Predictably, BeyoncéDrakeRihanna, and Adele all got multiple noms—and there were a few sleeper hits that crept in as well. Ahead, here are the highlights of the nominations for 2017 (if you’re curious about who’s up for the Best Historical Album award or whatever, you can head to the Grammys site for the full list).
