61st Annual Grammy Awards Nominations: Complete List

The Grammys will be held on Feb. 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles

Singer, songwriter and actress Janelle Monae learned her album "Dirty Computer" was nominated for a Grammy Award while helping announce the nominees for Album of the Year.

The "Hidden Figures" star appeared emotional Friday morning as "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell said her name. 

"This album is so much bigger than me," said Monae, choking back tears. "It's not about me, it’s about a community of 'dirty computers,' marginalized voices. Being a young, black, queer woman there was something I had to say and there was a group of people I wanted to celebrate and I'm happy to be representing them." She added, "I hope they feel heard and loved and celebrated." 

Cardi B's "Invasion of Privacy," Brandi Carlyle's "By the Way I Forgive You," Drake's "Scorpion," H.E.R.'s "H.E.R," Post Malone's "Beerbongs and Bentleys," Kacey Musgraves's "Golden Hour," and "Black Panther: The Album" Feat. Kendrick Lamar also received nods in the highly coveted category. 

Nominations for the 61st annual Grammy Awards were announced Friday morning.

The Recording Academy had delayed unveiling the nominees by two days because of former President George H.W. Bush's funeral and public viewing this week in Washington. The Grammys announcement comes a day after the Golden Globe nominations. Several music superstars, including Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton and Kendrick Lamar, were all nominated for Globe awards in the best original song for a motion picture category.

The Grammys will be held on Feb. 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
