One Direction Fans React on Twitter to Harry Styles, Niall Horan & Other 1D Solo Grammy Snubs

Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) once proclaimed in famed romance The Notebook?, "It wasn't over. It still isn't over!" One Direction fans proclaimed the same in different words on Twitter today (Nov. 28) after none of Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn, Louis Tomlinson or Liam Payne were recognized for their solo efforts in the 2018 Grammy Awards nominations.

As a group, One Direction have never been nominated for a Grammy -- making the pain of today's individual snubs all the worse for long-time Directioners. 

Horan's self-titled debut solo album was released too late to be considered for this year's Grammys, but single "Slow Hands" was eligible. Styles' self-titled debut solo album, however, was eligible for nomination as it was released in May, while Zayn could have been nominated for his vocals on Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack smash "I Don't Want to Live Forever," alongside Taylor Swift. ("I Don't Want to Live Forever" was nominated but under the best song written for visual media category, which would award Swift, Sam Dew and Jack Antonoff, but not Zayn.)

Payne's "Strip That Down" and Tomlinson's "Back to You," both Billboard Hot 100 top 40 hits, would similarly have been eligible, as would have a pair of respective star dance collabs from both -- Payne's with Zedd on "Get Low," and Tomlinson's with Steve Aoki on "Just Hold On."

Below are just some of the louder cries over these snubs from Directioners on Twitter.
