Women Dominate the 2024 GRAMMY Nominations!

The nominations for the 2024 GRAMMYs are out, and women are once again dominating the industry!

SZA has scored the most nominations – nine in total – for her album SOS and her genre-blending songs which are cover the rap, R&B and pop categories. She’s also up for Album of the Year and Song of the Year for “Kill Bill”.

Victoria Monét and Phoebe Bridgers are up for seven awards, whilst Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, Brandy Clark, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift have been nominated for six each.

And speaking of Taylor, there’s always a record to be broken when she is involved – this year is no different! The superstar’s “Anti-Hero” has been nominated for Song of the Year, making Taylor the first songwriter to score seven nominations in the category – overtaking the legendary Lionel Richie and Sir Paul McCartney who each have six. (Fun fact, she has a whopping 52 GRAMMY nominations to her name and has won 12 times!)

Also breaking a record this year is Victoria Monét’s 2-year-old daughter Hazel, who is now the youngest person in GRAMMYs history to be nominated for an award. She’s featured on her mum’s song “Hollywood” which is up for Best Traditional R&B song. The record was previously held by Leah Peasall of the Peasall Sisters who was nominated at age 8.

Continuing with the theme of women absolutely dominating the awards (*insert loud cheering*), Greta Gerwig’s Barbie film has scored 11 nominations across seven categories including Record and Song of the Year for Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” as well as Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night”.

As Miley posted on X (formerly Twitter) after learning of her nominations, “watching women win & rule the music industry makes me proud.”

Same Miley, same!

Meanwhile, Ryan Gosling scored his first ever GRAMMY nomination too for “I’m Just Ken” in the category Best Song for Visual Media, which is dominated by his fellow female Barbie artists, Ice Spice, Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa. The only non-Barbie nominee is Rihanna, for her song “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther.

Jon Batiste leads the male musicians with six nominations, including Album of the Year. Troye Sivan, Calvin Harris, Foofighters, Metallica and Babyface are also among the nominees.

The winners will be announced at the ceremony on February 4, 2024. You can check out the full list of nominees here.
