The biggest snub is to Taylor Swift.

Her Reputation album only received one nomination. She’s up for Best Pop Vocal Album. Considering her Grammy history, this was a shocking development.

Beyonce and Jay-Z’s joint album Everything Is Love was shut out of any consideration.

Ariana Grande’s Sweetener only pulled in two nominations after pundits thought the album would get more nominations.
