Kendrick Lamar woke up today to some great news: The rapper was nominated for 11 Grammy Awards, making him the artist with the most nods for the 2016 show.
But not everyone fared as well as Lamar. Plenty of artists were snubbed in spite of their smash hits this past year. Here are our five of the biggest snubs of the 2016 Grammy Awards.
1. Fetty Wap: Hardly anyone had heard of the young rapper from Paterson, New Jersey, in 2014, but Fetty Wap skyrocketed to fame after his song "Trap Queen" crept up the charts in 2015, making him a total breakout name this year. Sure, the rapper/songwriter received nods for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance, but the newbie didn't get any love for Best New Artist.
2. Drake's "Hotline Bling": Okay, so this one is not a snub, it turns out, but it's still a surprise. Apparently, Drake's team did not submit the singer's ubiquitous song, "Hotline Bling," for Grammy consideration because it hadn't gained enough traction by the Grammy Awards' deadline, reports Fuse. Drake can comfort himself with the fact that he is 2015's most memeworthy artist; plus, he was still nominated for several awards, including Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album. Those seem like fair consolation prizes.
3. The exes: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez both had a big year with their new albums "Purpose" and "Revival," respectively, but Gomez didn't receive a single nomination, and Bieber barely got one. Skrillex and Diplo's "Where Are U Now," featuring Bieber, picked up a nod for Best Dance Recording, and Diplo received a nomination for producing the track, but Bieber himself didn't get any love for "What Do You Mean."
4. The pop queens: Queen Bey did not receive a nomination for "Feeling Myself" with Nicki Minaj and ouch -- this is the first time Beyonce hasn't been up for an award since 2004. We get the feeling she has enough of them not to feel too bad.
The other pop heavy hitters who the Grammy Awards passed on? Rihanna didn't receive any recognition at all this year, even with the singles "FourFiveSeconds" and "Bitch Better Have My Money," and the original queen of pop, Madonna, was also ignored in spite of this year's "Rebel Heart." It's not good enough to be the queen anymore.
5. Foo Fighters: Grammy darlings the Foo Fighters didn't get Best Rock Album love this year for "Sonic Highways," but they did receive a nomination for Best Music Film for the corresponding feature documentary, as well as a nod for Best Rock Performance for "Something From Nothing."
The Grammys will air on CBS at 8 p.m. on Feb. 15, 2016.
