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

The 61st Grammys are upon us. Well, almost. First up: nominations!

This year’s batch leans heavily toward music-made-for-movies, with Kendrick Lamar nabbing the most nods at eight for his work on Black Panther: The Album. Lady Gaga scored five, four from her work on A Star Is Born turn and a tip to a song from her album Joanne. Elsewhere, Drake came in with the second most nominations at seven. Rapper (and recent EW cover star) Cardi B was nominated five times, including for Album of the Year and Record of the Year. Speaking of AOTY, out of 2019’s eight nominees (that category, along with Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist increased the number of entries by three this year) there are five women — a major step up from last year’s #GrammysSoMale debacle.

One notable snub: Taylor Swift’s Reputation, which ended up with a single nod in the Pop Vocal Album category. Though the album was released 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 live Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019 on CBS at 8p.m. ET/5p.m. PT.
