Not a single one. Not for The Supremes. Not for her solo career. Why? I think that’s among the biggest head-scratchers in history of any awards.March 12, 2017 at 9:51 pm #1202035488
I don’t have a reason why she never has but someone needs to get her to record an album with Tony Bennett and the Academy will fall over themselves giving them the traditional pop Grammy.March 13, 2017 at 10:38 am #1202035912

I was just thinking the same thing but maybe her and her daughterMarch 13, 2017 at 9:05 pm #1202036311
The Supremes were nominated in the 1960s, but there were few categories and they lost.
Diana Ross received nominations for some of her biggest hits such as Love Hangover, but lost to Natalie Cole’s Sophisticated Lady which is a very funky song. I think that Love Hangover split with Aretha Franklin’s Giving Him Something That He Can Feel allowing Natalie to win. Also, Natalie won 2 Grammys the previous year.
Diana was also nominated for Upside Down, but lost to Stephanie Mill’s Never Knew Love Like This Before for R&B Female. She was also nominated for Muscles, but lose to the powerhouse And I Am Telling You That I Am Not Going by Jennifer Holiday.
Endless Love with Lionel Richie received Record Of The Year and Best Pop Duo or Group nominations but lost.
Maybe her peers did not like her because of the whole Supremes/Berry Gordy situation.March 13, 2017 at 9:07 pm #1202036313
Jealousy. People did not like her in the industry. She should have won Pop Duo for Endless Love.March 13, 2017 at 9:21 pm #1202036320
I read the autobiography of Mary Wilson, co-Supreme, and she was adamant that Florence Ballard had the best voice, that they had to place her way back from the microphone to not drown out everyone else. Berry Gordy though who ended up as her husband started putting Diana Ross out in front.March 14, 2017 at 3:03 pm #1202036961
There was a lot of competition back then. She lost to some great artists/performances.March 14, 2017 at 5:21 pm #1202037029
The same question can be asked for a lot of singers. Martina McBride has been around for 25 years now and still does not have her name on one yet. Toby Keith has been around for 24 years and still doesn’t have one. Kenny Chesney has been around for 23 years and still doesn’t have one. The list goes on.
God bless you and every overlooked act always!!!

Honey, Diana Ross faced stiff competition back in the day. The artists she lost to (especially Jennifer Holliday and Stephanie Mills) were rather deserving.
It’s mind-blowing that Diana Ross has zero Grammy Awards yet Beyoncé has won 1,000 times. “Endless Love” should’ve won Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.March 16, 2017 at 12:41 pm #1202038613
I would have given “Love Hangover” Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and “Endless Love” Best Pop Group.March 16, 2017 at 1:07 pm #1202038637
Looking back, I definitely would’ve given The Supremes Best R&B Performance in 1965 for “Baby Love.” Beyond that, though, it’s surprisingly tough. I can definitely see the case for “Love Hangover” in Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1977. In the same category, 1981 is a real toughie, as you have Ross’s iconic “Upside Down” but the winning Stephanie Mills track is fantastic too and I love the Roberta Flack album that was recognized. Not a fan of “Endless Love.”
What’s stunning is she hasn’t even been nominated since 1983.

It is ironic that Diana Ross played the role of Dorothy in The Wiz the movie which was played by Stephanie Mills on Broadway.
I like Love Hangover a lot, but there isn’t much vocally because half of the song is instrumental disco. I saw this as a race between Natalie Cole’s Sophisticated Lady and Aretha Franklin’s Giving Him Something He Can Feel.May 14, 2017 at 10:56 am #1202092633
I do think that people were not happy with Diana Ross given how things turned out with The Supremes. I think that if things turned out another way, then Diana Ross would have won at least one grammy.
Eaten Alive is one of her underrated singles from the 1980s with Michael Jackson singing back up.May 14, 2017 at 12:52 pm #1202092729
Most of her nominations are for ‘vocals’ and lets face it great pop star that she is vocals have never been her strong suit.
There not a single loss that seems unjustified. She could have won for Endless Love and at least 1 Supremes nom was worthy but there is really tough competish in every category.
