The nominations for the 2019 Grammy Awards were announced on Friday, December 7, and the artists honored in the major categories include Cardi B, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga. But surprisingly, some of the biggest and most talented names in music were snubbed.
2018年12月7日，第61届格莱美提名揭晓，入围四大通类奖项的艺术家包括Cardi B、Drake、Kendrick Lamar和LadyGaga。但令人惊讶的是，一些最伟大和最有才华的歌手却被冷落了。
Below, Us Weekly breaks down five of the Recording Academy’s eyebrow-raising decisions.
The pop star, 25, scored two nominations (Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener and Best Pop Solo Performance for “God Is a Woman“), but she came up empty-handed in the top categories. Sweetener has been dominating streaming platforms since its August release, and many critics predicted that it would be recognized in the Album of the Year category. Grande’s hit single “No Tears Left to Cry“ also went completely unnoticed. Her latest, “Thank U, Next,“ didn’t score any nods either, but that’s because it dropped after the eligibility period.
这位25岁的流行歌星获得了两项提名(凭借《Sweetener》入围最佳流行演唱专辑和凭借《God Is a Woman》入围最佳流行歌手)，但她却能没入围通类奖。《Sweetener》自8月份发布以来，一直占据着主流媒体平台的主导地位，许多评论家也预测，它将在会被选为年度专辑。A妹的主打单曲《No Tears Left to Cry》也完全没入围任何奖项提名。最新单曲《Thank U, Next》也没有，不过那是因为已经过了评选期。
With 31 past Grammy nominations and 10 wins under her belt, the country-turned-pop superstar, 28, was surprisingly overlooked this year. Reputation received a nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album, but that’s it. Sure, the record wasn’t as acclaimed as Red and 1989, but at least one of its singles (Remember “Look What You Made Me Do“ and “Delicate,“ anyone?) should have been nominated.
凭借着31项格莱美提名和10项大奖，28岁的霉霉在由乡村音乐歌手成功转型成流行乐巨星后，在今年的格莱美提名揭晓中出人意料地被忽视了。她的《Reputation》成功入围最佳流行演唱专辑 ，不过也就只有这个了。好吧，跟《Red and 1989》相比，这张专辑确实没那么惊艳，但是里面至少要有一张单曲入围其他奖项吧（大家还记得《Look What You Made Me Do》和《Delicate》吧？）
The hip-hop legend, 35, unleashed some of her fiercest tracks to date on her album Queen, but she was completely shut out of the list of nominees. Meanwhile, her rival Cardi, 26, landed five nods, including Album of the Year for Invasion of Privacy and Record of the Year for “I Like It.“ Ouch.
The rapper, 26, released the bestselling album of his career yet and even admitted that he had the Grammys in mind when he recorded it. Despite hit collaborations with Drake and John Mayer, Astroworld did not earn any major nominations.
