Good morning! Today marks the opening ceremony of award season, also known as the Grammy nominations. They're here — and they're both as predictable and unpredictable as the past year in music was.

Leading the nominations are the viral big three and pop's new vanguard: Lizzo, Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish. Lizzo has the most noms, a whopping eight including the four major categories: Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist. For a 31-year-old musician who languished in relative obscurity for a decade, it's a wild glow-up.

Billie and Lil Nas X are tied behind Lizzo with six nominations each. They're competing against Lizzo for Best New Artist (alongside folks like Rosalía and Maggie Rogers), Album of the Year and Song of the Year. (Apparently at random, Lil Nas X is not nominated for "Record of the Year.")

The pop girls got their due… sort of. Mainly Ariana Grande, who has five nominations (her most yet) including her first ever Album of the Year nod for Thank U, Next (which is odd, considering last year she released a little album called Sweetener, that only saw one genre-specific nomination). Lana Del Rey is nominated twice, her first time competing for Album and Song of the Year (she's never won a Grammy).

Meanwhile, industry darling Taylor Swift (who has 10 Grammys, and 32 nominations) was essentially snubbed, with only one major nomination: "Lover" for Song of the Year, even though its namesake LP Lover was largely beloved. Lover is up for Best Pop Vocal Album and "You Need to Calm Down," for Best Pop Solo Performance. PAPER cover stars BTS were also shut out completely. Jonas Brothers, Maren Morris and Tyler, the Creator received just one nomination apiece.

Indie rock got plenty of love, with Bon Iver and Vampire Weekend nominated for Album of the Year, and the former for Record of the Year with "Hey Ma." Grammys neo-R&B crooner of choice Khalid is up for Record of the Year, alongside H.E.R.

Performance line-up is yet to come: the Grammys will go down on February 10. Have at it, y'all.
