NARAS, CBS Shuffle Grammy Noms Plan

The Recording Academy and CBS are shaking up the Grammy nominations process, returning to the traditional early morning unveiling of most categories — other than the top prize of album of the year — after announcing key categories as part of a primetime special for the past six years. This year, album of the year nominees will be revealed during the Dec. 5 “A Very Grammy Christmas” special. The nominees in the 82 other categories will be released that morning.
