Jay-Z, Lamar, hip-hop dominate Grammy nominations, but can they win?

With those three worthy artists appearing multiple times in major categories, the Academy is showing a rare embrace of diverse genres and quality.

Which is why it's incredibly important that, this year, the Grammy's Album of the Year category includes zero white dude artists (aside from a few producers in the background like Jack Antonoff, for example.) Lorde is the only white artist in the category of four other performers: Jay-Z, Bruno Mars, Childish Gambino, and Kendrick Lamar. Jay will also go head-to-head with Mars for Song of the Year. Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber, it actually seems possible that Lamar can finally take home the major award he's deserved for years. Lady Antebellum's Heart Break is up for Best Country Album and their "You Look Good" earned a nod in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category, while newcomers Midland earned two nods as well, with their breakout hit, "Drinkin' Problem" up for both Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance.

Best New Artist: Alessia Cara, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, Julia Michaels, SZA. Despite having been nominated for 11 Grammys and winning two, Ed Sheeran only appears in the Best Pop Solo Performance category for "Shape Of You". The album debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and all 14 songs charted. This year's show will be the first to be held in NY in the past 15 years. Her hit song, "Bodak Yellow", earned nominations for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance.

Meanwhile this year, Jay-Z is the leader of the pack, as he gained the most nominations for the 2018 Grammys.

After the full list of Grammy nominations were published, people had a lot of questions, namely: Just where, exactly, is Drake's nomination? But don't put it past the Academy to award popularity as always and give it all to "Despacito" and Bruno Mars.
