SZA Lost All Five Of The Grammys She Was Nominated For, So People Are Furious And Confused

At last year’s ceremony, Beyoncé was nominated for nine awards, though she walked away with only two wins — one for Best Music Video for “Formation” and another for Best Urban Contemporary Album for Lemonade.

Beyoncé was also nominated for the night’s highest honor, Album of the Year, which went to Adele’s 25.

People weren’t enthused about the decision at the time, with many wondering what it would take for a black woman musician to take home that award, especially considering how universally lauded Lemonade was.

The conversation was similar for Rihanna, as well. She, too, walked home empty-handed last year despite being nominated for seven awards.
