SNUB: Kanye West
Check out a complete list of Grammy nominees here.
To lead the Grammy Award nominations with seven nods is no snub, but the biggest shock is that his "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" didn't earn an Album of the Year. As a matter of fact, he showed up in only one major general category (Song of the Year, "All of the Lights"), with five other nominations relegated to rap categories (and one to packaging). The Academy obviously thought West the belle of the ball, but overlooked this critically and commercially admired album in favor of singles artists like Rihanna and Bruno Mars.-KH
