Complete List of Grammy Awards 2021 Nominations

On November 24, 2020, the Recording Academy announced the complete list of nominees for its annual Grammy Awards 2021. In an hour-long livestream, the nominations for the 63rd Grammys were announced across 83 categories.

The 2021 Grammy Awards ceremony goes down in history for having every nominee for Best Rock Performance and Best Country Album a woman or a group fronted by a woman so far. The nominations are also dominated by female artists across many different categories.

Beyoncé leads the pack this year with nine nominations, followed by Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch, and Taylor Swift, with six nominations each. Brittany Howard follows with five nominations, with Megan Thee Stallion, Billie Eilish, DaBaby, Phoebe Bridgers, Justin Bieber, John Beasley, and David Frost all tied with four nominations.

Beyonce is the most Grammy-nominated female artist in the history of the award ceremony and tied with Paul McCartney at second place for most nominated artists of all time. However, Jay-Z leads the all-time nominations chart with 80, who also has three nominations in 2021.

Two of the noteable snubs of this year’s nominations would be The Weeknd’s ‘After Hours’ album, and Cardi B and her mega-hit “WAP” receiving zero nominations.
