The 2021 Grammy nominees were first announced in late November with a slew of landmark moments in the rock categories.

This year marks the first time the Best Rock Performance category has included all women nominees. Phoebe Bridgers, first-time nominee and current Alternative Press cover star for the debut Power Issue: Women Rising, is up against Fiona Apple, Big Thief, HAIM, Brittany Howard and Grace Potter.

Best Metal Performance is also recognizing three women, which is rare for the category as only White Zombie’s Sean Yseult (1994, 1996, 1997), Nashville Pussy’s Ruyter Suys and Bonnie Buitrago (1999) and Code Orange’s Reba Meyers (2018) have been nominated previously.

This year, Meyers is nominated in the category with Code Orange again as well as first-time nominees Poppy and In This Moment fronted by Maria Brink. Body Count and Power Trip, the latter of which is a posthumous nod for vocalist Riley Gale, round out the rest of the nominations.

Best New Artist is also setting a milestone with a record of three artists nominated who openly identify as LGBTQIA+ including Bridgers, CHIKA and Kaytranada. They’ll be vying for the major category alongside Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, Ingrid Andress, Noah Cyrus and D Smoke.

Elsewhere, Billie Eilish is nominated in four categories including Best Song Written For Visual Media for “No Time To Die” for the James Bond film of the same name as well as Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for “everything i wanted.” After a historic sweep of the four major categories, if Eilish snags Record of the Year again, it will mark the second year in a row, a feat that has only been accomplished by Roberta Flack and U2.

Having surprise-released her first alternative album folklore in 2020, Taylor Swift is also up for several awards. Taking her total nominations since 2008 up to 41, the singer is being recognized in Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for folklore as well as Song Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for “cardigan.” Swift has also been nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for folklore track “exile” with Bon Iver as well as Best Song Written For Visual Media for “Beautiful Ghosts” from Cats.

The Recording Academy handed out 83 awards this year. Head below to see the complete list of Grammy Awards winners (in bold), which will be updated live throughout the evening.
