The 2014 ARIA Awards were held in Sydney on Nov. 26, 2014. The ceremony honored the brightest stars of the Australian music industry over the past year. Singer/Songwriter Sia stole the spotlight at the show by winning four ARIA Awards, including the top honor of the night: album of the year for “1000 Forms of Fear.” Read on to learn more about the winners.

Sia Furler was actually unable to attend the ceremony. It seemed like she hadn't even recorded video acceptance speeches.  The "Chandelier" singer  expressed her gratefulness in video messages posted on Twitter.

"I made four thank you/acceptance videos for the Arias. They chose to show one. I'm saddened to be getting shit for being Sia after getting the awards." said Sia.

Chet Faker aka Nicholas Murphy had received the maximum nods (nine) and won two awards last night for Best Male Artist and Best Independent Release. Other winners include Iggy Azalea, 5 Seconds of Summer and One Direction. Keep reading for the full list of winners at the 2014 ARIA Awards:
