SZA, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, Jon Batiste and Boygenius also picked up Album of the Year and Record of the Year nominations, while the “Barbie” soundtrack appeared in a number of top categories including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For” and Song of the Year for Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night.”

In terms of total numbers, SZA topped all with nine nominations, followed by Phoebe Bridgers, Serban Ghenea and Victoria Monét with seven each. Jack Antonoff, Boygenius, Miley Cyrus, Brandy Clark, Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish each picked up six nominations in total.
