The Grammy nominations for the 2018 awards have been revealed, and Swifties around the world are rejoicing that Taylor Swift has been nominated for two statues. The 27-year-old megastar -- and 10-time Grammy winner -- received a nod for best song written for visual media for her Fifty Shades collaboration with ZAYN, "I Don't Wanna Live Forever," and for best country song as writer of Little Big Town's heartbreaking hit "Better Man."
But while these two noms are well-deserved, they leave a question remaining for Swift's biggest fans: Why wasn't Reputation nominated at all?
Perhaps unknown to Swift's fans, there's a very simple answer that question. There was no snubbing involved on this one -- Reputation wasn't even eligible. As explained on the official Grammys website, "for the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards, albums must be released between Oct. 1, 2016, and Sept. 30, 2017." This means that the album's Nov. 10 release date was more than a month after the 2017 cutoff.
