More Awards, More Nominations: The Grammys Announce Their List for 2015 [UPDATED]

A look at the mainstream choices of the year in music.

The Academy Of Recording Arts And Sciences are making a whole morning event to announce their list of nominations for their 57th annual awards show, the Grammys. They announced the first four categories on CBS and then slowly revealed the majority of their categories on Twitter between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. EST. If you didn’t have time to watch their Twitter feed for three hours because you have a life, you can quickly scroll down this list to see the major categories and then some.

You might notice that Album of the Year (the “big one” to people who love the Grammys) is still not available, that’s because in a horrible brilliant marketing ploy, the Academy won’t be announcing that until A Very Grammy Christmas airs tonight on CBS.

The 57th Annual GrammyAwards will air on February 8, 2015 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.

Updated December 5, 7 p.m. PST: Thanks to A Very GRAMMY Christmas, some artists like Beck and Beyoncé had their presents come early with Album of the Year noms.
