Just as notable are some of the nods that women have received this year. In fact, each of the big four categories - record of the year, song of the year, album of the year and best new artist - is dominated by women. For example, take the Album of the Year and Best New Artist categories, where love was shown for: Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Brandi Carlile, Janelle Monáe, Jorja Smith, H.E.R. and many more.
