article imageGrammy noms: Sam Smith, Beyonce lead the way with 6 each

By Tim O'Brien     Dec 5, 2014 in Entertainment
UPDATE: In a long promotional gimmick, the final Grammy nomination was announced as part of a TV special on CBS tonight (Dec. 5). The announcement for Album of the Year nominees was held until this broadcast.
And those nominees are (drum roll, please):
Album Of The Year
"Morning Phase," Beck
"Beyoncé," Beyoncé
"X," Ed Sheeran
"In the Lonely Hour," Sam Smith
"Girl," Pharrell Williams
With that announcement it means Sam Smith and Beyonce are tied for the most nominations with six each. Beyonce also become the most-nominated females artist of all-time, which the Hollywood Reporter noted a long time ago (earlier today). She was tied with Dolly Parton going in with 46.
EARLIER: Sam Smith is having a good day. As the Grammy Awards nominations play out, Smith is the headline so far. He has been nominated for best new artist, record of the year, song of the year and pop solo performance and pop vocal album.
The song is "Stay with Me" and the album is "In the Lonely Hour."
EARLIER: On a Friday morning, The Grammy nominations are being announced. However, it will not be until Friday evening when the last award is heard. Seem odd?
The last award being Album of the Year. That seems to indicate indicates that the award for Album of the Year is like Best Picture or Entertainer of the Year, or even Best Drama or Comedy.
But to release these on Friday is odd. This is Friday, unless there is breaking news, many would rather ignore as they head into a weekend. Even many news outlets want to get out and will ignore many stories as the dump day progresses. In Washington D.C., this day is notoriously known as Dump Day, when they get that bad news out or certain stories that need to be done, but the results are not favorable, get released today.
In any event, at that would be the Grammy Awards, which will be handed out Feb. 8, are in progress.
Nominations are not just being announced at once. Nope. Four categories were announced on "CBS This Morning" today (Dec. 5). Throughout the day, the rest of field are announced. Then, during "A Very Grammy Christmas" on CBS tonight, Album of the Year nominees being revealed.
Even though the Grammys have cut down on categories, there are still 83. So, have the announcement last all day may make sense.
