What were the biggest Grammy nomination snubs this year?
I’ll limit this answer to the four main categories (Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist). Fellow answerer Carmella Mosciski listed those nominees out here. I would say Maren Morris getting just one nomination (Best Country Duo/Group Performance for "Common" with Brandi Carlile) was the biggest surprise. Her eligible album, GIRL, won the CMA Award for Album of the Year, and she had a whole slew of nominations at that ceremony. That she didn’t get a nod from the Recording Academy in any of the big four categories, especially Album of the Year, was pretty shocking. The Jonas Brothers’ smash "Sucker" was a surprising absence from the Record of the Year category. The song is up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, but for such a chart-topping hit that was surrounded by a lot of excitement about the brothers’ return to music, it seemed like a no-brainer for a ROTY nod. For Best New Artist, I would say Megan Thee Stallion is probably the snub I least saw coming. The breakout rapper had a huge year, and she seemed like a pretty safe bet, but I guess the Recording Academy disagreed. Not only was she snubbed for Best New Artist, but she was also ignored in every other category. Another artist that got completely shut out of the ceremony is Halsey. Her single "Without Me" was a really strong contender for Song or Record of the Year, and that she didn’t get recognized at all was a bit disappointing. And finally, say what you will about Taylor Swift, but the week her album Lover was released, it sold more copies than the rest of the Billboard 200 combined. Maybe it didn’t have the cultural impact of Lil Nas X or of Ariana Grande’s thank u, next, but it was widely praised by critics and was a clear success among the masses. She did scoop up three nominations (Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album) so it’s not as if she’s being ignored outright, but I suspect the fact that she’s already won Album of the Year twice outweighed the merits of the album at hand.

Who is Whoopi Goldberg?
Whoopi Goldberg, Comedian / Actor / Activist * Born: 13 November 1955 * Birthplace: New York, New York * Best Known As: Star of the Hollywood comedy Sister Act Name at birth: Caryn Elaine Johnson One of the most famous female comedians in the U.S., Whoopi Goldberg is also known for her dramatic performances in the films The Color Purple (1985, with Oprah Winfrey) and Ghost (1990, starring Demi Moore). Goldberg (who got her surname from her first husband) made a name for herself in the early 1980s with a one-woman stage production, The Spook Show. After touring the United States, she took her hit show to Broadway, which led Steven Spielberg to cast her in his film adaptation of the Alice Walker novel, The Color Purple. Goldberg earned an Oscar nomination and kicked off a movie career that has included an Oscar win for Ghost, the hit films Sister Act (1992) and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit (1993) and voice work for the animated features The Lion King (1994) and The Pagemaster (1994).

In addition to her Oscar for Ghost, Goldberg has a Grammy for Whoopi Goldberg (1985), an Emmy for hosting Beyond Tara: The Extraordinary Life of Hattie McDaniel (2002) and a Tony for producing Thoroughly Modern Millie (2002). In 2006 Goldberg jumped into the world of satellite radio, but the next year she joined the panel of hosts on TV's The View, taking the place of out-going Rosie O'Donnel. A loud, proud black woman from New York City, Goldberg and her outspoken political views have sometimes made headlines and a few enemies: in 2004 she lost her job as a representative of Slim-Fast diet products because of remarks she made that were critical of President George W. Bush... Goldberg has hosted the both the Grammys (1992) and the Oscars (1994, 1996, 1999 and 2002)... Goldberg is the author of Book (1997) and, for children, Alice (1992) and Nobody Wants to See You With Your Finger Up Your Nose, Whoopi's Big Book of Manners (2006).
