If Lamar felt like he got snubbed past year, then he'll feel better about the 2019 Grammys, as he earned more nominations than anybody else, with eight total.

Drake received a total of seven nominations, while Cardi B and Childish Gambino both earned five. As well, Drake collaborators Boi-1da and Noah Shebib were nominated for their production work.

After leading nominations a year ago, however, Jay-Z and his pop queen wife Beyonce were left out of the top categories despite acclaim for their joint project "Everything is Love".

Studio engineer Mike Bozzi (Black Panther: The Album, Post Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys) and Top Dawg Entertainment in-house producer Mark "Sounwave" Spears (Black Panther: The Album) were nominated five times each.

Six of the eight best new artist nominees are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.

Man coughs up 'perfect' blood clot
According to doctors, the clot was a near ideal cast of the man's right bronchial tree. "It's a curiosity you can't imagine". And in the midst of one coughing fit he hawked up a bronchial tree - a series of tubes that distribute air to the lungs.

After last year's show sparked a major backlash, the Recording Academy created a diversity task force responding to criticism that the show was consistently too male and too white, and ultimately expanded four of the top categories from five nominees to eight.

Taylor Swift was also snubbed by the Recording Academy over her album "Reputation". His album "Ye" did not receive any nods.

Beyonce and Jay-Z, billed as The Carters, as well Ariana Grande, didn't earn any of the big nominations. Camila Cabello, Malone, Mendes, Dan + Shay and DJ Mustard are also first-time nominees.

Violinist Christina Day Martinson, from Saskatchewan, is nominated in the classical instrumental solo category for Biber: The Mystery Sonatas with the Boston Baroque.

Women are also dominating in the Album of the Year section, and we're proud to see breakout artists H.E.R. and Tierra Whack pop up in a few spots as well. Demi Lovato - "Fall In Line" Backstreet Boys - "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper - "Shallow" Maroon 5 ft.

Obama also said the late president's life "is a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling". One saw him shot down by Japanese anti-aircraft fire over the Pacific, leaving him to be rescued by a U.S. submarine.

Toronto music scholar and past Grammy-winner Rob Bowman is part of the team behind best historical album contender Any Other Way, a compilation of music by 1960s soul singer Jackie Shane.

Two more veteran artists with North Texas backgrounds scored nominations: Burleson-raised Kelly Clarkson received a nod for Best Pop Vocal Album for "Meaning of Life", and Kirk Franklin, whose background includes Fort Worth and Arlington, received a nomination for Best Gospel Performance/Song for "Never Alone", a collaboration with Tori Kelly.

Lamar has won 12 Grammys throughout his career.

The 2018 Grammys will take place on February 10th in Los Angeles at the Staples Center.
