SZA leads the female-dominated 66th Grammy Awards with nine nominations for her chart-topping SOS, including Album of the Year.
SZA is up for multiple huge categories, including Record of the Year for Kill Bill and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. Trailing behind SZA is Phoebe Bridgers, who is a co-nominee with SZA for their collaboration on Ghost In The Machine, along with Victoria Monét, boygenius, Jon Batiste, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and more. Phoebe Bridgers and Victoria Monét hold seven nominations each, whereas the rest listed have six.
The Feb. 4, 2024 award show will take place at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California. The Grammy Awards is scheduled to air live at 5 p.m. PST and 8 p.m. EST on CBS. It will also stream on Paramount+ for viewers. Although the scheduled programming may not be new to the Grammys, there are new award categories added to the roster this year.
The Recording Academy added three awards for 2024: Best African Dance Performance, Best Alternative Jazz Album and Best Pop Dance Recording. Some existing categories were moved to the General Field to make room, including Songwriter of the Year, Non-Classical and Producer of the Year, Non-Classical.
“By introducing these three new categories, we are able to acknowledge and appreciate a broader array of artists, and relocating the Producer of the Year and Songwriter of the Year categories to the General Field ensures that all our voters can participate in recognizing excellence in these fields,” Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. said. “We are excited to honor and celebrate the creators and recordings in these categories, while also exposing a wider range of music to fans worldwide.”
