Loser: One Direction
The British boy band looked like a sure bet for best new artist, but the group, which landed two No. 1 albums in 2012 and sold out not just its 2012 tour, but its 2013 tour, were aced out not only for best new artist, but for any nominations at all. The biggest snub of the Grammys.
