The Recording Academy announced nominations for the upcoming 66th Grammy Awards on Friday (Nov. 10), and Billboard wants to know who you think should have gotten a nomination in the Big Four categories of best new artist, and album, record and song of the year.
SZA leads with nine nods, including in the categories of album, record and song of the year. The “Snooze” singer is one of five nominees contending in those Big Three general field performance categories — the four other artists are Taylor Swift, Jon Batiste, Miley Cyrus and Olivia Rodrigo.
Morgan Wallen, despite scoring the biggest song (“Last Night”) and album (One Thing at a Time) of the year with 16 weeks each on the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200, received zero nominations, leaving him without a nod for yet another year. Also in the country genre, Luke Combs‘ monster hit “Fast Car” — which topped the Hot 100 for two weeks and won him single of the year at the 2023 CMA Awards — went unrecognized in the general field.
History-making Latin star Karol G was also ignored in the Big Four despite having the first all-Spanish-language album by a woman to top the Billboard 200 with her Mañana Será Bonito release, which did snag a best música Mexicana album nomination. Also on the Latin music front, Peso Pluma was passed over in the best new artist category despite picking up a nod also in the best música Mexicana album (including Tejano) for his Génesis album.
Also without any noms are the solo members of BTS who released music this year. Jimin’s “Like Crazy” and Jung Kook’s “Seven” featuring Latto were eligible for record of the year, but did not receive nods.
So, who do you think deserved a nomination in the Big Four categories but didn’t get one? Vote in our poll below!
