The 2019 Grammy nominees have been unveiled, and there is no shortage of queer women. In fact, out folk singer Brandi Carlile is the most-nominated woman at the 61st annual Grammy Awards with six noms (including album of the year for By the Way, I Forgive You and both song of the year and record of the year for her track “The Joke”).
Carlile isn’t the only LGBTQ female to get nominations in the Big Four categories either. Lady Gaga trails Carlile with five nominations, with A Star Is Born standout “Shallow” receiving noms in the song of the year and record of the year categories. Janelle Monáe joins Carlile in the album of the year category with Dirty Computer. Bebe Rexha, who opened up about her sexuality earlier this year, is nominated for best new artist.
