Nominations for the 63rd annual Grammys are in, and Meryl Streep is—both surprisingly and yet not at all shockingly— among the acclaimed. Let’s review the latest trophy tallies for the awards perennial:
Emmys: 5 nominations, 3 wins
Grammys: 6 nominations
Oscars: 21 nominations, 3 wins
Tonys: 1 nomination
Her narration of an audiobook—a new recording of E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web, in fact—is what notched her another Grammy nomination, this time for Best Spoken Word Album. And while a host of familiar member names from last year’s Best Song and Best Oscar race appear on the latest Grammys list (composers Hildur Guðnadóttir for Joker, Thomas Newman for 1917, John Williams for Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker; songwriters Cynthia Erivo for Harriet, and married duos Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez for Frozen II), it’s extra-cinematic projects like Meryl’s that can make nominations from other entertainment academies so rewarding to scroll through.
We’re giddy, as well, to see Academy member Beyoncé’s visual album Black Is King—still available on Disney+ for anyone slacking—reap recognition for Best Music Film, yield a Best Music Video nomination for Brown Skin Girl, and appear in the Grammy’s top categories of Record and Song of the Year for single Black Parade.
And the Grammys list is a great reminder about all the uproarious comedy specials we sometimes forget Netflix has. Rightfully so, members Tiffany Haddish and Patton Oswalt scored nominations for their ability to split sides: the recordings of each’s Netflix specials—Tiffany’s Black Mitzvah and Patton’s I Love Everything, both still available on the streaming service—made the cut for Best Comedy Album.
We’re adding all of the above to our queues.
Even more in common: Upcoming Oscars telecast producer Jesse Collins will also serve as co-executive producer of the 63rd Grammys, airing January 31 on CBS.
