The nominations for the 2019 Grammys were officially released Friday morning, and with the news comes both snubs and surprises.
Rappers Drake and Kendrick Lamar lead this year’s nominations in the biggest four categories, which generally refer to record of the year, song of the year, album of the year and best new artist. Lamar received eight nominations, while Drake received seven.
As the New York Times notes, women also lead in some of the biggest categories this year; the awards show received criticism for a lack of diversity in the past.
But the nominations also resulted in snubs for some of the music industry’s biggest stars, such as Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake, among others.
Check out some of the biggest snubs and surprises from the 2019 Grammys nominations ahead of the show on Feb. 10, which you can catch live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
Pop star Justin Timberlake — who is no stranger to Grammys nominations and wins — received just one nomination in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category for his song “Say Something” with Chris Stapleton. It was the only nomination Timberlake received this year in relation to his album “Man of the Woods”, which was released in February.
