November means the start of classic end-of-year traditions: preparing for the holidays, seeing family… and finally seeing which artists did (or didn’t) get nominated for Grammys.

On Friday (Nov. 10), the Recording Academy unveiled the full list of nominees for the 2024 Grammy Awards, set to take place Sunday, Feb. 4. In the latest round of nominations, SZA emerged with more than any other artist, receiving nine nominations, including album, record and song of the year. Phoebe Bridgers, Victoria Monét and engineer Serban Ghenea followed SZA with seven nominations each, while superstars like Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and Miley Cyrus all earned six nods apiece.

As with every other year, the list of Grammy nominees contained a series of snubs and surprises — for the 2024 ranking specifically, critics were shocked to see that country and Latin artists lacked a major presence in the Big Four categories, despite both genres dominating cultural conversations for the bulk of 2023. Even Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. expressed his surprise at not seeing Latin and country represented in the major categories, telling Billboard that the organization is working with leaders in both genres to make sure “we have the right amount of membership and representation.”

But as with the past few years, fans noticed that this years’ Grammy nominations also featured plenty of LGBTQ artists. Below, Billboard takes a look at some of the biggest takeaways for the LGBTQ community from the 2024 Grammy nominations, including Monét’s first solo nominations, representation for queer country artists, and much more:
