Hip-hop and R&B complete "Grammys takeover" with 2018 nominations

  • Rock music and Ed Sheeran were conspicuously absent from this morning's nominations. “In retrospect, Beck’s controversial album of the year win over Beyoncé in 2015 might’ve been the best thing to ever happen to the Grammys,” says Andrew Unterberger. “The upset was, if not an outright embarrassment for the Recording Academy, at least an obvious moment for much-needed reflection on what music's marquee awards wanted to become, and what they presently were. Now, three years, and some much-needed rule changes and added committees later, the Grammys finally appear ready to step into the future.”
