Eminem triumphs over GaGa, Antebellum ?with 10 Grammy nods

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Rap superstar Eminem beat out two Ladys in earning the most Grammy nominations, announced Wednesday night on a live telecast. The Detroit rapper, who put out his most serious work this past year, received 10 nods total, including one for Album of the Year for his newest recording, Recovery. Not far behind were a pair of equally successful acts of 2010, Lady GaGa and Lady Antebellum, collecting six nominations apiece and each vying for Album of the Year with Eminem for The Fame Monster and Need You Now, respectively.

The shocker is GaGa's 'Bad Romance' not making the cut for Record of the Year - a huge snub, considering it was one of the biggest-selling singles of the past 12 months and has a universally loved music video (though, it does compete for Best Short Form Music Video). ROTY nominees are Cee-Lo Green's 'F*** You,' Lady Antebellum's 'Need You Now,' Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' 'Empire State of Mind,' Eminem and Rihanna's 'Love the Way You Lie,' and 'Nuthin' on You' by B.o.B. and Bruno Mars.

Among the great surprises, Arcade Fire picked up an Album of the Year nomination for the band's much-praised effort The Suburbs, folk artist Ray LaMontage deservedly nabbed a Song of the Year nod for 'Beg Steal or Borrow' (I didn't see that coming, and am delighted), jazz up-and-comer Esperanza Spalding is included in the Best New Artist Field - along with Mumford & Sons, Florence + the Machine, Drake and teen brat Justin Bieber - while Vampire Weekend earned their first trip to the Grammys by squeezing into the always-tough Best Alternative Music Album category.

Miranda Lambert added to her banner year by receiving nominations for Song of the Year ('The House That Built Me'), Female Country Vocal Performance, Country Song, Country Album, and Country Collaboration. Katy Perry is a multiple nominee, scoring mentions for Album of the Year, Female Vocal Performance, Pop Collaboration with Vocals (with Snoop Dogg for 'California Gurls') and Best Pop Vocal Album.

Of Gay interest, pop icon Elton John got a lone nomination for 'If It Wasn't for Bad' with Leon Russell, out and proud Adam Lambert got his first taste of Grammy gold with a mention for Pop Male Vocal, Lesbian newbie LaRoux is a double nominee in the Dance/Electronic field, two homo-adored comediennes (Kathy Griffin and Margaret Cho) will compete against each other for Best Comedy Album, and the cast of Glee is up for Best Pop Vocal by Duo or Group for their rendition of 'Don't Stop Believin'.' Finally, Seattle-based acts Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains are each competing in the rock field. The Grammy Awards will be televised on February 13.
