Why Isn't Taylor Swift Nominated For the 2018 Grammys?

The Reason Taylor Swift's Reputation Wasn't Nominated For a Grammy This Year

Taylor Swift's Reputation broke a handful of records last year, but it isn't up for a Grammy this year. No, the 10-time winner didn't get snubbed — her sixth album simply wasn't eligible. To be considered for the 2018 Grammys, albums must be released between Oct. 1, 2016, and Sept. 30, 2017. While Swift's lead single, "Look What You Made Me Do," was released during that window, Reputation, which dropped on Nov. 10, missed the cutoff date by a little over a month.

Even though Reputation isn't up for any awards, Swift still managed to nab two Grammy nominations: one for "I Don't Wanna Live Forever," her duet with Zayn Malik on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, and another for her songwriting credit on Little Big Town's "Better Man." While Swift didn't end up taking home either of the awards during the show, we have a feeling she will have even more opportunities to win next year when Reputation is Grammy-eligible.
