Despite being released to largely mixed or negative reviews, Jay-Z's Magna Cart...Holy Grail leads the way in all of the rap categories. It is nominated for Best Rap Album - alongside Drake's Nothing Was The Same, Kendrick's Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, Macklemore's The Heist and Kanye West's Yeezus - and four different tracks appear in the remaining three rap categories. 'Tom Ford' is up for Best Rap Performance - alongside 'Berzerk' by Eminem, 'Started From the Bottom' by Drake, 'Swimming Pools (Drank)' by Kendrick and 'Thrift Shop' by Macklemore - 'Part II (on the Run)' and 'Holy Grail,' featuring Beyonce and Justin Timberlake respectively, are both up for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration - along with 'Power Trip' by J. Cole and Miguel, 'Now or Never' by Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige and 'Remember You' by Wiz Khalifa and The Weeknd - and 'Holy Grail' is up for Best Rap Song, against 'Started From the Bottom,' 'Thrift Shop,' Kanye's 'New Slaves' and 'F*ckin' Problems' by A$AP Rocky, featuring Drake, 2 Chainz & Kendrick Lamar.

With Magna Carta being showered with Grammy acceptance despite being released to limited praise, one album that was widely heralded as one of 2013's best: Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, has struggled to find the same kind of recognition. The album is up for Best Pop Vocal Album - alongside Paradise by Lana Del Rey, Pure Heroine by Lorde, Unorthodox Jukebox by Bruno Mars and Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke - and the songs 'Mirrors' and 'Suit and Tie' are up for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance respectively, but other than these three nods there's no more love for JT.

The 2014 Grammy Awards will be held in Los Angeles this January, with a number of the awards being handed out prior to the official ceremony, which will be aired on CBS. The full list of nominees is available here.
