“The Idler Wheel…” - Fiona Apple
“Biophilia” - Bjork
“Making Mirrors” - Gotye -- David, Darrin
“Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” - M83
“Bad As Me” - Tom Waits
A female artist has not won in this category since Sinead O’Connor did with “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got” in 1990. Therefore, it is not likely that either Bjork or Fiona Applewill win.
Gotye is the only artist with multiple nominations this year including Record of the Year.
