Keith Urban, Drake shine while Taylor Swift snubbed by Grammy nominations

At the 2018 Grammys, Kendrick Lamar walked away with five trophies.

The Carters will have another chance to add to their massive awards collection at the 2019 Grammy Awards after Jay-Z was snubbed previous year at the same ceremony.

Thanks to the hit "Black Panther" film Lamar - whose album "DAMN" won the Pulitzer Prize for music this year - once again has a chance to win the coveted Album of the Year prize after three prior losses.

The "Focus" singer is up for album of the year, best new artist, best R&B performance, best R&B song and best R&B album, telling the publication how the biggest surprise was for album of the year since her last tapes were just EPs. His song God's Plan is also vying for best rap performance against Travis Scott's Sicko Mode, a track where Drake appears as a guest.

Mendes scored two nominations for song of the year for "In My Blood" and best pop vocal album.

For a little perspective, Carlile's six nominations are more than the five each received by red-hot stars Cardi B and Childish Gambino - two of the most talked-about artists of the year.

- Best pop vocal album: "Camila", Camila Cabello; "Meaning of Life", Kelly Clarkson; "Sweetener", Ariana Grande; "Shawn Mendes", Shawn Mendes; "Beautiful Trauma", Pink; "Reputation", Taylor Swift.

"It's been out for over a year, and it's never been nominated, but the bond it gave you and I was something I hadn't felt before", she wrote on Instagram of the project.

Folk singer Brandi Carlile has bagged six nominations, while Lady Gaga, Childish Gambino (Donald Glover's musical alter-ego) and Cardi B each have five.

The nominees for the 2019 Grammys mark a departure from this year's show, where women were under-represented in the top four categories. Lastly, their song "Apes***" also received a nomination for Best Music Video. People often state that the Grammy's are based on politics and not generally the best music that's out there. The soundtrack for "A Star Is Born" was released after Grammy eligibility, though "Shallow" was released in time and also earned Cooper two nominations.

"Everything Is Love" was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
