In the category of album of the year, Hill will compete against a nearly all-female field, including Madonna, Sheryl Crow, and Shania Twain. Hill also received nods in the best new artist, pop, R&B, rap, and producer categories.
Twain and Crow tied for six nominations each. Women dominated the major categories, with eight of the 10 record and album of the year nods. Crow also received a nomination for producer of the year.
Record of the year nominees included Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On, Twain's You're Still the One, the Brandy & Monica duet The Boy is Mine, the Goo Goo Dolls' Iris, and Madonna's Ray of Light.
Album of the year bids went to Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, Crow's The Globe Sessions, Madonna's Ray of Light, Twain's Come on Over, and Garbage's Version 2.0.
Winners will be announced Feb. 24 during ceremonies to be broadcast live by CBS.
