Grammy Awards Nominations 2022: The complete list


    It’s that time of year again: bust out your best tuxedo, shine up your best pair of shoes, and get ready to question what the definition of “progressive R&B” is because it’s Grammy Nomination time!

    This year’s slate of nominees is a fascinating amalgam of upstarts, established names, and strange success. Take, for instance, the recognition given to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert bandleader Jon Batiste, who notched an impressive 11 nominations, including some nods in the high profile categories like ‘Record of the Year’ and ‘Album of the Year’.

    Another clear winner out of this field is Olivia Rodrigo, who snagged seven nominations including some for ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Best New Artist’ (the latter category is historically cursed, Olivia, so be wary and rent out Billie Eilish’s witch doctor for the night). Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, and perennial Grammy favourite H.E.R. all landed eight nominees each, while Eilish is the only challenger to Rodrigo’s seven noms.

    Kanye West also nabbed a surprise nomination for Donda on ‘Album of the Year’. If we’re talking the biggest narrative behind an album then Kanye easily takes the prize, but the middling reviews probably won’t do much to help the chances of Donda. Still, Drake didn’t get a nomination for Certified Lover Boy, so let the feud reignite!

    There’s only one other award nomination that caught my eye: Louis C.K. got a nod in ‘Best Comedy Album’ for his return to the stage in Sincerely Louis C.K. Apparently, the Grammys are subscribing to the Louis C.K. comeback train, so it will be interesting to see if they give the controversial stand-up an award.

    If you want to check out the official list of all the nominees, check out the link here.
