The 2014 Grammy Award Nominations Are Out!

Jay Z Leads with 9 noms! Kendrick, JT & Pharrell follow up with 7!

The nominations for the 2014 Grammy Awards, due to be handed out on January 26, were announced last night at an event in Los Angeles, CA that featured live performances which followed the release of the long list of Grammy Award noms. Jay Z, who released his album Magna Carta over the summer, leads the pack of Grammy nominees with 9 noms. He is followed by Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell and Macklemore & Lewis who each scored 7 noms. Nine Inch Nails managed to nab a nomination for Best Alternative Album and Miley Cyrus got nominated for nothing. As you may know, the music academy hands out a LOT of awards each year, click below to read the LONG list of nominees to find out who else will be vying for the next crop of Grammy Awards.

Nominations for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards were announced Friday (Dec. 6), with select categories getting a primetime rollout during the “Grammy Nominations Concert Live!!” special on CBS. In terms of sheer numbers, Jay Z leads all with nine total nominations including best rap album; Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Justin Timberlake, and Pharrell Williams each garner seven nods; Drake and engineer Bob Ludwig are up for five awards apiece. Macklemore/Lewis and Lamar will square off in two of the night’s biggest prizes: album of the year and best new artist — a category that also includes James Blake, Kacey Musgraves and Ed Sheeran.

A few things struck me when the nominations were announced … first, Justin Timberlake — with all of his 7 noms — failed to secure a single nomination for the biggest awards … namely Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Secondly, HOLY SHIZZ Sara Bareilles got nominated for Album of the Year for her album The Blessed Unrest. I love the album … I LOVE Sara … and I figured she’d get nominated for something (Best Female Pop Vocal Traditional something or other) but I never dreamed she would manage to nab a nom for one of the biggest awards of the night! She’ll be going up against Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Daft Punk and Mackelmore & Lewis. Wow! She’s my pick for Album of the Year, for sure. Third, for all the buzz generated by newcomer Lorde, she failed to get nominated for Best New Artist. HMMM. As for the rest of the noms, well, you can read thru the massive list below.

  1. Lauren xx

    Judging by what and who JT is up against, I would not be surprised if he didn’t win anything. 2013 was a FANTASTIC year for popular music, for Lorde and Robin Thicke especially.

    I do think Wrecking Ball should have had a nod. Despite the video, it’s a fantastic song and you can tell Miley put her heart into it.

    • OG Emily

      It’s no secret I LOATHE JT and I would squeal to see his overinflated ego take a hit by not winning anything. Not holding my breath tho. Lorde deserves to win all. I would LOVE to see her pull some upsets.

  2. JT not getting a nom for album of the year? umm..ok. and im pretty shocked Miley didnt get a nom for ‘Wrecking Ball’ ..say what you will about her..but that song was/is anywhere and everywhere. it may not have won, but the song deserved at least a nom.

  3. Alecia

    I feel like this is one time I’d like Kanye to go on a rant for me. I can’t right now.

  4. OG Emily

    What’s up with Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl getting credit for a Jay-Z song (Holy Grail)? We’re they sampled in it?

    Shocked and thrilled Miley wasn’t nominated. That kind of ish doesn’t need to get rewarded.

    I’d actually like to see Macklemore & Ryan Lewis take home awards … Excellent music and genuinely good guys.

    • @OG Emily — Holy Grail has a sample of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ by Nirvana

    • OG Emily

      No kidding, that’s awesome! I stayed away from that song b/c JT is in it and he ruins everything for me. My extreme love for Nirvana now makes me want to listen for the sample and stop when I hear JT’s voice. Damnit, JT!

    • Joanna

      Yes, Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl were credited in Holy Grail. Jay-Z sampled “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in the first verse of the song. He even asked Courtney Love for permission to use the lyrics.

      As for the nominations as a whole, I was kind of surprised that there were no artists of an older generation (i.e. iconic) nominated in any of the really big categories. The nominees seemed to me to mostly be current artists. It seems like the same crop of artists that were nominated for the AMA’s and the VMA’s this year. On the subject of Justin Timberlake, I really had hoped he would be nominated for at least two of the big awards. His song “Mirrors” was the best song he put out this year and it deserved to be nominated for either “Song of the Year” or “Record of the Year” and his album for “Album of the Year.” I am pretty happy with the rest of the nominees though. Trent, I do have to agree that Lorde should have been nominated (and in my opinion won) for Best New Artist. Should be an interesting show. Can’t wait to hear who the performers will be. I hope they will be good and maybe Miley free?!?!

  5. If Sarah Bareilles wins best album my faith in humanity may be restored. MOST.UNDERRATED.ARTIST.EVER!!!!!
