The Watermelon Sugar hitmaker took home four awards, all the awards he received a nomination. His big win included the coveted Artist of the Year award.
Apart from that, Styles, 29, also took home three other gongs for Album of the Year for Harry’s House, Song of the Year for As It Was, and Pop/R&B Act during the show.
Fans went wild when Harry named every member of One Direction for their contribution to his success in one of his speeches.
The Story of My Life singer said,
‘I want to thank my family for being the most supportive, understanding family I could have ever asked for.’
‘I want to thank my mum for singing me up for X Factor, I wouldn’t be here without you.
‘I want to thank Niall [Horan], Louis [Tomlinson], Liam [Payne] and Zayn [Malik] because I wouldn’t be here without you either.’
One Direction fans went wild over the name-drop and took to social media to express their joy.

Harry faced backlash after his Grammys speech
One fan thanked Styles saying,
‘2023 harry acknowledging one direction is healing me’.
Styles also confessed that he is aware of how privileged he is to shut down online criticisms when he said ‘people like me‘ when he won big at the 2023 Grammy Awards which was held a few days ago.
This statement also drew him lots of negative attention mainly because people could not ignore all the privileges he has.
One Twitter user wrote,
”harry styles, a WHITE MAN, standing up on the grammy stage with the aoty award in his hands talking about “this doesn’t happen to people like me” is so sinister like sir??? i need you to be so fcking fr it only ever happens to “people like you”
Another one added,
”did harry styles just say “this doesn’t happen to people like me very often” when winning album of the year.. like you’re a straight cis white guy lol”
He went on to acknowledge many female artists who didn’t receive a nomination at the BRITS.
In his winning speech, he said,
‘I’m aware of my privilege up here tonight so this award is for Reyna, Florence [Welch], Mabel and Becky [Hill].’
