Grammy nominations 2019: Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Lady Gaga dominate

The 61st Grammys are upon us. Properly, virtually. First up: nominations!

This yr’s batch leans closely towards music-made-for-movies, with Kendrick Lamar nabbing probably the most nods at eight for his work on Black Panther: The Album. Lady Gaga scored 5, 4 from her work on A Star Is Born flip and a tip to a music from her album Joanne. Elsewhere, Drake got here in with the second most nominations at seven. Rapper (and up to date EW cowl star) Cardi B was nominated 5 occasions, together with for Album of the Yr and Document of the Yr. Talking of AOTY, out of 2019’s eight nominees (that class, together with Music of the Yr, Report of the Yr, and Greatest New Artist elevated the variety of entries by three this yr) there are 5 ladies — a serious step up from final yr’s #GrammysSoMale debacle.

One notable snub: Taylor Swift’s Status, which ended up with a single nod within the Pop Vocal Album class. Although the album was launched in 2017, it missed the cutoff for eligibility for the 2018 ceremony. (The window for the 2019 awards was Oct. 1, 2017 to Sept. 30, 2018)

The 61st annual Grammys will air stay Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019 on CBS at 8p.m. ET/5p.m. PT.
