(CNN) – Nominations for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards were announced Tuesday on “CBS This Morning.”

Singer Andra Day revealed the nominations in four categories: record of the year, song of the year (which goes to the writers), best new artist and album of the year.

The Latin single “Despacito” keeps its winning streaking alive by snagging nominations for both song of the year and record of the year.

Joining “Despacito” and “4:44” as song of the year nominees were “Issues,” “1-800-273-8255,” and “That’s What I Like.”

In addition to “4:44,” “Awaken, My Love!” by Childish Gambino, “DAMN” by Kendrick Lamar, “Melodrama” by Lorde and “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars were nominated for best album.

In the record of the year category, “Redbone” by Childish Gambino, “Humble” by Kendrick Lamar and “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars joined “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber and “The Story Of O.J.” by Jay-Z.

Best new artist nominees are Alessia Cara, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, Julia Michaels and SZA.

There were a few surprises and snubs.

Childish Gambino got five nominations for “Awaken, My Love!,” despite not making it onto most critics’ top-10 lists.

Wildly popular singer Ed Sheeran was shut out of the major categories. He was nominated for best pop solo performance for “Shape of You” and “Divide” nabbed a nomination for best pop vocal album.

Harry Styles was also shut out after releasing his debut album – which received mostly positive reviews.

Taylor Swift didn’t garner any nominations for new music from her latest album “Reputation.”

Freshman rapper Cardi B dethroned Swift this year for the number one spot on the charts with her hit “Bodack Yellow” and has now also scored her first Grammy nod for best rap performance and best rap song.

In the former category, the rapper is competing against her new fiancé, rapper Offset, whose group Migos is also nominated for their hit, “Bad And Boujee” featuring best new artist nominee Lil Uzi Vert.

The major categories were dominated by artists of color — bucking the trend in Hollywood, which has often been criticized for its lack of diversity in award nominees.

For the first time, all voting members will cast their their awards votes online rather than by paper ballot.
