We're slowly inching closer to award season, and tonight we learned who scored nominations for the biggest ceremony in the music industry: the Grammys. Last year was all about the ladies, but this time around the men are stepping up. Eminem got the most nods with eight, including song of the year and record of the year, while newcomer Bruno Mars nipped at his heels with seven nominations (guess he's not just popular among the Glee club). Speaking of the gleeks, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the cast was recognized all on their own, for their "Regionals version" of "Don't Stop Believin'" and best soundtrack.
Just because the men came out on top this year doesn't mean the ladies won't be represented. As usual, Lady Gaga got plenty of recognition, along with Katy Perry and Rihanna. Other nominees that got me smiling are Arcade Fire, who picked up three noms including album of the year, and The Black Keys and Cee-Lo Green, who each picked up four nods apiece. Oh, and even the Twi-hards of the world have a reason to celebrate: the soundtrack for Eclipse scored a nod for best soundtrack.
There's a lot to digest before the gramophone trophies are distributed on February 13, so check out the full list of nominees when you read more
