  • Grammy nominations are due Friday. Here are three story lines to follow

That's great, but it's also notable that DAMN, which was one of the year's biggest albums in terms of both critical and fan reception, wasn't nominated for Record Of The Year or Album Of The Year.

The nominees for the 2019 Grammys mark a departure from this year's show, where women were under-represented in the top four categories. Immediately following, at 8:45 a.m. ET, the Recording Academy will announce nominations across all 84 categories.

Singer and songwriter Taylor Swift is usually one to take home gold during the Grammys, boasting 10 wins to-date. The pop singer, raised in Pickering, Ont., was named in two categories - song of the year for In My Blood and best pop vocal album. Six women are nominated for Best New Artist while five women are up for Album, Record, and Song of the Year.

But the Recording Academy continued its fraught relationship with Jay-Z and Beyoncé by shutting out their joint album "Everything is Love" from major categories. Lastly, their song "Apes***" also received a nomination for Best Music Video. His fellow saxophonists Joshua Redman and Tia Fuller are also nominated, respectively, for Still Dreaming and Diamond Cut.

- Best alternative music album: "Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino", Arctic Monkeys; "Colors", Beck; "Utopia", Bjork; "American Utopia", David Byrne; "Masseduction", St. Vincent. But West has only ever won big in smaller categories such as Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.

Justin Timberlake, whose "Man of the Woods" albums flopped earlier this year, picked up a nod for "Say Something", his collaboration with Chris Stapleton.

Thanks to curating the soundtrack to "Black Panther", Lamar earned nominations that include album, song and record of the year. The group snagged a nod for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their song "Don't Go Breaking My Heart", which they released over the summer. Instead, country singer Kacey Musgraves beat him to the punch with a nomination for album of the year.

Miller's album was nominated for Best Rap Album.

Dating back to a 2012 "Best New Artist" nomination, Cole has been considered five times for trophies.
