. - t. V Bee Gees, Billy Joel Big Grammy ANGELES (UPD-The " V ' f ' ' immw .i-f.,' LOS ANGELES (UPD-The Bee Gees and Billy Joel were the big winners at the annual Grammy awards for pop record makers Thursday night, and tormer president Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley were amdng the losers. The Bee Gees, whose disco-beat songs dominated the pop music year, won four of the six Grammys they were nominated for, but lost out to Billy Joel and "Just the Way You Are" for the top awards, record and song of the year. Barry Manilow won the best male pop singing Grammy for "Copacabana" and Anne Mur-' ray won in the women's category with "You Needed Me." Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Dolly Partem took the top awards in the country class of the 52 Grammys handed out by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. The Bee Gees brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb. -1 won the Grammy for album of the year with "Saturday Night Fever," the largest selling soundtrack album in history with 15 million sold, which was also cited for best pop performance by a group. The Bee Gees were named producers of the year and their "Stayin' Alive" won for best vocal arrangement. Nixon, who was the second former president to be nomi-' nated for a Grammy the Harry Truman tapes were nominated last year became the second to lose. The recording of Nixon's televised interviews with David Frost was defeated in the spoken word category by . Orson Welles' soundtrack from the movie "Citizen Kane." Presley, who won three Grammys in the gospel category before his death and was nominated for a posthumously released recording; "Softly as I Leave You," lost out in the country male singer class to Nelson's reworking of the 1940s hit "Georgia on My Mind." "Fantastic,. I think it's fantastic," Maurice Gibb told reporters backstage. Phil Ramone, who produced Joel's hit, said it was a "total shock" that Joel, who is in Europe and did not attend the show, won the two big awards. "I figured it was a Bee Gees' year," he said. "I think it's terrific that he's being recognized after so many years." Manilow said he was also surprised at his award because "Copacabana wasn't made to be a hit record. I thought it was a novelty tune."
