The 2019 Grammy nominees have been unveiled, and as always, there are plenty of surprises in the Big 4 categories and more than a few tight races that should prove almost impossible to call.
On Friday's (Dec. 7) CBS This Morning, 2018 best new artist winner Alessia Cara, Apple Music host Zane Lowe, Janelle Monae and Shawn Mendes announced select categories, with the full list being revealed shortly thereafter on Grammy.com. The announcement was pushed back from Dec. 5 due to President George H.W. Bush's funeral.
The two most-nominated people at the 61st annual Grammy Awards are both hip-hop. Kendrick Lamar leads with eight noms, and Drake follows with seven. Producer Boi-1da and Brandi Carlile earned six apiece, making Carlile the most nominated woman at the 2019 Grammys. Cardi B, Childish Gambino, H.E.R., Lady Gaga, Maren Morris, producer Sounwave and mastering engineer Mike Bozzi follow with five nods.
