Grammys Winners 2016

(Recording Acadmey)

Monday’s 2016 Grammys will honor the very best in music. Gossip Cop has a full list of the winners!

Trophies for the 58th annual Grammy Awards will be handed out in two ceremonies. First, the “Premiere Ceremony” will give away the bulk of the honors beginning at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. Then, the main ceremony will see the winners of the biggest awards revealed starting at 8 p.m.

All music nominated was released between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015. Kendrick Lamar is this year’s top nominee with nominations in 11 categories. That includes the night’s biggest award, Album Of The Year.

In that category, Lamar (To Pimp A Butterfly) is up against Taylor Swift (1989), The Weeknd (Beauty Behind The Madness), Chris Stapleton (Traveller), and Alabama Shakes (Sound & Color). Swift and The Weeknd actually follow with the second-most nominations, each having scored seven nods. But who will walk away with the most gramophones?

Gossip Cop will be updating the winners list live throughout the afternoon and evening as each category is announced. Stay tuned!
