Olivia Rodrigo stands out at 2024’s upcoming Grammy Awards, with six major nominations in the categories of Record of the Year (Vampire), Album of the Year (GUTS), Song of the Year (Vampire), Best Pop Solo Performance (Vampire), Best Pop Vocal Album (GUTS), and Best Rock Song (Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl).

In the highly-anticipated lineup for the 66th annual Grammy Awards, SZA takes center stage with a staggering nine nominations, firmly establishing herself as the leading nominee. Among the heavy hitters vying for recognition in the upcoming awards show are Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, Boygenius, Miley Cyrus, Jon Batiste, Victoria Monét, and Billie Eilish — all of whom are poised to challenge SZA in the fiercely contested Record of the Year category.

The battleground for Album of the Year features a dynamic mix of contenders, including familiar faces like SZA’s SOS, Swift’s Midnights, Rodrigo’s GUTS, Boygenius’ The Record, Cyrus’ Endless Summer Vacation, Batiste’s World Music Radio, and the distinctive artistry of Lana Del Rey’s Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd. and Janelle Monae’s The Age Of Pleasure.

With SZA’s dominant presence of nine nominations, the runners-up include Monét, Phoebe Bridgers, and mixing maestro Serban Ghenea, each securing seven nominations. Notably, a group of eight musicians, including the likes of Jack Antonoff, Batiste, Boygenius, Brandy Clark, Cyrus, Eilish, Rodrigo, and Swift, share the spotlight with six nominations each, showcasing the depth and diversity of this year’s Grammy contenders.

Taylor Swift, a staple in the Grammy arena, is on the brink of making history by potentially becoming the all-time leader in album of the year wins if her album Midnights claims victory in February. This would mark her fourth win, surpassing the current record shared by Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and Paul Simon, each with three album wins. Swift has already etched her name in the annals of history with seven Song of the Year nominations –– a feat unmatched by any predecessor.

The cinematic juggernaut Barbie secures a prominent spot with 12 Grammy nominations, including 11 for the soundtrack album or its songs, and an additional nod for the Mark Ronson/Andrew Wyatt instrumental score. Billie Eilish’s What Was I Made For? commands attention with five nominations, spanning crucial categories like record of the year, song of the year, pop solo performance, music video, and song written for visual media. Dua Lipa’s Dance the Night also clinches a coveted nomination for song of the year. The songs written for the visual media category became a showcase dominated by Barbie, featuring Eilish and Lipa’s contributions.

Despite ruling the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 charts, Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time album and Last Night single received a more muted acknowledgment from the Grammys. Wallen is notably absent from the nominations, with the sole recognition for his work going to the three writers behind Last Night, nominated for best country song. The most surprising aspect of this year’s Grammy’s narrative is the welcome appreciation for Victoria Monét — who secured an impressive amount of seven nominations in a revelation that caught forecasters off guard.

The eagerly awaited awards ceremony is slated to happen on February 4, 2024 at the Crytpo Arena, via a live broadcast on CBS Television. To check the full list of nominations, read below.
