Fans think Taylor Swift was snubbed by the 2019 Grammys. Here’s why they’re wrong.

Taylor Swift received just one nomination for the 61st annual Grammy Awards, which will take place on Sunday, February 10.
Given that Swift has traditionally been a Grammys darling, this shocked many critics and outraged fans.
But we can’t truly call the underwhelming number of nominations a “snub” when the album was the most underwhelming of her career.

“Reputation” isn’t even the best in the one category it was nominated (best pop vocal album).
If anything, the 2018 single “Delicate” deserved a nod for song of the year.

Throughout her career, Taylor Swift has been the definition of a Grammys darling: She became the youngest artist ever to win album of the year with “Fearless,” and later became the first woman ever to win the award twice with “1989.”

But this time around, the riskiest album of her career, “Reputation,” essentially received a cold pat on the back. Swift’s newest body of work was nearly shut out of the 61st annual Grammy Awards, which will take place on Sunday, February 10.

“Reputation” was a divisive effort, but Swift’s gambit paid off — at least commercially. Despite its 2017 release date and minimal follow-up promotion, it was the biggest-selling album of 2018. Its perfunctory nomination for best pop vocal album translates as a conscious decision to shut Swift out of the major awards, which naturally shocked many critics and outraged fans.

Tay got SNUBBED so hard ohmygod 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️😭 Rep deserved AOTY! Period.
