she said in the Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions documentary. "Joe plays piano beautifully and he's always just playing and making things up and kind of creating things. And "Exile" was crazy 'cause Joe had written that entire piano part and it was singing the Bon Iver part. He was just signing it the way that the whole first verse is. And so, I was entranced and asked if we could keep writing that one."

There's no word on exactly why Joe is suddenly added to the list, but it does make sense considering he worked on a big part of the album. Joe hasn't talked publicly about working on Folklore, but at least he can add this brand new award on his mantle.

Congrats, Joe! Maybe this is his first step to an EGOT? We sure hope so!
