58th GRAMMY Awards Nominations Dec 7th 2015 LA

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someoneShare on Reddit

58th GRAMMY Awards Nominations Dec 7th 2015 LA58th GRAMMY Awards Nominations Dec 7th 2015

The Recording Academy® will kick off the announcement of the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards® nominations Monday, Dec. 7th by revealing the nominees in the four General Field categories (Best New Artist, Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Album Of The Year) live on “CBS This Morning.” Immediately following, at 8:30 a.m. ET, nominations across all 83 categories will be announced via press release and made available on GRAMMY.com.

Music’s Biggest Night scheduled for Monday, Feb. 15th, 2016, at Staples Center in Los Angeles

GRAMMY Week — a weeklong series of cultural events culminating with Music’s Biggest Night — will again feature celebrations of music, education and philanthropy, including the annual MusiCares Person of the Year tribute, Clive Davis’ and The Recording Academy’s Pre-GRAMMY Gala, the Special Merit Awards Ceremony & Nominees Reception, the Producers & Engineers Wing event, and the Entertainment Law Initiative luncheon, among other events.

This edition of the Grammy Awards presentation will mark the first time the ceremony will be held on a Monday, after several years when the awards were presented on Sundays. The move is said to be temporary, as this edition will fall in an American holiday weekend (15 February will be President’s Day), and the Grammy organization opted for a ceremony to be held at the end, rather than in the middle of, this long holiday weekend. In addition, the move also avoids the ceremony facing stiff ratings competition from AMC’s hit horror series The Walking Dead.

The GRAMMY Awards telecast is one of television’s major broadcast events, ranking as one of the highest-rated and most-watched specials. This year’s 57th GRAMMYs drew 27 million viewers and generated 20.9 million show-related tweets globally. A combined viewership of more than 40 million in the U.S. alone tuned in for three GRAMMY-related shows during GRAMMY “season”: the 57th GRAMMY telecast, “A Very GRAMMY Christmas” and the star-studded “Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life — An All-Star GRAMMY Salute.”

With more than 20 years in the business, Uncle Snoop has become an international name for his work in music, film, entrepreneurship and philanthropy.

“With the huge success of the first two shows, I’m excited to host my third BET ‘Hip Hop Awards’ this year,” said Uncle Snoop. “We’re gonna do it big with more surprises and more performances—you’re not gonna wanna miss this!”

For a second year in a row, Drake leads the BET “Hip Hop Awards” 2015 with twelve impressive nominations for ‘Best Live Performer,’ ‘Lyricist of the Year,’ ‘MVP of the Year,’ ‘Album of the Year,’ ‘Hustler of the Year,’ ‘Made-You-Look Award (Best Hip Hop Style)’ and as a featured artist for two ‘Sweet 16: Best Featured verses,’ ‘Best Hip Hop Video,’ two ‘Best Hip Collabo, Duo or Group’ and ‘People’s Champ Award’ nods.
