Grammy Nominations: Song of the Year Comprises Lady Gaga, Drake, Childish Gambino, Maren Morris, Cardi B, Brandi Carlisle


Grammy nominations this morning did a lot for Lady Gaga and “A Star is Born.” Her hit single “Shallow” sung with Bradley Cooper was nominated for Best Song and Best Record. The Grammys air February 10th before Oscar voting is over. “Shallow” could win both awards and set up a win at the Oscars for Best Song, as well as help the movie garner votes.

Other nominees this morning include Cardi B, who somehow got Album of the Year nomination along with Drake, Brandi Carlisle, Janelle Monae, the Black Panther soundtrack, HER Music, and Post Malone.

A major contender in Best Song and Best Record is also “Meet Me in the Middle” by Maren Morris et al.

None of the Best Song contenders has just one or two writers, but committees of writers, producers, and miscellaneous people. The criteria for Best Song has obviously changed a lot since the days of real compositions.

Best New Artist: Chloe X Halle, Luke Combs, Greta Van Fleet, H.E.R., Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha, and Jorja Smith are the nominees.

Full list to come.
