Lamar leads Grammy noms, where women make a comeback

(Keep in mind that the eligibility period for submissions was October 1, 2017-September 30, 2018.) This year, Cardi B is holding it down in five categories while Kendrick Lamar reigns supreme with eight nominations followed by Drake with seven to his name. The DAMN. rapper is up for eight awards: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Rap Performance ("King's Dead"), two for Best Rap Song ("King's Dead" and "WIN"), and Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Song Written for Visual Media. While the duo did secure three nominations including, Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best R&B Performance, and Best Music Video for "APESHIT", folks are big mad that they were not nominated in some of the major categories, specifically Album Of The Year.

The move did appear to have a positive effect for female artists, with five of the Album of the Year nominees going to women: Cardi B, Carlile, R&B singer Janelle Monae, R&B prodigy H.E.R. and country songstress Kacey Musgraves. Fellow Black Panther song "King's Dead" was nominated for Best Rap Performance and Rap Song.

Women performers also made their mark in the top categories after being largely snubbed a year ago, with rapper Cardi B, pop diva Lady Gaga and folk-rock singer Brandi Carlile all nabbing key nominations for music's top awards. Lamar was nominated for the Black Panther album compilation he executive produced for the blockbuster film.

Lamar led the way with eight overall nominations, Drake had seven, and Carlile and producer Boi-1DA (who has worked with Drake and Cardi B) garnered six each. Cardi is the only woman nominated in the rap categories, with social media now adding more fuel to the fire surrounding the highly publicized feud between her and Nicki Minaj.

But last year's Grammy snub of bilingual mega-hit "Despacito" in the Record of the Year and Song of the Year categories has critics skeptical that a non-English track, no matter how popular, can score a major award. The nomination kept rock artists from being completely shut out in the major categories.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar leads Grammy award nominations with 8 nods, Drake has 7

Beyonce and Jay-Z, billed as The Carters, as well Ariana Grande, didn't earn any of the big nominations.

Demi Lovato, who relapsed after six years of sobriety and was hospitalized for an overdose in July, earned a nomination for best pop duo/group performance for "Fall In Line", her duet with Christina Aguilera. J. Cole - "Pretty Little Fears" Childish Gambino - "This Is America" Kendrick Lamar & SZA - "All the Stars" Post Malone ft.

In the Best Jazz Instrumental Album category, Wayne Shorter received his 21st Grammy nomination, for Emanon. His album "Ye" did not receive any nods.

Other famous faces outside of music to earn nominations include Tiffany Haddish and former USA president Jimmy Carter, both up for best spoken word album.
