Statuesque: Here are the nominees battling it out at the 2016 Grammy awards


The 58th annual Grammy Awards is set to go down tonight in Los Angeles, and with 83 categories, there is a lot to take in. Aside from the giving out of statues, the night’s bullet points are no doubt interesting: LL Cool J will host for the fifth straight year, Lady Gaga will pay tribute to the late David Bowie, Run-DMC will be the first rap group to receive a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and live performers include Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, and Adele, and others.

But as usual, it’s those damn awards that might provide the biggest drama at the Staples Center. And if you have lost track of just who is nominated — and for what — recap with our guide to some of the bigger categories below. We won’t bother making predictions, unless Kendrick is involved. He should win everything.
