At the 60th Annual Grammy Awards of 2017, there was a draw for the winner of the best album pack. Art directors Sasha Barr, Ed Steed and Josh Tillman won the award with the indie-rock artist Father John Misty for his album Pure Comedy (Deluxe) with Carlos Dussán , Juliana Jaramillo, Juan Felipe Martínez and Claudio Roncoli, the artistic directors work with the Colombian musician Magín Díaz in his album El Orisha de la Rosa .
While one of the most complicated award structures, the winners of the best album package are awarded to the accredited art director for the album in package categories, such as Billboard confirmed with The Recording Academy. The artist is not appointed unless they are also accredited as arts director. In the case of Father John Misty's page on Grammy.com, he is listed among his three nominations as a one-time winner for the best album package, since Tillman is the legal name of Father John Misty. Meanwhile, Magín Díaz is not listed as a Grammy.com winner, but HuskyFox now has an official Grammy.com nomination page.
