The 2018 Grammy Awards celebrate the very best in music, and Gossip Cop has a full list of this year’s winners. Check out all the categories below!

As Gossip Cop reported, the nominees for the 60th annual Grammy Awards were announced in November on “CBS This Morning.” Andra Day, who was a two-time nominee in 2016, unveiled a handful of the nominations in the four General Field categories, which include Best New Artist, Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Album Of The Year. Those are widely considered to be the most coveted prizes

Jay-Z, a 21-time Grammy winner already, dominated the nominations, scoring eight nods in a variety of categories. Kendrick Lamar is vying for trophies in an impressive seven categories, while Bruno Mars picked up six nominations. SZA, who earned five nods, is this year’s most nominated woman.

Competing for Record Of The Year are Childish Gambino (“Redbone”), Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber (“Despacito”), Jay-Z (“The Story of O.J.”), Kendrick Lamar (“Humble”) and Bruno Mars (“24k Magic”). As for Album Of The Year, which was taken home by Adele (25) in 2017, there’s a number of strong contenders who could potentially take home the award. Childish Gambino (“Awaken, My Love!”), Jay-Z (4:44), Kendrick Lamar (DAMN.), Lorde (Melodrama) and Bruno Mars (24K Magic) are all hoping to walk away with the trophy.

The majority of the awards, however, won’t be handed out during the main telecast. Rather, roughly 70 honors will be distributed during the Premiere Ceremony, which takes place in the afternoon. The remaining categories are then featured during the nighttime event. The prestigious gathering is taking place at The Theater in Madison Square Garden, marking the first Grammys broadcast in New York City since 2003.

Gossip Cop will update the winners list live as each award is announced, beginning around 3 p.m. Eastern. In the meantime, check out all the categories below!
