French electronic duo Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” was named album of the year and its romantically frisky hit single “Get Lucky” with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers won for record of the year Sunday to cap the 56th Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy voters singling out the twosome for four awards over the course of a long but visually and musically dazzling ceremony.

Two-time Grammy winner Paul Williams, the veteran songwriter who was one of the collaborators on the album, delivered the acceptance speech for theatrically silent musicians Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, saying, “Back when I was drinking and using, I used to imagine things that weren’t there … and then I got sober and two robots called me and asked me to make an album.”

Williams also said the duo expressed their pleasure at the onstage marriage of 33 couples, including several same-sex partners, to the music of hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ gay-rights anthem “Same Love.” “All that love is fantastic,” he said on their behalf.
