Who Will Score a GRAMMY Nomination for 'Album Of The Year'?

With voting underway, it’s time to make our picks

October 4, 2019

Somewhere out there, a few brave people are carefully deciding who they think had the best album of the year, and beyond.

First-round voting for the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards started late last month and ends next week, with a lot of tough choices being made. How do you possibly narrow down an outstanding 2019-worth of bops, bangers, slaps, and whole moods into the 8 finest albums of the year? From empowering anthems to boundary-breaking boldness, this year had a lot to offer. Lucky for you, we’re here to help.

Before we get started, we should tell you that the deadline for eligibility for this year’s GRAMMYs was August 31. That means that Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding which we love and The Lumineers' ambitious III that we adore, will both have to wait until next year.

In no particular order, these are the albums we think are most likely to land a nomination for Album Of The Year when they are announced on November 20.
