Awards will be given for best new artist, record of the year, song of the year and album of the year, as well as myriad genre-specific categories.
More Life, which reached number one in the USA and number two in the United Kingdom album charts, was missed off the list after a source close to the nomination process said he did not submit the record for Album of the Year or Best Rap Album.
Best New Artist: Alessia Cara, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, Julia Michaels, SZA. Having two hip-hop albums nominated for the prestigious category is also a big deal. Thankfully absent from these main categories are two Grammys favorites: Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith.
Using the hashtag #OscarsBeSoWhite fans and celebrities alike took to Twitter to protest the fact that out of the 20 actors and actresses nominated in the lead and supporting categories for 2015 and 2016, none were non-white. And even that seems generous, given his laughable new album (but that's never stopped the Academy before).
The rapper is nominated for eight categories, including the most coveted ones - album, song, and record of the year, tying with Stevie Wonder to become the third most-nominated artist in Grammys history.
Bruno Mars also garnered big nods
You can see the full list of this year's Grammy nominees on the Grammy's website.
Among the nominees with Chicago ties, Lyric Opera music director Andrew Davis received a nod for best choral performance (Handel's "Messiah"), Justin Roberts received a nomination for best children's album ("Lemonade") and Austin-via-Chicago music writer Michael Corcoran was acknowledged for best album liner notes and best historical album ("Washington Phillips and his Manzarene Dreams").
For the first time in almost two decades, the Grammy Awards do not include any white men in its Album of the Year category. The biggest, and most surprising, snub is Jack Antonoff; despite his work with Lorde, Swift, Pink, and St. Vincent, the go-to mind for pop music this year didn't get a nod for Best Producer.
