This year's set of nominations do not reflect those of 12 months ago where no women were up for either Song Of The Year or Record Of The Year, though the two most nominated artists are male: Kendrick Lamar with eight nominations and Drake with seven.

Besides Carlile, the record of the year nominees included Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin ("I Like It"); Drake ("God's Plan"); Childish Gambino ("This is America"); Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ("Shallow"); Lamar and SZA ("All the Stars"); Post Malone ("Rockstar"); and Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey ("The Middle"). Cardi B - "Girls Like You" Justin Timberlake ft. She has garnered 10 awards and is the only woman to win album of the year twice. That's because her two Grammy nods previous year disqualify her from a best new artist award. Their direct competitors are Gregory Porter, for Nat "King" Cole & Me, as well as Seal, Barbra Streisand and Willie Nelson, for albums largely featuring songbook standards.

Singer H.E.R. also received five nods for her self-titled 2017 album, including Best New Artist and Album of the Year. Another notable omission from the top categories was singer Ariana Grande, whose "Sweetener" album is shaping up as one of the year's biggest commercial successes.

The Carters did get nominations for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best R&B Performance and Best Music Video.

Ella Mai was also nominated in the Song of the Year category for her heavily rotated hit "Boo'd Up".

Hip-hop dominated across the board for a second year running - though last year, rap mogul Jay-Z racked up the most nominations but left empty-handed, and Lamar was shut out of the general categories.

But a few of the more public snubs are getting attention, including Grammy heavyweights Beyonce and Jay Z for their long-awaited joint album, Everything Is Love. Six women are nominated for Best New Artist while five women are up for Album, Record, and Song of the Year.

The awards ceremony will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Best New Artist Grammy victor and Ontario-born Alessia Cara, fellow Canadian-born singer Shawn Mendes, past nominee and Apple Music host Zane Lowe, and former nominee Janelle Monae will kick off the 2019 ceremony by revealing the nods live on "CBS This Morning" and Apple Music.
