(CNN) — Taylor Swift is one of music’s biggest and best-selling artists, but she can’t claim to be one of this year’s Academy of Country Music Award winners.

And some on Twitter couldn’t be happier.

As Miranda Lambert won four awards and Luke Bryan nabbed the fan-voted Entertainer of the Year honor over Swift, who’s won it twice before, the 23-year-old singer went home empty-handed.

Viewers online didn’t hold back:

“I know why Taylor Swift is at the ACM’s. she’s there so she can learn what real country music is,” said one observer. Agreed another, “I’m Not Sure If I’m Happier That Luke Bryan Won … Or That Taylor Swift Didn’t #GetOutOfCountry.”

That Twitter user wasn’t alone in feeling joy at the Swift shut-out during the ceremony. “I am so happy Taylor Swift didn’t get anything this year,” said Your Southern Darlin.

“Dear God, someone hand Taylor Swift a random award before she writes an album detailing her breakup with the Academy of Country Music,” said Nascarscasm.

At least everyone loved her dress.
