The Grammy nominations will be announced on Wednesday, November 20, and the recording academy has just announced new details about the unveiling.
The announcement will begin at 8:20am Eastern Time — sorry west-coasters, that means you’ll be getting up at 5:20am. Recording academy president and CEO Deborah Dugan and chair of the Board of Trustees Harvey Mason Jr. will reveal the nominees at Studio 43 at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City, and that will be streamed live on Grammy.com as well as the academy’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Additional categories will be announced on “CBS This Morning” by Gayle King and 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys, who was also just announced to be returning as the Grammy telecast’s host for the second year in a row. After the announcements, the full list of nominees in all 84 categories will be sent out by press release as well as on the official Grammy website and their various social media platforms. The winners will then be announced during a live telecast on January 26, 2020.
These Grammys will be a little different from before. This will be the second year when the top four general field categories — Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist — will have eight nominees instead of the previous five. And the eligibility period was shorter this year (October 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019); the timeline was shortened because the awards were moved up to avoid conflict with the Oscars, which decided to shift their ceremony to the beginning of February.
