The musician with the biggest smile might be rapper Kendrick Lamar, whose eight nominations (mostly for his soundtrack work on Black Panther: The Album, Music From and Inspired By) might pale in comparison to the Pulitzer Prize for Music he achieved earlier this year.

Keep in mind: they didnt nominate SWEETENER, REPUTATION or QUEEN for album of the year.

It's a big day for the music industry: CBS News officially announced the nominees for the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Drake, a Grammy veteran, also sits at the top of the list with seven nominations for his 2018 album, Scorpion.

Maren Morris scored five nominations this year, including two nods for her EDM collaboration with Zedd and Grey, "The Middle" as well as a nomination for Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance.

This year he is nominated for his work on the Black Panther soundtrack.

He didn't run away with the crown, though, as Drake was right behind him with seven nominations of his own.

Lamar's Top ten hit, the SZA-assisted "All the Stars", is nominated for both record and song of the year. He said women need to "step up" if they wanted more nominations in the top categories. Monáe, herself snagged an Album Of The Year nomination for her most recent project, Dirty Computer.

Kanye West's latest effort Ye was also snubbed, but he did receive a nod for Producer of the Year, following his run of executive producing a total of five albums over the course of the last six months. Boi-1da is contending for the Producer of the Year, Non-Classical award.

Ten-time Grammy victor Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande and Camila Cabello were among the biggest snubs in top categories that were dominated by hip-hop and R&B.

"[.] I didn't even drop an album", she added.

- Best pop solo performance: "Colors", Beck; "Havana (Live)", Camila Cabello; "God Is A Woman", Ariana Grande; "Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Goin'?)", Lady Gaga; "Better Now", Post Malone. Samuels also received two nominations in the best rap song category as a songwriter on Eminem's Lucky You and Jay Rock's Win.

Mac Miller, who died in September, earned a nomination for best rap album with "Swimming".

After the nominations were announced, stars began reacting to the honor on social media, with many using various platforms to share their excitement.

Lamar has won 12 Grammys throughout his career. When the awards are actually handed out at the 61st annual ceremony (Feb. 10, 2019, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles), we'll see if the pumping up of nominees is just window dressing.
