Snubs and Surprises in the 2024 Grammy Nominations

The Grammys wouldn’t be the Grammys without snubs and surprises, and there were plenty of both this year.

There were also, of course, things that went exactly as expected. No one will be surprised that Taylor Swift is nominated for album, record and song of the year for the third time in her career, or that SZA and Olivia Rodrigo also show up in all three of those categories. (So do Miley Cyrus and Jon Batiste, though those outcomes were less assured.)

In addition to those five artists who are nominated in each of the Big Three categories, three other artists – Boygenius, Billie Eilish and Lana Del Rey – are nominated in two of the Big Three categories.


Solo women account for six of the eight nominations for both record and album of the year. A trio of three women (Boygenius) and one man (Batiste) round out the nominations in both of those categories. There’s more balance in best new artist, but women are still ahead. The category has four women, three men and one married couple (The War and Treaty).

This year’s eligibility period ran from Oct. 1, 2022, through Sept. 15, 2023. The final round of Grammy voting, which will determine the winners, will take place Dec. 14 through Jan. 4, 2024. The Grammys will be presented on Feb. 4, 2024, at Arena in Los Angeles. Prior to the three-and-a-half-hour telecast, the Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony will be held at the adjoining Peacock Theater and will be streamed live on and the Recording Academy’s YouTube Channel.

Here are the biggest snubs and surprises in the 2024 Grammy nominations.
