Hozier may have been a Grammy favorite last year, when he was nominated for Song of the Year for "Take Me to Church," but he wasn't so lucky this time around. Recording academy voters snubbed him across the board, including Best New Artist, which we thought he'd win. (See the complete list of nominations here and read a recap of the roster here.)

Grammy Awards: Complete list of nominations

Our forum posters have exploded with outrage over who was denied a chance to contend for these kudos which will be handed out on Feb. 15. Below, just a sampling of their thoughts. 

Which artists, albums and songs that went MIA this year have you most riled? Have your say here

bondzzz: LOL. Our prediction of Hozier winning I guess is not happening.

glamorous: Meghan Trainor not receiving any pop nominations.

Kadu335: Quite upset that Kacey Musgraves only got one nom (Best Country Album). I was expecting at least two more (Country Duo and Country Song) … Not that I was endorsing it, but I'm quite surprise Meghan Trainor isn't featured more in the pop categories… her only nomination in Best New Artist.

King Kunta: Big Sean should've gotten Drake or Nicki's spot in Best Rap Album.

Back To Basics: Honey, I just knew Foo Fighters would be an Album of the Year nominee. I'm kind of shocked. What's even more surprising is that they were snubbed in Best Rock Album.

ProfessorChaos: I'd also say the lack of the Top 40-friendly EDM acts not named Diplo & Skrillex (Zedd, Calvin Harris, DJ Snake, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Diplo's Major Lazer) in the dance categories [is surprising].

Manuelcolon: Lana Del Rey being snubbed for the second year in a row, with a deserving album. It makes me upset how they nominated her for "Paradise" with no reason, and now they just don't want to give her a nomination again.

midnightmelanin: Carly Rae Jepsen was definitely snubbed for Best Pop Vocal Album for her album "E-MO-TION." Easily one of the best pop vocal albums of 2015.

TWGagamon: Major Lazer's "Lean On" snubbed in everything.

Final2: No Carly Rae Jepsen in Pop Album and no Elle King in Best New Artist; I thought for sure they'd grab nominations there.

  1. They don’t give Lana Del Rey a nomination because if she is nominated, she would be the only one in the list to deserve to win. So they prefer to nominate the minors and the overrated. She could have easily won for Ultraviolence last year, and Honeymoon this year, only if she was nominated. It’s not in their favor to make her win.. + money talks here..

  2. UGH it is UNFORGIVABLE that Lana Del Rey wasn’t nominated *AT ALL* for Ultraviolence last year OR Honeymoon THIS YEAR. The Grammy’s have gone WAY down hill…and they can’t even be consistent in their categories…some artists are nominated in a “Best Pop ____” category and also a “Best Rock ____” category…? WTF is that?
