The nominations for the 66th year Grammy Awards dropped earlier today, with Taylor Swift breaking the record for most nominations in the Song of the Year category this year, with “Anti-Hero” as her seventh place. The 33-year-old took the record from music industry legends Paul McCartney and Lionel Richie, who previously held the record, at six nominations.
Swift has seemingly won every award in over 15 years, but the pop superstar is still not the most lauded performer on music’s biggest night . Even with 46 nominations and 12 wins to her name, she still has a way to go to break that record.
Who holds the record for most Grammy nominations?
Husband and wife Beyoncé and Jay-Z hold the joint record for most Grammy nominations, at 88 each – not a bad Mr. & Mrs. matching set! If you want to get really technical about it, thirteen of Beyoncé’s nominations are for her former girl group, Destiny’s Child, but they’re very much hers, as a nominated nominee, and another for being part of “The Carters ,” a It is a group that includes her and Jay-Z.
This technicality means that Jay-Z holds the record for most Grammy nominations as a solo artist, at 85 – as he also has three nominations as part of The Carters. However, most people would agree that nominations are nominations, whether individual or part of a group effort.
For most Grammy nominations for a single ceremony, this is another shared title. Michael Jackson and Babyface each had 12 nominations at the 1984 and 1997 Grammy Awards, respectively – although Jackson won 8 of his that night. For bands, this record is held by U2, with 22 wins and 46 nominations to their name. In the world of music composition and scoring, John Williams comes out on top, with 75 nominations.
Who holds the record for most Grammy wins?
As for the title of most Grammy wins, Beyoncé holds that record all by herself. Between 2000 and 2023, the 42-year-old won an incredible 32 awards, both as a solo artist and in group nominations. Before this year, the record was held by the Hungarian-British composer and classical musician Georg Solti, with 31 Grammy Awards, before he died in 1997. She broke this record during the last Grammy Awards in February, when she won Best Electronic/Dance Album for her latest album, Renaissance.
