(Keep in mind that the eligibility period for submissions was October 1, 2017-September 30, 2018.) This year, Cardi B is holding it down in five categories while Kendrick Lamar reigns supreme with eight nominations followed by Drake with seven to his name. Here are some other snubs and surprises from Friday's announcement.

In the decades Hip-Hop has been around, only twice did artists within the Hip-Hop community win album of the year.

The musician with the biggest smile might be rapper Kendrick Lamar, whose eight nominations (mostly for his soundtrack work on Black Panther: The Album, Music From and Inspired By) might pale in comparison to the Pulitzer Prize for Music he achieved earlier this year. The Kids Are Alright is also nominated this year for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Lamar's Top 10 hit, All the Stars, assisted by artist SZA, is nominated for both record and song of the year.

Cardi is the only woman nominated in the rap categories, with social media now adding more fuel to the fire surrounding the highly publicized feud between her and Nicki Minaj. Her latest album was only nominated for one award, best pop vocal album. Cardi's "I Like It" gained a Record of the Year nod. While she's having a more hard week than Lamar after announcing her separation from husband Offset, hopefully the Grammy news will continue to lift her spirits. Rounding out the category were Post Malone's beerbongs & bentleys, Kacey Musgraves' Golden Hour, Janelle Monae's Dirty Computer, Brandi Carlile's By the Way I Forgive You, and H.E.R.'s self-titled debut album.

His song "All the Stars" is also in the running for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Among this year's major snubs, Jay-Z and his pop queen wife Beyonce were left out of the top categories despite acclaim for their joint project "Everything is Love". Cardi will also compete for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance ("Be Careful"), and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her Maroon 5 collaboration "Girls Like You".

And Cardi B - the 26-year-old rapper from New York's Bronx neighborhood whose "Bodak Yellow" catapulted her to runaway success - scored five, including two of the most prestigious.

Nominees across the genre's were more diverse list this year due to the outcry over the lack of color at last year's award ceremony.
