    There were the usual round of perceived ‘snubs’ too, with artists like Miley Cyrus failing to get a mention anywhere, and BTS only receiving one nomination.

    Also indie rocker Liz Phair and her comeback album Soberish – hailed by music critics – was completely ignored.

    British band Wolf Alice released their third album Blue Weekend to thunderous critical acclaim, but it was left out of all the rock music categories.

    To have been eligible for a nomination this year, a recording will have had to have been released between Sept. 1, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2021.
