The 2024 Grammy nominations were announced Friday morning, with SZA, Phoebe Bridgers and the Barbie movie soundtrack leading the female-dominated pack.
Across the major categories, SZA dominated with nine nominations. She was frequently recognized alongside other solo women, including Bridgers and Victoria Monet (both with seven nominations), as well as Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish, all of whom received six nods. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Jon Batiste also has six nominations.
Thanks to contributions from Eilish, Dua Lipa and Nicki Minaj, the Barbie movie soundtrack picked up 11 nods, with Eilish’s song What Was I Made For? alone picking up five nods.
Canadians were well-represented across categories, with Drake, Ryan Gosling and alt-rock band Alvvays among the nominees. Drake — who ended his long boycott of the Grammys this year — picked up a nod in the best melodic rap category with Spin Bout U, his collaboration with 21 Savage. The duo were also recognized for best rap song (Rich Flex) and best rap album (Her Loss).
Ryan Gosling’s Barbie movie ballad I’m Just Ken was recognized in the best song written for visual media category; while Alvvays’ song Belinda Says from their 2022 album Blue Rev is up for best alternative music performance. Canadian audio engineer Serban Ghenea, who has mixed hits for Swift and Rodrigo, picked up seven nominations.
Other Canadian nominees include Joni Mitchell and Rufus Wainwright — each with a nomination for best folk album — while Toronto instrumentalist band BADBADNOTGOOD, Montreal singer-songwriter Allison Russell, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Feist and Montreal conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who is the director of the Metropolitan Opera, also picked up nods.
The Grammy Awards will air on Feb. 4, 2024.
