Beyoncé Becomes Most Grammy-Nominated Woman Of All Time


Beyoncé is officially the queen of the Grammys. As the nominations for the 57th annual Grammys rolled in on Friday, Beyoncé became the most Grammy-nominated woman of all time, surpassing Dolly Parton.

Before this year's nods were announced, Beyoncé and Parton had 46 nominations apiece, but with the nomination of "Beyoncé" for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Bey jumped ahead with 47 Grammy nominations.

Beyoncé pulled ahead of Dolly Parton by a wider margin as the remainder of the Grammy nominations were announced. The Recording Academy also nominated her self-titled album for Album of the Year and Best Surround Sound Album. She was also cited for Best Music Film ("Beyonce & Jay Z: On The Run Tour"), Best R&B Performance ("Drunk In Love) and Best R&B Song ("Drunk In Love"). This puts her at a grand total of 52 Grammy nominations so far.

Beyoncé has won 17 Grammys over the years, for her work in Destiny's Child and as a solo artist. Notably, in 2004, she was nominated for six awards and took home five; in 2010, she won in six out of the 10 categories she was nominated. Bow down ... again.
