UPDATE: Beyonce actually passed Dolly Parton as the most-nominated woman in Grammy history last year, not today; we neglected to count her credit as a producer on the Dreamgirls soundtrack. This means she has now passed producer David Foster and is the sixth most-nominated artist overall.

With just one Grammy nomination, Beyonce has slipped past Dolly Parton to become the most-nominated woman in Grammy history.

Prior to Friday morning, Bey and Dolly were tied at 46 Grammy noms apiece -- but thanks to Beyonce's Beyonce getting nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Queen Bey now reigns as the most Grammy-nominated woman ever.

In terms of most Grammy-nominated artist overall, she's currently tied with producer David Foster for seventh place. But the 2015 Grammy nominees haven't been revealed in full yet -- with one more nom, she'll move past him, too.

As for wins, Beyonce has won 17 so far. But given the quality of Beyonce, don't be surprised if that total changes at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.
